I took my first steps into game development by creating custom maps and gamemodes for Source Engine games and sharing them on the Steam Workshop. Today my creations have over 10.000.000 downloads and were features in many well known gaming magazines, like PC Gamer, Rock-Paper-Shotgun & UploadVR.
Half Life Alyx
Jedi Alyx – Lightsaber Training
This mod adds lightsabers to Half Life Alyx, a VR game that didn’t feature melee weapons. Today its one of the most downloaded entries and was featured in some of the major gaming news sites.
Counter Strike – Global Offensive
Fast Aim & Reflex Training
Map to improve aim and reflexes degined for competitive CSGO players. One of the most downloaded maps in the Workshop. Used by many Esport professionals for warmup & training. Player spawns on a small island and unarmed bots run towards them. The player tries to eliminate them before they reach the gap.
Custom asymmetrical multiplayer game mode.
4 players hide in a cornfield while another player has to find them with a tractor before dawn.
The clue: the field is dynamic. Players leave a trail of trampled corn behind them, while the tractor shrinks the cornfield by harvesting the crops. The game gets harder and more thrilling, the longer the round runs.
Inception’s Bent City
In the Source Engine you can walk up slopes up to 45°. I used this to create the illusion of being able to walk on walls, by placing two 45° tilted planes mirrored to each other. This map represents a city, bent in the middle. Inspired by a scene from “Inception”.
This maps also functions as a defuse map (gamemode in CS:GO).
