Seems like a solid map. The bad dude might be a bit too powerful later. Approved.

Is there an original author before you made this version? If so, please provide permission for editing and uploading. For instance there are some other two authors who don't have HIVE accounts so I don't know who they are.
Also, the concept seems quite similar to Codename: Askellon and others before it. MineralZ had that Vampirism base building stuff.

No, I am the original author. I've been working on it from scratch since 2019. Link (Before Askellon :p)
It is semi open source so I have taken several contributions from community players. It was never officially open source but I was inactive for a while and so several community members were updating it. Recently, TheFace93 has been doing balance, modeling and moderate gameplay tweaks so I took him on as a co-author.

It definitely follows in the footsteps of maps like metastasis and these maps follow the who-dun it murder RPG genre. A lot of inspiration was taken from Parasite (A StarCraft 2 mod).

We have a very active community on discord if you want to pop in for a game or two: Discord

OK. Removed some of the map tags since they are not quite fitting. For instance, Role Playing Game, you expect something like Diablo, a dungeon crawler. Tag/Vampirism, you think of Tree Tag or Vampirism type map, so on.
If you don't think it's OK, you can explain why and put them back.
