hc1; Quake: implo1t dys3ngage

Konichiwa, welcome to "implo1t dys3ngage", a custom Quake map centered around a Shinto shrine in Japan/Nihon. Compared to and contrasted with previous hexcalk works, hc1 is more difficult with more tight-quarters combat than ever before, though there is an outdoor section with at least 4 knights. It is optimized though, with ammo, weapons, and monsters balanced for progression.

I'm fascinated by the fact that the timing between the hc1beta release and implo1t dys3ngage's debut is less than 12 hours. To make things crazier, this map's release date is my 21st birthday. Happy birthday, me! :p'

Please note that I reuploaded this twice, so I had to ensure it wasn't a beta anymore by correcting issues (namely the message "implo1t dys3ngage beta" became "implo1t dys3ngage" and health (non-megahealth) from the gold key room moved into the area around the pyramid). As a result, the image of hc1 is one taken within the time before and after the first upload and before the second one.

I also have implo1t dys3ngage Extend (hc1extnd), a 3-map compilation of alternative versions of this map.

Bugfixes even exist for hc1 and hc1extnd. The glitch-free versions are in the hc1bugfix patch. The hc1extnd bugfix is the source for the next iteration of hc1: "implo1t dys3ngage Extend Again".

hc1beta; Quake: "implo1t dys3ngage" beta

I think beta-testing is needed for this upcoming level named "implo1t dys3ngage". The Japanese-themed Quake custom map with Daikatana textures (and one ikbaseq3 skybox) is up at Quaketastic.

hc2; Quake: Baneful Politic Comply

Here is "Baneful Politic Comply", my third Quake singleplayer map. It is the result of me learning how to get better at level design. A small area, it is influenced by e1m2 (Castle of the Damned), and features curved walls and spiky ceilings prominently.

song1: "Skecz"

I have recently distributed a chiptune song named "Skecz". It was created using FamiTracker (FT) with the VRC7 audio chip and is my last released material for FT. Since 2016, I moved to (and am still using) Adlib Tracker II. Enjoy the YouTube music video:

neg2betahc: ethycs0fL3gaci

Yes, a single-player version of a scrapped negke deathmatch map named "neg!ke #2" (neg2beta), courtesy of Hexcalk myself. It took less than one week to complete. Initially planned for release after hc2, but due to how so much fun it is the map is out before hc2 (still in development)! =) Not much else to say on this matter.
