In Response To: Thanks for the mention! (Orihaus)

: It's always been a bit of a dream of mine to end up on the Marathon Story
: page in some capacity! I would like to highlight one of the entries
: though, since I don't recall it making the story page so far, and that's
: Someplace Else / Minerva: Metastasis. These are a duology of maps for Half
: Life 1 and 2 respectively, by now almost 10 year veteran Valve level
: designer Adam Foster. Someplace Else not only uses Ydnar's majestic
: texture set but also explicitly references Marathon. The sequel, Minerva:
: Metastasis's references are less explicit, but it's always been more fun
: that way, hasn't it? Beyond that, it makes a few small tweaks to the HL2
: formula that ends up basically supercharging it, ending up as one of the
: FPS experiences I've ever played. Valve themselves agree, straight up
: hiring Adam after release.

: So, if you ever thought HL2 needed a rampant AI to guide/mess with your
: head/irritate you with cryptic Marathon references, then you're in luck.
: Say Hi to Minerva: https://store.steampowered.com/app/235780/MINERVA/

So which video with a 1-second tangential mention of marathon did you make?
