This map is a “level design test” created by the author as a portfolio piece with the hopes of landing a job as a designer in the game industry. It must have worked, Cayle went on to work at a number of game studios including Valve Software itself for a number of years. Don’t believe me? Go check out the Portal 2 credits! I’ll wait.
From the readme:
For this level design test I created all except 2 of the textures (approx 100 in all), a custom skybox, looped and blended 3 ambient sounds, created and textured 11 custom models with 1 new weapon and a new seagull creature, created special “z axis” locked sprites and weapon selection sprites and most importantly did all of the brushwork.
