About This File

So, in the 1st part of this map, the nameless hero (not Doomguy!) got to a teleport, which should have taken him to the rescue ship. But, if it did, there wouldn't be a part 3-7+6, would it? The hero appeared in a _very_ tight room, with a switch in front of him, a locked door behind him, and with a complete mess in his brain. "NO! I DON'T WANT TO SEE THOSE UGLY MONSTERS AGAIN! I JUST WANT MY TEDDY BEAR! NOOOOO!" -- shouts the nameless hero -- "WHY ME?!". After a minute of intense thinking, shouting, screaming and other manifestations of pure fear, he finally said "Hey, this goddamn switch should do something, right?". His next thought was "Hang on, where's my shotgun? I remember having it! This place literally radiates creepiness. I have the feeling that things will be getting even more weird. Let's check it out. Besides, begging for my teddy bear ain't exactly the definition of 'hero', is it?" -------------------------------------------- I'm pretty sure this doubled the amount of text you read this year. Have fun!

I'm pretty sure this doubled the amount of crappy WADs I played this year. Have fun! That was the goal, wasn't it?

      Dear Doomkid,

      I was involved in the design and play-test of each of these levels. Please know these were created from *scratch* and we spent our time making sure the levels were as playable as possible. We were not terribly focused on texturing, other than to give players positional awareness in different parts of each arena.

      Map 6 -- Offices of Death -- Was intentionally designed to be as accurate a representation of the office we worked in as possible. Admittedly, playability was taken as a second priority. We did manage to create working "elevators" and "stairs" to give the illusion you were going up and down floors. I was pretty happy with how we did.

      Considering it was 1996, and no way to simply "Google" different ideas. Your best bet at the time was to jump onto the Usenet and hope you could find a decent board with active members. Other than that, it was pretty much all self-taught.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the other levels. Yes, they are old-school, big arena, style. We spent a LOT of time trying to make sure they were as balanced as possible, with escape routes, and required risks for rewards.

      Excellent stuff for the mid-1990s. Lots of action, good layouts, pretty challenging on UV.    9/10

      For 1995 design is ok. But is VERY short. 3 min in slow pace.  Map is easy af.

      Square rooms, no details, ugly. Secrets aren't flagged as secret. Only for crappy-wad-lovers.

      For 1995, not bad. Some ideas, are really cool, but they're mixed with dumb things. Texture misalignments are common. Overall I had nice time with this.
