    Not sure about the name, but the map is pretty good. I didn’t find either of the Easter Eggs, but I suspect one of them is to do with those black and yellow boxes on the vents.

    Anyway, there’s plenty of vent crawling and some back tracking but all in all a great piece of work.

    I would say that it could have done with more enemies and action but still was fun.

    Well worth your time, although it’s not particularly long.

    1. Anon_254581

      excuse me but how the helll I play this? I am stuck in vent I go all the possible direction.

      I tried tu jump on the vent but I die 10000000 times…

      please help!!

      1. Solution below. Good luck.

        [spoiler]Assuming you have the crowbar, go back to the room you started in and go up the angled vent. Smash the electrical box near the spinning fan.[/spoiler]

      About the easter’s I think one is in one of the bathrooms, is a chuamtoad trapped on the toilet, and I tried to look the 2nd but I didn’t succed

      1. Did you find a way to open the door or did you noclip?

  2. Wesp5

    You need to climb into the other side of the vent in the first room at the beginning. Overall a great little map with a lot of crawling around and wondering what to do. Once again much too dark in a lot of places on my system or is there something wrong with my monitor? Also there are two locations where I got reproducable stuck several times, on the car and in the service elevator. Does nobody ever playtest their maps for such issues anymore?

  3. Maybe?

    Found this map to be really dark and you don’t get an HEV suit so it is difficult to play sans flashlight

  4. Think Twice

    Didn’t enjoy it as much as I’d liked. Good mapping and atmosphere but the long drawn-out vent crawling, backtracking and generally boring and uninspired combat drags it down significantly. You never acquire the HEV either so you can’t use the flashlight and there are a few areas that would’ve been much easier if you’d had the chance to lit it up.

    As said, the combat was boring as there are no enemies except a few headcrabs and zombies. The only way to deal with them is with the use of the crowbar; you don’t get any other weapon except this which makes the experience awfully dull.

    I am after elevator in the room with Security Door and the Red Blasd Door.

    None of them are opening….

    What to do??

    :((

    1. [spoiler]See the maintenance access switch through the window? To get there, you need to crawl through a vent in the elevator shaft between the floors (not the vent you were in earlier).

      The quickest way is to take the elevator up, then be crouched against the wall when it goes down. You may need to make a dry run first to break the cover.[/spoiler]

    ok thanks ..it is very strange this mod indeed..

    yes also I was stuck in the elevators….

    hmm..

    pretty….. uninspired….

  7. Maybe?

    Usually I do a “Pros and Cons” list with a “Overall” at the end. The problem with this map is that it’s not bad nor is it good so a “Pros and Cons” wouldn’t help. You can get past the map with no noclip(save for a ladder problem at the maintenance switch). It’s just tedious. A lot of backtracking and wondering “What do I do next?”.

    So “Maybe?” is my recommendation.

    i liked this, because it was old school style, so u have to look carefully manny assets in order to continue your escape, I like this map because is simple the goal is to escape outta there and kill few zombies so don’t expect so much action on this one, but u can expect some well distributed map!

  9. Duke

    I enjoyed this one..short but sweet, and for once I didn’t get stuck !

  10. Maybe?

    The only good things in this lil map are the architecture, the exciting and silent atmosphere and guessing what to do where next lol

    There’s no HEV and I only could find a key and keycard but couldn’t find a place where to use the card so I thought it’s unfinished (yeah, haven’t read other reviews first) so I noclipped around the map and tried several things, also looking for the eastereggs but couldn’t find any, maybe the sign on the toilet is one hehe.
    However it’s a puzzle-only map with a strange feeling just like waking up somewhere were you’ve never been before hehe
    The lighting is very good altho maybe a bit too dark at the start because of lacking a flashlight.

    Pro’s:
    -Somehow intense atmosphere
    -Puzzles
    -Quite nice level architecture altho much shaft crawling, sweet lighting

    Con’s:
    -Only puzzles, no real combats
    -No HEV (also not much enemies) so this is okay here, just mentioning no HEV
    -A bit too dark but playable
    -Short
    -Too much shaft crawling

    Here we have kind of an odd map. It’s clear the author has talent as there are some decent puzzles and some really attractive areas in the map, and the overall layout is pretty intricate especially for a single map.

    First note: there is a way to get all the way through this map, to escape whatever facility you’re in. Just keep looking is my advice. Second note: be prepared to to a fuckton of vent crawling, and it’ll all be in the dark because for some reason no HEV is provided and thus you don’t have a flashlight. Third note: there’s not much combat, and I only ever found the crowbar so it’s not like you have a lot of options.

    The thing that shines about this map is the look. The author used a lot of custom textures and custom models, and the map looks really good. Combine good architecture, good lighting, and some custom assets like I mentioned and it’s usually a good mix.

    Unfortunately the gameplay is what ultimately sinks this map. You can puzzle things out by searching everywhere but overall it’s pretty boring. Perhaps worth a look, though.

    I never thought I would say PIN for this map. It was quite a surprise.

    Apart from some issues, like the vent-crawling and the fact that there’s only the crowbar, I had a lot of fun with this map. I liked the level design a lot, but I couldn’t find any of the easter eggs. Also, the puzzles were great and I thought the layout was really good too.

    Overall, you should definitely play this mod. It’s a really fun little map that’s worth your 5 minutes.
