Marathon Moving to OS X
9:43 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The latest update to the Marathon: Aleph One web site brings news that there are plans to bring the open-sourced version of Marathon 2/Infinity to Mac OS X. It is in the 'carbonization' process now, and there is a page dedicated to this port's progress. Here's a clip from the Aleph One site:

Steven Bytnar has been Carbonizing Aleph One, a process that will allow the game to take advantage of Mac OS X's protected memory. He has set up a web page at SourceForge to cover the development process. This comes at a good time; the public beta of Mac OS X is right around the corner!
This is great timing, as Steve Jobs recently announced the public beta for OS X will be released later in the month. Along with the OS X port, a FreeBSD version is also now being created. We reported last week that a Linux build of Aleph One was out, and apparently the BSD build is based upon this code.

It's amazing how many platforms will now get to have a Marathon experience. Head over to the Aleph One site for more information on all of the ports, as well as the latest news regarding the project.
