Peril on Mars,
Peril on Mars was one of the early medium sized map packs for Unreal and is considered quite well-known in the Unreal single player community. It was created by Team86 which consisted of Mark Simons, David Münnich, Eric Evans, and Paul Roberts (in order of maps appearing). The map pack originally came out for Unreal on 25th September, 1999, but an improved UT edition soon followed on 6th April, 2000 with improvements on all maps by DavidM. As usual, we would normally make available both for download, but we currently only have the UT version available. We will upload the original release as soon as we get our hands on it. The original pack consisted of five playable maps, and an ending sequence was added to the UT version as a 6th map.
The story takes place on Mars in the early days of human colonization after it was discovered that in the deep valleys of mars the conditions are suitable for sustaining human life. You are a member of the team of one of the first pioneers who explore the valleys, looking for the best place to build a future human base. However, during your search you encounter a strange reptilian creature who attacks and knocks you out. You wake up in a damp cell on the sounds of the screams of your comrades, the smell of rotten flesh filling the air. You have no idea what’s going on, but you know that you don’t want to wait in the cell and see what happens next…
