MAP24: The Gift From GOTT is the twenty-fourth map of Kama Sutra. It was designed by Jakub Razák and uses the music track "The Unforgiven" by Metallica, sequenced to MIDI.

Inspiration and development[edit]

Adolf Vojta's comments from the text file:

Method's first map including some mixed features. He made the map you have to play cautiously and when you don't have guns or enough ammo (like at the start) you just have to find another strategy to mop up all monsters because you don't have a chance to run away to some safe place. Because there is no safe place prepared for you. It's not so common in KS.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the starting area, drop down to the water to your left (west). Go north, until you reach the hole next to the first building. Drop down that hole, and at the bottom of it, you will find a super shotgun, a backpack, two boxes of shotgun shells, a box of rockets, and a teleporter that will bring you back to the starting area. (sector 12)
  2. After you finally enter the first building, you will notice two windows with acid behind them near the steps. You can use these steps to enter both windows. The western one has a rocket launcher. (sector 60)
  3. While the eastern window has a box of rockets. (sector 62)
  4. In the room with the switch that lowers two bars blocking access to the hub area, you can press on the bookshelf behind the chair. The top of the bookshelf is actually a teleporter that will take you to the dark room with a soulsphere inside. (sector 49)
  5. In the southern library, in the western part of the map, you might notice a hole in a southern wall with a face inside, right next to the bookshelf. Shoot this face, and the passage will open nearby. Jump in there from the top of the chair, and press the eastern wall to find a BFG9000 and two energy cell packs. (sector 201)
  6. While being in the area with the switch that allows access to the blue key, look northeast to spot a gargoyle face on the wall. Shoot that face, and return to the corridor (it's the one near Secret #5). Go south, and you will find another soulsphere near the torch. (sector 196)
