This clever Map Labs challenge was a partnership with the great folks at Lambda Generation. Here was the challenge:
Imagine this: Your friend is too lazy to play Half-Life. They tell you that they’d rather experience the games in an abridged form of some kind. A little annoyed, you walk back to your desk and start creating just that.
Take a chapter from any Half-Life game, and make it WAY smaller. That’s the challenge! Half-Life: Abridged.
The challenge recieved a whopping 22 entries and 3 bonus maps! Here they are, enjoy!
As always, if you’re interested in learning more about Map Labs and maybe even participate in their upcoming challenges, visit the Map Labs Discord!
