How To Play Bungie’s Marathon Game Series On Linux



Aleph One is an open-source re-implementation of the Marathon 2 gaming engine for Macintosh. Officially, Aleph One can play Marathon 1, Marathon 2, and Marathon Infinity. Additionally, the engine has the ability to play custom, fan-made versions of Bungie’s Marathon game series (aka scenarios).






The engine itself is not very demanding and can run on Linux systems with as little as 512 MB of RAM. Better yet, all three Marathon games are free to download!



Arch Linux


Arch Linux users are in luck, as there are specific AUR snapshots for each of the Marathon games. To start the installation, open up a terminal window and use the Pacman package manager to sync the latest version of Git. Then, use Git to clone the game’s source files.
