Sewers: Map Build

photoguyOver the last couple of days I managed to put in some hardcore mapwork on an area simply titled The Sewers. This is one of the last areas in the game, and is part of the final gauntlet that players must traverse to reach the end boss.

As mentioned in an earlier post, I really wanted to make the sewers more ominous and expansive than they were in the original game. I tried to accomplish this by darkening the palette, and making the the tunnels less regular; with fewer parallel lines and more diagonal progression.

I hope these changes have created a more foreboding atmosphere!


As a sidenote, I don’t know what #@&%ing song is playing in the background of this video. It was originally supposed to be Desperado by Me First And The Gimme Gimmes, but it got flagged down by YouTube. So enjoy this random tune and look forward to another blog update soon. THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS!
