    Let’s face it, HLSP maps are difficult to pull off well. Blending story, level design, gameplay, etc, into a well-concocted mix eludes all but the most accomplished mappers, it seems.

Enter The Cupboard of Doom, exit normal HLSP.

    In place of a story is just a basic premise that bodes well for such a simple map – a virtual nightmare of sorts. Based on the design goal and this premise, gameplay is straightforward – simply to survive the traps, the small snark-like enemies, and hopefully the “nightmare.”
