Plucked from Reality, this pile of floating objects will forever be your battlegrounds.

This map has been made with only 20 brushes! (a Mapping Jam Entry)
A great deal of thought, process and testing has been made towards a having good gameplay. The map's design includes:
  • A layout with a good amount of verticality to it that discourages camping.
  • Asymmetrical Design.
  • Complex at first glance but easy to learn.
  • Lots of pitfalls, a real test of your mastery of movement.
  • Close to Medium range Combat with suitable weapons.
  • Multiple Weapon Pickups are present so you never get into a fight with only a Glock.
  • Hand-placed items and equipment.
  • Strong Weapon pickups are placed in rather exposed areas giving a high risk high reward scenario.
  • Good visibility.
  • No Garbage or Unfit weapon pickups like Hivehand or Hand Grenades.
  • Fully playtested.
  • Suitable for 2-6 players (6 being chaotic).
This map was created for a map Jam where we were only allowed to use 20 brushes. While working on this map I had limited time so there wasn't much time to work on the visuals. Still, the textures have been hand-picked to allow for good visibility.
There's a great level of verticality which really elevates the gameplay (pun intended).
The Layout can be memorized in the first few minutes and after that it's just a really fun competitive map! If you ever wanna 1v1 someone, this is the map for you.

Present weapons are the Shotgun, MP5/M4, 357, Crossbow, RPG, Gauss Cannon and Trip Mines.

Master your Movement!
Playtested at High Levels of play to ensure a great design.
Being on the bottom does not mean death!

Hope you have a good time playing this!

Dedicated to my good friend, Raven the Unbound who passed away a few months after helping me test this level. May he rest in peace,
