    A mysterious suicidal cult to an entity known only as "Train God" has been discovered in an abandoned industrial hazardous materials compound. We're not sure what they were doing or why they were doing it, but we do know that we want whatever it is that they have. The dirty hippies have been driven from their homeland and into the desert where they belong. The only thing left to do is decide which team gets to claim the weird hazardous facility as their own.

    Red and Blu have taken part of the compound as their own and it's up to you to stumble your way through the literal death trap of a work environment and capture that point! The hippies were kind of encouraging the last part, but never mind that. Sign this release form...

    I've been working on this map in between Stoneyridge over the past year since the 2012 April Fools Gameday, testing it on the Penny Arcade community server practically weekly. I've had a ton of fun listening to their reactions with each update and I'm excited to finally get to inflict this map on you guys properly. Hope you guys can find some servers to toss it on and have as much fun as we have with it.

    We used to run 3 servers and ironically the only one that survived the community slowing down was our custom map server (House of Non-Conformity.) So we do snag a handful of custom maps now and then to put on there, but we tend to play a lot of regular maps. Just the way the votes end up going.

    Let me be the first to say that the voiceover work is amazing and makes me laugh every time something plays.

    Amazing map.

    Speaking of how badass the voice work is, I intended on posting these too:

    All the voice-over lines that play during the map:

    A gag-reel I put together of the mess-ups, shenanigans and unused lines we got while recording:

    Thanks to [UEAK]Carnage for doing such an awesome job with these. We had a lot of fun recording them, as you can hear in the second clip. That was cut out of almost 2 hours of audio.

    My recording chain was a SM57 microphone (it's what we had around) with a pop filter going into a Xenyx 802 mixer which went into an Audiophile 192 audio card. I recorded and edited/ mixed the clips with Audacity.

    I love that even for people who use fancy recording equipment, Audacity is considered just as good of a recording and editing app as the high-end professional stuff.

    If I'm doing something musically I tend to mix in Fruity Loops but something that doesn't require much post production Audacity is more than enough.

    I like to think of it less as "surviving" as "not having to worry about real-life obligations drawing me away from it."

    At least that's what I tell myself as I cry myself to sleep every night.

    ...

    ...Okay, maybe "surviving" sounds better, in retrospect.

    So uh... Hi everyone!

    This map appears to have taken off a bit.

    Thanks to Sal for the awesome commentary over it that got this out there to a ton of people.
