About this map »

I enjoyed Painkiller game and played all custom maps I could find.
Further search led me to “Map Exchange” forum of site, where
people post maps which others can use as bases of their levels. That’s where
I found great map Ghost Town with excellent architecture and amazing atmosphere.

The author started to design gameplay, but unfortunately, he never finished it.
I liked this map so much that I decided to design the gameplay myself to finally
let players properly experience this location, not just walk and look around.

Map Story »

Written by Miling, originally posted here:

It’s a small old town, once it was damned together with everyone who lived there.
Of course, it has church with another twisted religion and huge hospital with
ill doctors. Sometimes the town appears in the fog, and travellers who lost
their way suddenly find themselves inside its walls and find out how much
locals don’t like outlanders, because for them living person is the same
as undead for the living.

Known Bug »

The sound may start to glitch at one point. If that happens,
save the game, quit Painkiller then launch it again and load your save.

If you know how to fix this bug, contact me and tell what to do. When I have the time,
I’ll do it and update the level.

grand finale that it apparently lacked:
