NEWEST REWORKED VERSION [June 26] http://www.mediafire.com/?sm9mdxp4x6alcex
CONTEST SUBMISSION: http://www.mediafire.com/?jcptqq77cxzrkft


NOTES: To play the bug free version, download the NEWEST REWORKED VERSION of the map.


This map is currently a 4-6 player map set in a forest like graveyard featuring a massive Mansion that the enemies spawn from. The paths are many and dangerous in these woods. however, this also opens many defence strategies.

With this map, Forgotten Graveyard, I wanted to give players multiple choices for defenses so that every time they play new strategies could be used and discovered.
I wanted to make the map require skill and team work over just choking enemies at the same few points across the map for the entire duration. I achieved this by giving the enemies various avenues of attacking any said crystal, which really adds urgency and frantic gameplay into the mix. Overall I wanted to make the map feel like something new and fresh to the franchise with intuitive gameplay by giving players tons of option to complete the map.

For the theme I chose a graveyard setting because they are my favorite settings for any type of game and I am sure I am not alone on that. A lot of this levels inspiration came from Medievil, a horror themed platformer game for the PS1. I am also a huge survival horror fan with both movies and games. For its location, it is based on the outskirts of Etheria in the mountain region beyond the main castle, where the source of the evil seems to be originating from.

I actually bought DD because it had Halloween content, even though it was basically a re-skin, I loved it. I want to continue its legacy with this level and I hope you guys and the community enjoy my submission!

There are 3 crystals to defend.

I hope you like what you see, my blood and sweat went into this :)

Looks like a nice Halloween-esque map. Perfect for the fall portion of the year. Pathing looks a bit of a nightmare to handle there with so many headstones and the like. Nice work.
