My name is Tomi Uurainen and i like to do maps for games. I have done multiple levels for multiple games such as Counter-Strike Source, Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. I'm familiar with Source engine. Haven't been able to stop since i started. This is something that i like to do but I still have my regular day job that doesn't include making stuff like this at all.

Back in 2008, I put myself into work of learning Hammer, level editor. I had tried briefly previously but it seemed too hard. I had extra time on my hands due to cancer recovery so i started learning Hammer. I had set my mind on it and i was going to do it.

In the summer 2008, i finished my first "real" level after lengthy period of banging head to a wall and countless of disasters before that. Infact there were lots of levels but they never saw the light of the day. Soon, i created another level and that's how i got the curve going on. I'm not an artist, but i can do levels with the content i have in my use.


Team Fortress 2 - Scream Fortress 7

My greatest achievement in making levels so far is when Valve selected my map Hellstone, aka pl_millstone_event into their Team Fortress 2 halloween special update 2015. I cannot describe in words on how good it felt to get something you made in a game, after making levels for such a long time.

Another great moment for me was at Halloween 2016, when Valve honored me again by adding another halloween map by me to the game, Brimstone (pl_fifthcurve_event). For this, i am very happy and honored too!

I do not have so much free time to do this stuff today as i used to have but i am still actively mapping. However, i would like to do something related to level design instead of the work that i do now. That's pretty much the story for me.

I play games to relax and run a community, Pelipurkki.fi, that is tied to my levels since i tend to test them and run them on the servers in advance before releasing. Get in touch if you have an idea that i could help out with or project that i could take part with, i'm all ears!

Check out the levels i've done from Levels.
