Well it wasn't going to have a slime pit in the middle originally. It was going to have a lava or slime tube trap in the middle. But I figured this cut up the central area of the map too much and made the map much less fun so I opened it up. It's weird, I only noticed the similarity to Deck when I nearly finished the map and I didn't want to scrap it so I just did what I could with it.
I think if I do another competition entry for Q2 cafe it will be a real show piece. I'm not a fan of losing.
