Hello. This is not an April Fools joke. What you have here is a coordinated effort by seven insane individuals to provide MrWolfForever with the best maps possible and/or imaginable. He's got seven maps to pick the winner from, and in the meantime, you're free to enjoy the release yourselves. Now, to let the readme speak for itself...

Great effort, everyone! This was a lot of fun. Each level feels unique from one to the next. If I were MrWolfForever I would have a tough time picking the winner. :shock:

7 narrowly takes my crown overall, 6 was a pretty good showing for Thomas if it was his map (feels like it, and I felt floor code wise there was only one missed opportunity), and 2 was pretty nicely quirky.

Sometimes with Thomas I'm thinking perhaps playing one map versus 10 or 30 in a row hits kind of differently...nearly all his levels DO have elements to appreciate.

I had Thomas guessed right! He put down a good one for sure, as aside from some areas combining Officers and Mutants (but it wasn't the only level to do so) the only thing I'd have changed is making the white brick hall bordering the silver key hallway have the same floor code as the silver key hallway itself.

The use of purple slime as a 'regular' texture is something I also have mixed feelings over, but gerolf did it too and ended up my favorite, as did Atina to an extent, so it gets a pass even though I think the brick from SoD is a much better purple wall to suit that color 'standard' areas (not full of mutants and not secret areas or levels).

The set was a spontaneous idea and had a 1 week time limit.

I can't speak for everyone but i don't think any author finds their map to be the best work ever. Nexion hates his maps anyways and this one is fairly normal. Mine lacked more time to polish.

Here is the theme song:


It didn't go exactly like this... but imagine a similar production studio and MrWolfForever (Francis) as the red dude asking for the best song map. The battle was almost lost but Gerolf saved mankind as the last entry.

For what it´s worth, I enjoyed making my map. I hope it´s not the last spontaneous thing to come from this community. Or maybe I should get around to starting a speedmapping event finaly...
