The story:

You start as a worker on a fuel line, fixing some pipes, working on some kinks, you know...that type of stuff. The next thing you know, a rival company has hired a small 'faction' of troops to come in and collect the data from the mainframe(s). Your objective is to stop them using whatever means necessary! Even if it means destroying the mainframe! You can't let this data leak!


Choices is a map release four years ago for a contest . It’s a quite short experience (15 minutes ) but fairly enjoyable trough a good mix between new textures (include 2 new weapons) and small well thought puzzles. Gameplay is straight forward and a little too easy less than 10 grunts and one turret but follow in a good way the starting subject (read the txt include) the choice of texture is perfectly fitting and created a real good atmosphere.

In conclusion : Through the fact this release was done for a contest (and so limited in time) the author produce a solid self packed release that is worth the download for a short enjoyment
