Brazilian Marathon... NO not what you think. RADIX <radixgonzo@gmail.com> writes:

After much searching, I've finally found some Marathon-related stuff from Brazilian mags.
Most of it's not actually from Computer & Games, from where these were scanned (by the folks
at Datassette, not me); that's for a different post.

Top is a demo disc advert by Z Movie Studio; bottom is a two-page advert for various
Win95 games (second page included mostly for completion). I can't read much Portuguese,
but I can tell that the M2 blurb describes the player as the "prisoner of the computer Durandal"
or something to that effect.

A bunch of Marathon-related things from MacMania issues 12 (Jan. '95), 22 (Feb. '96), and
32 (Jan. '97). Not necessarily in order, and mostly from larger features on multiple games.
All borrowed from Datassette.

The "Matar ou Morrer" article jokes(?) about a Marathon 4 and talks a bit about the three
games that used Marathon 2's engine: Damage Inc., Prime Target, and ZPC.


Details about Marathon 4 can be found <A HREF = "http~fxf´f`~Fxff´xf~~~~ here</A>


So we are all set for next Christmas thanks to Nathanial Krell <nathanielkrell@gmail.com>. He went
back in time and uncovered Battle Cat's long lost Christmas Aboard the Marathon and The 12 Days of Marathon Christmas.

Only 316 days to go folks. :)
