Aleph One is a cross-platform open source game engine. Aleph One is the continuation of Bungie Studios’ Marathon 2: Durandal.  The project had started in early 2000, when Bungie launched the code before being attained by Microsoft and urged the fans to develop it further.

The engine can be compiled on Linux, OS X and Windows. On Linux, Autoconf and automake are the only developer-specific dependencies. On OS X, release binaries are built using the latest Xcode (1.3b2) release was built with Xcode 10. Although native windows compilation is not tested or supported currently yet these binaries are built from Linux or OS X, using the MXE cross-compilation toolchain.

Epic Story: The game’s (Marathon) entire story (over 13000 lines of text) has been translated into seven languages.
