I've done all I can to the scene in CryEngine (not at home for the next week so I can't edit the build) but I can still post some blog entries from my laptop to finish up. I can officially say that there will be no gameplay in the level, so I can't call it a game. The level works in sandbox (editor) but didn't in pure game mode (not sure why and I didn't have time to investigate).
The way it works now is it will play a video when you start the game in the editor and then allow you to walk around and take a closer look at the assets I've made. The video will be uploaded to YouTube later on and I'll post a link to it.
Just need to prepare other bits and pieces ready for the submission and I'll be done.
