General[edit]

Gameplay[edit]

Calamity is split into two distinct sections. The player spawns in an abandoned house where they are able to enter the first maze: a three block wide trek around ruined city walls to find a door, as well as how to open it. This maze is the easiest section in the map, as well as the least time consuming.

The second section of the map is made up of tall skyscraper-esque buildings and smaller hedge mazes encompassing the outside of the map. This section, being as massive as it is, takes a long time to complete. However, the path is somewhat straightforward, lowering the difficulty by a small margin.

One the player completes the map, they are able to click the end sign, or set an optional checkpoint allowing them to explore the map from a new perspective.

Aesthetics[edit]

The entire map is located above bedrock level in the nether. It mainly uses a gray and green palette, with both shades of nether brick thrown in for extra variety. The main textures used are stone variants, notably stone brick.

The interiors of the buildings are all meant to appear unique. No two rooms have the same detail and design, adding to the complexity of the map's aesthetics.

Challenges[edit]

This map is featured in 2 challenges: Intermediate Maze Pack and Hexa.

Trivia[edit]

  • Calamity's mechanic of allowing the player to explore after beating the map was inspired by Ember Island, a map by AverageIPA.
  • Calamity is Bird_Obsession's first and only map currently in FFA+.
