The map was made by Jacobxxduel and the skull by FFJosh, who is now a ROBLOX super moderator. The map contains many trees, a mountain, a graveyard, a poison river, and a mansion. Hidden within the map were hints to help the players solve the riddles. At one point in the mansion, a decal instructed users to turn on their computer's sound if it already wasn't. If the players followed it, they would be able to hear a telephone ringing upstairs,which was not the path to the skull. Next to the phone was a balcony which lead to a hidden room. The room had an office theme with a poster on the wall explaining the hidden video contest.
