In Response To: Jjaro Were At Tau Ceti (Dr. Wyrm)

: Hey, long time reader first-time poster. I was curious, has a dev confirmed
: that the now-famous hidden map text "Jjaro were at tau ceti" is
: canon? I know GK has said that there are numerous ideas and themes that
: were never written down but instead talked about frequently during
: development and he has forgotten some of those now, as well as saying
: there was a desire to keep things mysterious and sometimes vague. I ask
: because of the interesting story/lore implications of that.

: Why were they there?
: Did they anticipate that encounter would happen?
: Why didn't they intervein?
: Were they there to watch the SO and/or Durandal?
: Etc.

I don't have answers to any of those questions.

However, I would like to address them in my fan-expansion, Marathon 1 Redux. My concept is that if you do exceptionally well in defending the Marathon, you would get sent down by Tycho to explore some Jjaro ruins or facilities on Tau Ceti, ultimately ending the game on a trajectory towards the successful Marathon Infinity timeline, rather than Marathon 2.

Unfortunately, it's been a one-woman show for the most part, and while I'm decent with writing, image editing, & map editing; and quickly learning lua scripting and 3D modelling, designing entire levels from scratch is not something I have sufficient experience with to really do the concept justice.
