Aperture's Hour fills the missing link between Aperture and Black Mesa, what DID happen at Aperture during the Black Mesa Incident? Think with Portals to evacuate yourself from Aperture while the resonance cascade is causing havoc across the world.
You play as Aperture employee named Erik Walker - a test chamber observer watching test subjects while the newly launched GLaDOS is shut down for installation of a Morality Core after having attempted to kill all of the employees. Your day is going along fine, until Black Mesa's Gordon Freeman, pushes the cart. A resonance cascade occurs, a rip in space linking the Border World and Reality.
An after-effect of this is not only destruction in Black Mesa, but across the world. It seems like just a power-cut to start with, but it then turns into a major event with Portal Storms and massive tremors causing mass destruction through the world, can you evacuate Aperture Science?
I have a few bits of news for you.
First off, welcome Razor792 (or just Razor) to the development team as the new leader. He messaged me pretty soon after I posted my last piece of news and he explained how much experience he had with Hammer. I was impressed, so please do welcome him.

Second, I am not out of the development team, I am still part to do mapping and graphics but I do not play the largest role since I am pretty busy. One of my recent projects has been to redo the ModDB graphics, so you'll be seeing the new graphics popping up soon.
Thirdly, I'm just putting it out there, if you think you'd be able to help with development, please message Razor792.
