I went back to map 7 and found the RL there.

I just think it adds a lot to the atmosphere if "death" actually means something and you need to start over.

Any hints about the secret lift in map 8? I don't see anything obvious, and I don't feel like testing every surface in the entire map for a hidden switch

I was pretty sure that this was not a secret in the original game, and checking a longplay on Youtube seems to confirm that: There's a clearly visible switch for that elevator in AB3D.

Yeah it's a new secret for this version, since you get RL+armor which is quite potent. The wall you want is near said armor, in the dark. Look for a different texture. After that it should be fairly obvious.

"Look out for an additional secret map too,
based on an obscure demo found on Team 17's FTP server. "

Nope, although that map and the rolling demo map are coming too, its just they use a lot of different textures and I need to finish sprites for the Xenomorphs and stuff, so they're taking a bit longer.

This demo is an even more obscure one, I don't remember it ever being on a coverdisk and hadn't seen it before developing this game. Seems to be much closer to release as it has the graphics and enemies from the final game. The map is a bit simple and seems to be mostly for showing off the engine, but I extended it a bit with some extra rooms and a big final fight.
