This is the final version of my first map design ever.. It was designed and developed in UDK over a 9 week period with assets I created in Maya. The design process is thoroughly documented on these pages:
It will also soon appear in an article by Dr. Luke McMillan, who developed the game design course at TwoFour54 Abu Dhabi and who I have had the pleasure of being a student of. I will post a link to that article as soon as it goes live here.
The map is set in an underground trading post on Mars. It is a 6 – 12 player Deathmatch map and basically consists of 6 bays surrounding one large docking bay in the center. The docking bay is open to the surface and players can be vented out into space if they are not careful.
Every 3 minutes an alarm sounds, informing the players that a de-pressurization button has been unlocked in one of the 6 surrounding bays. The first player to press the button will vent all other players into space therefore gaining multiple kills.
