very nice ideas in this map - the central area with the "guardian", and going around it to collect various triggers, feels very gratifying. had a lot of fun playing it :)
Good stuff. A fun spin on original-id-style runic.
The varied little traps and puzzles along the way did a great job of giving a feeling that you were in a hostile place, while still keeping things playable. The opening elevator ride signposts how things are going to be -- if you were expecting a "normal" Quake combat/exploration experience the first reaction is "WHAT IS THIS BULLSHIT" and the second reaction is "Ohhh I see how it is". I love that!
Make more maps my dude.
Oh yeah and custom music is always a pleasure.
Sorry I missed this map when it was released. I know Twitchy posted it to the Quake Mapping Discord but I think I was slammed at work that week.
Just happened upon it today here and noticed you used progs_dump! Really fun runic map with nice atmosphere and some tense combat. I died quite a bit but enjoyed it a lot. I echo Joel's comment about the music. That was a nice bonus!
The central elevator set piece was very cool. Nice work. I hope you make more maps!
