Tomb of Etheria 1.0

Tomb of Etheria was a map created by myself and Antony O’Sullivan for the Dungeon Defenders mapping contest using the Dungeon Defenders Development Kit (a custom version of UDK). The brief was to create a map that supports up to 6 players for the standard game type. We spent about a month working on the map and after judging from the community and developers we were awarded 3rd place out of 16 entrants. We received some great reviews from the community members and also the developers. We also had a few criticisms which we took on board and changed in the updated version. The map consists of almost all custom content and also delivered some unique features not previously seen in other maps. The map is currently being redesigned to be added officially to the game for CDT – Update 4.
