A playable map that is part of Robert Gee‘s thesis project enbtitled The Right Way is the Wrong Way: Dead-End Theory in Level Design, which explores dead ends in games. I briefly referenced the work in another of Roberty’s levels called Dead-end Freeman: Reload.
“My thesis project, completed at the Guildhall at SMU, examined the application and use of dead-ends for practical level design. Additionally it looked at several reward systems associated with dead-end areas and the effectiveness at different level design techniques to lead players into certain areas. This thesis includes a test level created using the Hammer editor in Half-Life 2: Episode 2. The choice of this editor was due primarily to its frequent use in other non-related projects and the large amount of online and offline support provided for troubleshooting.”
