Cold Cathode

Quake Live
with Tom Perryman

Cold Cathode is a collaborative project I've worked on with Tom "Phantazm11" Perryman. The map was contracted by id software for the release with the QuakeLive Premium Pack #15 in December 2012. The map deploys a snowy winter theme backed up by fluorescent light tubes indicating the base colors in Capture The Flag games. My tasks during the making of the level were mostly gameplay related. I developed the initial layout and send it back and forth with phantazm11 until we were happy with it. Afterwards Phantazm11 came up with most of the visuals and I did cleanup and technical optimization. Eventually, when the map got included with QuakeLive Adam 'SyncError' Pyle (QL associate producer) made some final gameplay tweaks to improve the map's flow.
