Portal has been called one of the most innovative games of the decade. A hybrid of FPS style and a new genre of spatial brain teasers, Portal offers hours of totally unique gameplay.

Set in the mysterious Aperture Science Laboratories, players must solve physical puzzles and challenges by opening portals, maneuvering objects, and moving themselves through space in ways that used to be impossible.

Playing Portal today will teach you how to love a "companion cube", whether a computer named GLaDOS really wants you dead, and why your friends keep telling you "the cake is a lie".

About Outside Influence - Volume One with 9 comments by SpAM_CAN on Apr 12th, 2014

Long time no see! I've been busy with university, moving across the country, and a whole host of other things, and this has sadly meant that I've not been able to do much to the mod over the last 8 months. However, I've not been completely idle!

In January I entered, and won, the Gamebanana "High Altitude" mapping contest with a little entry known as Portal: Skyline. The more eagle-eyed of you may notice that various elements of this bear a striking resemblance to screenshots from Outside Influence. The best reason for this is that Skyline is, in essense, the demo for Outside Influence. It bears no resemblance to the final mod in plot, or even much of the aesthetic, but it shows off some of the testing elements you can expect to see in OI, as well as give a taste of the puzzles that will be on offer.

 
 

Not only that, but the feedback from this has helped re-shape and modify the rest of the main mod, streamlining many of the puzzles and making them much easier to follow, as well as some general refinement of various areas and tasks.

If you wanna give Skyline a go, hit it up over here: Portal.gamebanana.com

I plan on also doing a Portal 2 version at some point in the future, though that could well be a way off. I've also recently created an unofficial version of VVVVVV that runs in the Windows Command Console, in case anyone was really dying to see your favourite Terry Cavanagh game cloned in the old MS-DOS Text Mode (if so, you have very specific tastes).

Anyway, I just thought I'd update you all and remind you that yes, I am not dead, and no, the mod is not cancelled. It's just a long haul project for me, one that I want to get right. I'm also considering moving the mod to Portal 2, if I can find a way to simulate the Portal 1 specific entities and techniques I've used throughout (though, this may be an enhanced port released after-the-fact).

Thanks,
Sam

Portal is made by the Narbacular Drop team.
They made Narbacular Drop for their senior project at DigiPen and Valve hired them.

Straightforward gameplay, and not too hard or too easy. Once you figure it out, its really fun.

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 5/10

what to say? this game is not challenging at all, completely boring and waaaay too short.

After 90 minutes of playing, just when i asked myself "when is this stupid tutorial over, i want puzzles!" the credits appeared and the game was over. it was really disappointing. the only thing that kept me from smashing my computer was this funny "still alive" song that was played in the credits.
that song is the only positive thing about this game. and certainly not worth 20 bucks.
