Spectrum is a stylised Unreal Tournament 3 mod originally built for a level design module at university.
Set in complete darkness, players light the ground beneath them leaving a trail of colour as they move. It’s designed to subvert traditional first-person-shooter play-styles by forcing players to use sound, other players and items for navigation.
After continuing to work on it post-submission DM_Spectrum went on to receive honourable mentions in phase 4 of Epic’s Make Something Unreal Best FPS Mod & Best Level categories (2009).
