ThinkingWithPortals 'Towering' Mapping Competition
:p2blue: The Theme[cdn.discordapp.com] :p2orange:

"TOWERING"
The theme for this competition is "towering".
You may interpret this however you’d like, whether it be visuals-
focused, puzzle-focused, or some combination thereof. It doesn’t
even have to be set in Aperture if you want! However, your map
should plainly communicate some aspect of the theme.

Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 scorers:
- 1st place, $50 Steam gift card
- 2nd place, $25 Steam gift card
- 3rd place, $10 Steam gift card

Rules/FAQ
Can others help in making the map/puzzle?
No. The map should be made by you and you alone. That said, others can help by making other assets like models, sounds, textures, etc.

Can my map be co-op?
Yep! Just keep in mind that it may require more work.

Can my map use custom assets?
Sure! Assets should be packed into the BSP. If you exceed the 100MB Workshop limit or need to include unpackable files like soundscripts/particle systems, include custom assets in a .zip file in the description.

Does the map have to be original/new?
Yes. The map should be made specifically for the competition. You may use instances or prefabs from other maps, but it should otherwise be original.

Can I use PTI/puzzlemaker?
For this competition, yes! Keep in mind that if you choose to use puzzlemaker, it may be judged more critically in the "visuals" section, and your originality score will have to come purely from your puzzle!

How do I submit my map?
All submissions will be sent through Google forms. The link to this will be available closer to the due date. Follow the announcements on the TWP Discord channel[forums.thinking.withportals.com] for further updates.

If you have any questions regarding the theme/rules, ask!

SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE DECEMBER 29, 2019 - Good luck! :p2cube:

Spent 9 months learning Hammer and revising this. Special scripts make some turrets still standing after 1 minute self-destruct. Hope you like it.
