A very sprawling and elegant build. Usually bunkers, considering they are used at the end of the world, look dirty or whatever, however this one looked like a place I’d want to live in! The nice orange highlights really completed the build and made the different accents pop. I also loved the incorporation of green in some spots. That second colour really helped tie the build together.

Great job!

Well, when I mentioned we usually expect bunkers at the end of the world, I didn’t mean this….

I really loved your descent into the bunker and being able to hear the zombies below. Really made my skin crawl hearing them. And, you went for the overgrown/abandoned theme, and I think you completely nailed it. All of the plants coming up from the floor looked both natural and great.

Great job!

There’s nothing much I can actually say about this build, but that’s not a bad thing! This seemed more to me like a typical bunker, but a really well built one. There’s really nothing bad I can say about it. Every room I expected to see in a bunker was there, and even without explanations, I was able to guess most of the rooms. That’s exactly the type of build you want.

Nice build!!

**Honourable mentions**
