I suppose this should have been part of the Releases of the Year 2014 but it’s too late now, so I might as well use it as a poll question.
Looking at each year’s mapping challenging it’s possible that this year was one of the strongest in terms of average quality.
Just in case you have forgotten them, I have added the excerpts below.
At the bottom is the voting area – go vote!
An underground base, a school, a prison, a station, a house and a testing facility.
All with a dark secret…..
Will you survive?
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.
That blue laser and the special sound the sniper rifle makes is enough to make me cringe.
I know that I have to tread very carefully and one false move may mean my instant death.
In this mod, you test your skill in 3 very different maps.
Two weapons and two types of enemies. That’s it!
What interesting combinations could be created?
By limiting those two aspects of a map, it was hoped that mappers would look for unusual combinations of weapons and enemies and also force the player to think creatively.
For this competition, entrants had to create an area from which the player must escape.
This “Escape” is most probably accomplished through the solving of some puzzle and/or combat.
The area can be a room, a series of rooms or even outside. The concept is that the player must find a way to move outside of the area.
I was hoping for some clever puzzles, hopefully environmental in nature and not some obscure and impossible to solve button pressing sequence.
This mod contains 3 official entries, one extra entry and a bonus map made over a longer time period.
Eight maps, all set in Ravenholm, with one simple objective: Escape.
Look out for traps, hiding places, and anything else that can save your neck.
Each map offers something different and fresh, so make sure you take your time and enjoy the screams!
AssassinateVille contains 5 maps where you must eliminate one particular person.
Each map is set in very different environments and situations.
All require you to escape after the assassination, with some easier than others.
