Description             : This is the two maps I submitted to DAC2009. MAP01 is a little filler type map with an interesting survival twist on gameplay, and MAP02 is my original, more christmas-y entry. Both maps offer a challenge in their own way and are made to old-school specifications. I decided to spruce them up a little with ZDoom and just make it play oldschool, much like The Mouth of Death in that respect. There's no story obviously and the maps are only vaguely connected but they play together nicely and MAP02 is not too different from a pistol-start. Music is from XMas Doom2 again for MAP01 and the credits screen. Also included in this text file is some extra info on each map, as a throwback to a grander idea that went with time.

*Map Specific Info*

Map#: MAP01
Name: Breaking Loose
Build Time: 6 hours
Difficulty: Medium
Description: A short, simple map that focuses on a mixture of tight quarters and limited weaponary to make meager opposition a surprising challenge. UV can be quite lethal at the very start and in the chainsaw room. Might make a fair DM map, probably a little too tight in co-op however.
Par Time: 0:17 (UV Speed)

Map#: MAP02
Name: The Slough of Merriment
Build Time: 3 hours
Difficulty: Hard
Description: The submission for DAC 2009 from me, and the reason I made the rest of this wad. A basic "theme" map, that takes a christmas-y shape and turns it into a playable map (hence the name reference to E3M2). Works as a large-ish progressive arena, particularly with the extra opposition on co-op. DM works quite well here for a few players.
Par Time: 1:10 (UV Speed)
