You are a security guard who accompanied a group of space colonists on their trip on the huge space ship, the Marathon. Suddenly, aliens who call themselves Pfhor attack the ship and massacre the colonists. What's worse, the aliens damage the omniscient super-computers on Marathon. One of them is heavily damaged, and the other becomes insane! Caught in the midst of the battle between the two AIs, trying to stay alive in the onslaught of the Pfhor, you begin the desperate fight for survival... In this first-person shooter, you have a variety of weapons that serve you in your battle against your enemies. Different types of enemies (organic or mechanical) take different amounts of damage depending on the weapon. You can also fire from two weapons (such as pistols) simultaneously. Shooting enemies is not the only thing you will do in "Marathon". It is possible to communicate with the damaged AIs of the ship by looking at messages they send you via computers. The story is unraveled...
EMR 3.0 is a unique scenario based upon the Aleph One (Marathon) engine. It is a first-person action adventure game, featuring an epic and in-depth story line. As a Federation Marine resting after your last mission, you start aboard the exploration class Starship Kronos where you learn that your real mission has yet to begin. You are re-acquainted with the AI Merlin, who introduces you to Kronos time traveling technology, and reveals your new mission: to save mankind from the clutches of Morgana and her minions. Through untamed raptor-infested jungles, castle arenas, and war-torn streets of the future, you will wield weapons from all time periods - including the Sword of Power, Excalibur - in an effort to thwart the diabolical plot that unfolds. The EMR adventure, spread across 42 solo levels, weaves a tale of truth and honor, knighthood and bravery, and darkness and treachery. EMR also delivers 27 adrenaline pumped network levels. EMR immerses you in an amazing new world.
