Competition 13 - Map Something Unique

Competitions > View Original Brief

Special Mention goes psycosquirrel for an absolutely crazy and quite well-done map.

The Results

trophy map pic Somewhere, by Kasperg

download

It's very rare that a map will come along that you just want to keep on playing for more than graphical prowess: Kasperg's map is one of those maps. Combining a fantasic surreal world with a slew of jokes and sly references, Kasperg has produced a map that just begs to be played further, which would be my only critiscm ? it stops far too soon!

trophy map pic Island Bombing, by Trapt

download

Despite the fact that Trapt has taken the stock-standard "Grunts VS Gordon" tactic, he has crafted a unique and very detailed arena for it. The island is exquisitely done with a definite sense of the tropical atmosphere which he was aiming for. Unfortunately, lag was a consistent enemy as well as the rather belated ending.

trophy map pic Engineering Mankind, by doodle

download

Once again, doodle has demonstrated his continually advancing skills in the mapping world with his "surreal story" submission, which combined some interesting mapping techniques and vistas (including a lovely cow inspired by a model he constructed in MAX) with a neat story. Well done.
