Back-Stock Promotional Picture

"Back-Stock" takes place after the events of Portal 2, as you are one of the test subjects found in the human vault at the end of Portal 2 co-op.
You are not being tested my GLaDOS directly, she has divided up the thousands of test subjects, and assigned them to other personality constructs, for testing.
You will go through the newly finished Aperture Science's Testing chambers, face new test solving techniques, and see new testing elements. Aperture has truly reached its prime.
This is only the beginning of the story, the rest is very engaging. We've designed this to be a story driven mod.
Throughout this mod you will encounter new game-changing mechanics, and chamber solving styles. Since you are a new test participant you will relearn the basics, and many basics that portal1,2 taught. when you complete Back-Stock you will naturally think in ways you never would have before, and you will think with portals.

Hey everyone, BenVlodgi here.

I just want everyone to know that we have actually been working on Back-Stock. The Dev team talks every day. I personally have been distracted by my senior year in College, and some side projects, including the BEEMOD. I hope to release the full (70 level) singleplayer campaign by spring, but time is a fickle thing, and we'll just have to see about that.

I don't post many screenshots or updates here on the moddb, because I don't want to get people really excited for this mod, and then disappoint you guys every-time we have to push back the release date.But just so you know, we are not dead in the slightest, and we are working very hard to create a great experience all Portal 2 fans, specifically you! :)

Will the game start of easy, and slowly get harder, or will it be really tough throughout the entire game like Portal: Prelude?

There is a decent learning curve.
We will recommend you play Portal 2 right before playing this mod, as we will be drawing from some of the lessons you learned in Portal 2
However we do try to gradually train new mechanics, and puzzle solving techniques, so people who may have forgotten old techniques will have some time to catch up.

I haven't finished Peer Review, but don't all the human's found at the end of co-op die because of a crow or something? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I have to say I have been looking forward to this mod for a while now. This mod looks absolutely beautiful, and all I hope for it is to introduce lots of new features.
