This map takes me back to 2010. I always wanted more Xen themed deathmatch maps and there weren't that many out there.
Since I enjoyed hosting a 24/7 server that usually got 6 to 8 people I wanted to make a map to show off some new concepts and to have something fun and interesting for small amounts of players.
This map builds off the idea of human stuff being transported to Xen through teleportation mishaps. The portals visible in the screenshots are representation of the spawn points. Back then I didn't think it caused that much of a visibility issue since the fast paced and small map size made quick 10 minute matches fun and interesting.
The map name was a working title when I made it and I just stuck with it, The original design was supposed to be based on earth and the floating platforms were supposed to be metal grates and ladders connecting them. Xen seemed like a suitable re-skin for the concept.
