The School From Hell
Custom First-Person Shooter Map For Quake
The School From Hell is a custom First-Person shooter map designed for Quake. The level is set in a run down school in the depths of hell, following an outbreak caused by the students. The students have left the school in ruins, causing it to be abandoned forever. The result has been that the floor has started to expose lava, which raises one or two safety concerns for anyone caught trespassing.
The map has a base shape of an L, with two identical areas on either side. The goal with the map was to reflect the architectural design of schools from the early 20th century - Schools which featured a prominent bell tower stationed in between two half's of a school. Both sides of the school are symmetrical in their design, allowing for extremely easy navigation around the level. On the outside is a large open area designed as the 'meeting' space for players, an area where you can easily find enemies to continue the fight.
Overall, the map is designed to be easily navigable encouraging more fights between players, and features a layout which allows for players to utilise multiple routes to gain an advantage over their enemies.
