EscapeVille – Hammer Cup 2022 Challenge 3 Announcement (w/ Map Labs)

12th May 2022

The third and final challenge in the Hammer Cup 2022 kicks off now with another brand new Ville theme!

EscapeVille was also a never-used idea back in the original Hammer Cup days. DiamondDogsVille was kind of along the same line but it’s definitely one of the lesser-known challenges from back in the day. I’m happy to have Map Labs bring back these unused themes for their challenges!

This challenge is a Test Tube, so it only runs for 10 days. Get mapping!

Bonus maps (which can’t win but are judged and scored) are accepted for 4 days after the normal due date. Note that bonus map entries are not eligible for The Hammer Cup prizes!

Theme Details

Simple: the player must escape something, using force, wits, stealth – anything!

Here’s the official announcement (click for full version):

And if you’re not already there, join the Map Labs Discord for good discussion & a great mapping community.


The deadline for submission is Monday 23rd May 2022. Bonus maps are accepted for another 4 days after that.

    So where is it?

    1. Indeed. It’s been 2 months since the cut-off date. Where could it be hiding?

    2. We hope there will be a change soon, because nothing has been happening on this site for 2 months. 🙁

    3. I really appreciate this site and all the hard work that modders and admin do to support it.
      But, can we have a brief update on the status of the final Hammer Cup Challenge? Basically, like there were X entries and can expect a release in X (days, months, years). Hope that admin is just busy with other adventures and not anything worse. Again, thanks for all you do.

  3. Hopefully it isn’t too far off now- I’m eager to hear about the cup winners

    It is my understanding that they are just finishing up bug fixes now and will be judging it soon. So I would expect to see it at least fairly soonish
