Portal 2 draws from the award-winning formula of innovative gameplay, story, and music that earned the original Portal over 70 industry accolades and created a cult following.

The single-player portion of Portal 2 introduces a cast of dynamic new characters, a host of fresh puzzle elements, and a much larger set of devious test chambers. Players will explore never-before-seen areas of the Aperture Science Labs and be reunited with GLaDOS, the occasionally murderous computer companion who guided them through the original game.

The game’s two-player cooperative mode features its own entirely separate campaign with a unique story, test chambers, and two new player characters. This new mode forces players to reconsider everything they thought they knew about portals. Success will require them to not just act cooperatively, but to think cooperatively.

About Portal Stories : Mel with 4 comments by lpfreaky90 on Jun 20th, 2014

Hello Test Subjects!

After about 3 years of development we're finally at the last stages of development of the mod.
We're incredibly happy to announce that we are now aiming for a release in Q1 2015.
Because of recent updates to portal 2 we will also be able to bring Portal Stories to Mac and Linux!

Some more teasers!
the map "concepts" in it's updated form.

Last year in August we created our very first limited closed beta of Portal Stories: Mel.
There was a lot of positive feedback, but there were some levels that were a problem or just not meeting the quality of other maps.

For the last 10 months we've been very busy working with the feedback we've gotten:
* The mod is now 21 levels instead of 15!
* The intro is heavily expanded upon, to make more room for story and make the whole thing way more immersive.
* The first major story level got a major rework. It's prettier than ever and helps tell the story way better.
* Past Power (the demo map) has been reworked again from the ground up to perform better, play better and tell the story better!
* The style transitions have been created.
* The clean test chambers have been edited so they are very interesting to look at.
* The map "Paint Fling" has been rebuilt from the ground up, making the puzzle more interesting and way nicer looking.
* One confusing clean map got cut and replaced by a new, awesome map, reusing some of the ideas of the original.
* The second transition between styles gotten a very visually impressive extra puzzle.
* Two destroyed puzzles that weren't working or had performance problems have been reworked from the ground up.
* Replaced a destroyed puzzle with a new, better one.
* Heavily expanded upon the concept for the finale.

Some more teasers!
Part of one of our transition levels.

All our maps are now at the standard we want our mod to be and we're incredibly proud of this.

So what's left to do?
* Get a new, up-to-date, trailer!
* Get a new, up-to-date, demo for you guys to play!
* Finalize some of the unfinished areas in the intro
* Finalize the script
* Get voices recorded
* Get our custom music recorded
* Add the final story lines to the maps
* Lots of play-testing, to make sure we got all the bugs
* Do a final Detail pass, to make sure all our maps have the visual fidelity we want them to have
* Check the optimization, to make sure the mod runs as smoothly as possible

This is quite a bit of work; but we have confidence we can get this work done in time for a Q1 2015 release!
I hope you all are as excited as we are!

- The Portal Stories Team.

Some more teasers!
We'll be Hitting a release date soon!
