Dehnaria is a quick multiplayer CTF map I created back in 2010 using Unreal. Players find themselves housed within an old abandoned settlement on the distant planet of Dehnaria.

Personal Project: Indecision, a SP Titan Quest map


Indecision tells the story of a wizard's bitter apprentice turned satyr by a spell gone awry. He was teased mercilessly and thus vowed revenge. He returned to seek his revenge by turning all the citizens into monsters as he himself appeared. Chaos ensued in the town. The quest begins with the lord of the province begging you for assistance in taking back his castle from the dreaded monsters. Multiple quest paths and decisions allow for various endings and rewards. Original paper design can be found here.
