This plays like a 1996 beginner map, with creative ideas and eccentric charm but very crude construction. The author mentioned on func that he built this without any prior experience mapping and leaned how to use a map editor in the process, so the crudeness is understandable. One exception to the map’s beginner feel is the secrets, which are actually quite subtle and clever.

When played, it very obviously feels like a map from the days of Quake yore and it comes equipped with a built in story that is told through text pops on screen. I thought this was a cool approach to telling a story. The biggest issue with the map is how linear it is. It seems virtually impossible ot get lost as you’re basially following a long hallway from start to end. While this doesn’t bother me as much as others, I do like a bit more exploration in or at least the illusion of it. Nice job though, looking forward to the next one!
