Project: Kate

About This File

Kaitlyn Anne Fox was my best friend. Now she's gone. Her sudden departure has punched a hole in my soul. The community has lost a beautiful imagination and an undeniable talent.

During the course of the five years that I came to know her personally, I made maps for her birthday on two occasions - these are the first two maps in this set. The third map was made after her passing. An outpouring of emotion went into this map's creation, and it may be a bit "heavy", for want of a better word, especially for those who were at all close to her. Just a warning there, I guess.

Rest in peace, my sweet Kate. I already miss you like nothing else. I loved you. I still do. I love you so fucking much.

I played this - it's obvious there is a lot of time and energy and investment into this. I cried while playing it, even not knowing Kate as well as I wish I did.

 

It's a tragic thing what happened to Kate and it shouldn't have happened. It's a beautiful tribute to her and I am sure she would be happy about it were she still around.

Like others, I wasn't fortunate enough to have crossed paths with Kate. Curiosity made me try this little project and I cannot express enough what an immensely beautiful tribute this project really is. I'm sorry for everyone's loss, and to Jimmy - that was a beautiful letter to Kate in the secret area.

 

Rest in peace Kate.

A wonderful tribute to an equally wonderful person.

I really love the usage of colors in these maps. All the different purples, pinks and blues manage to evoke a real Eastery feeling. At least for me, anyway. The musical selections also really compliment the visual designs. 

 

First two maps are good, clean demon slaughtering. Everything works excellently and is finely tuned. But I have to be honest, the third map just wasn't my bag. I get that its design quirks are fully intentional, but the challenges presented by said quirks simply weren't to my enjoyment. I also found the ending to be a bit unexpectedly dark. 

 

As an intensely personal passion project, I don't think any numerical score could do something like this proper justice. I can't even imagine just how much emotion you went through making these maps, but it really shows. You've got a big heart, Jimmy, and we all benefit from having you here. I'll keep your friend's spirit in my thoughts tonight.

      Totally not biased giving this review or anything... :D

      A set of compact, sub-100 monster maps that create challenge through a combination of devious enemy placement and instances of highly unforgiving architecture - in some respects, this is reminiscent of a highly compressed version of Sunder.

      Did I miss something here from the players that gave this wad a 4 (and above) rating? The maps were too short, too linear, very bland and very easy. The music was horrible on most maps. With the exception of the elevators, I absolutely hated the new sounds. Finally, the soldier face was a bit much.   I did the first 6 maps in roughly 30 mins. - and that included looking for the secrets (which slapped you in the face at most times). I got to Map 14 before I just gave it up out of sheer boredom. I just couldn't see it getting better.   Sorry, IMHO, the play for Operation: BIOWAR just wasn't fun for me, even on UV.
