MAP23: A Little Big Massacre is the twenty-third map of Kama Sutra. It was designed by Adolf Vojta and uses the music track "Fred" by Kevin Schilder, originally from Heretic, which plays at a slower tempo than normal for unknown reasons. It is a remake of E1M4: The Guard Tower from Heretic, made using Doom textures and inhabited with several hundreds of strong monsters. In addition, this time the map's namesake (the tower) is nowhere to be found.

Inspiration and development[edit]

Adolf Vojta's comments from the text file:

Everytime I played the first part of Heretic E1M4 I thought it could be a good typical monsters crowded map for doom. So this map is a remake. The gameplay I focused on many monsters they could randomly roaming through the buildings so it could be hard to catch all monsters without sound. That means this map could be played in many ways.
I remember when I completed it and let Method to play it I surely expected he will quickly die at the yellow key, there are 5 cybies followed by 80 revenants. He killed them all on the first try and said "..average fight". OMG what more do I have to add to kill him finally? :)
