As the name suggests, the 50-hour maping challenge last 50 hours.
In general, the themes are very open in order to allow modders the chance to experiment with ideas.
Most maps are quite short.
Do not expect normal gameplay styles.
Often, mappers get too ambitious and never release the map they started working on.
With the 50-Hour deadline, I hoped that mappers would simply select a simple idea and build it.
Your task is to create a perfectly cromulent map.
Is your map silly? Absurd? Weird? Hilarious, crazy, or a complete joke? Great! These are all cromulent maps and they’re exactly what we’re looking for.
Use this opportunity to embiggen your creativity.
If your map leaves players saying, “WTF did I just play?” – perfect!
Make players laugh, make them cry – but make them FEEL something. You have 50 hours!

0.9 – Developers’ Version. First versions of maps. Internal Alpha version
1.0 – First public release. Contains a few updated maps (see below), two background images and two Steam Gridview images.
1.1 – Update map for BrodyQuest and fixed sound issue for the same map.
G-Mare: “Players with older computers may experience minor frame rate issues at points as I was unable to properly optimise due to time constraints. Sorry!”
Subarctic “Adventure: set in a subarctic location, the player has to fight a number of sometimes unexpected enemies.”
Nevrin54: “Laser puzzle may be a bit buggy, sorry this was very rushed since I was on a road trip half of the time I had to map this. Have fun!”
Manor of PTSD: “Credit to Reepblue for OldPunt textures + sound. I HIGHLY suggest playing with Vsync on as the lighting might cause annoying flickering in this map without (Unsure for others) Map uses content I had permission from creator to use + self made content. The map is based on a dream I had + weird random stuff mixed in. Thanks and have fun.”
Embiggened: “The van model was created by Tiop for my AnyVilleVille entry, the Last Commute. It was made using Propper.”
MANOR OF PTSD:
-fixes possible crash when opening door to the bathroom + door closing behind you.
-Fixed dying when falling down the hallway.
-Fixed some some texture problems, all that is missing is the RTSL graffiti required in the final version.
– Can no longer get door to the gnome bathroom stuck open.
– Expanded area of dream teleport trigger and relocated containment brush to bedroom door so the player can no longer move out of the trigger.
– Some small changes to text displays (Added credit and removed gnome bathroom’s “Uh…”)
I removed the game breaking bugs I knew of and fixed lighting issues on props.
COME SOME TOAST:
-tracktrain being usable by player
-being able to lose the can so you can’t finish the level
– Fixed sound issues
