Back before Halo was the biggest title on Microsoft’s Xbox, it was actually planned as a Mac title. That’s because Bungie, the game’s developer, was actually a Mac game company — they made a number of really terrific shooters for the Mac, including Marathon (which has since been released on iOS along with its sequels). But the company’s first game was Pathways into Darkness, and now, 20 years after its release in 1993, Bungie’s first title has come in a free version to the Mac App Store.

The game’s been “painstakingly recreated” by Bruce Morrison, a former employee from Ngmoco and Freeverse, for his company, Man Up Time Studios, and features the classic award-winning first-person adventure gameplay that started earning Bungie its reputation back in the day. It’s great to have this classic game back on the Mac, and it’s even better to get to play and download it for free.
