Rat’s nest is a single-player map for Half-Life 2, built and polished over a four month time period. The map continues off of my previous Half-Life 2 map, Down the Drain. This map focuses on non-confrontational combat, allowing the player to defend against Combine forces without actually engaging in direct combat.
This is accomplished in two ways, with two new mechanics. The first of these is a warehouse with a gantry crane (using the magnet), where the player must fend off increasing waves of combine forces. The second is a rail-based water section, with an NPC piloting the boat and the player manning a rocket turret. While the player is rarely any any true danger, the events occurring during the level give a sense of urgency and potential danger, urging the player to action.
