Eight Years of Pfhorte

Eight Years of PfhorteRemembering the early Marathon map editors gets this reporter to wheezing and coughing, as well as an irresistible urge to watch a Macintosh spontaneously reboot. Bungie Sightings hopes that other old Marathon fans feel the same, as it was eight years ago on this day, March 17, 1995, Steve Israelson made the first-ever Marathon map editor, Pfhorte, available for download via AMUG. Thus, the cult of serious Bungie game modding was born!

Macintosh oriented Bungie fans may be interested to note that Steve has had a major role in other interesting Mac projects, including the Mac port of Command and Conquer and LiveStage by Totally Hip.

Thanks for all your dedicated work, Steve.
