Automated enemies never get tired, never get scared and never doubt themselves.
You face three different scenarios where your only adversaries are automated enemies.
They require a different approach to live enemies; patience and thoughtfulness. Running and Gunning most likely won’t work.
Good Luck, you’re gonna need it.
For this challenge, I want you to create a map that ONLY* includes automated enemies.
The key is to create a map where the player feels that they are being drawn into an area, perhaps seemingly deserted, that constantly challenges their skill and planning.
I am NOT looking for Portal-style rooms where the play must simply escape.
It is important to create a map where the automated weapons feel naturally located and used.
I fully understand that some would seem to require Combine architecture or setting, but I also feel that with a little imagination they could be included in almost any setting. Even something like a forest setting could use floor turrets to guard a secret lab or base.
The Overwatch Nexus is a good example of the type of map I would love to play.
* You can use other enemies in the map BUT the player MUST NOT be able to interact with them directly. For example, you could see headcrabs or zombies in an area where they can’t attack you, same for Combine soldiers. They could be seen running through a building, but again, they must not be able to attack you.
I actually feel that the real challenge of this theme will be to create an interesting and active finale.
