In November 2010, just after Thanksgiving (in the United States), the first ever version of Blue Portals was released to the public. Now, five years later, we're ready to release it again - this time on Steam. In honor of Blue Portals' fifth birthday, we've decided to bring our first ever mod to a much larger platform with a wider audience. This Steam Anniversary Edition would come packaged with everything in the current build of Blue Portals, but with additional features:

  • Revamped assets, including brand new higher resolution textures and (possibly) new voicework.
  • Bug fixes, performance improvements, and general enhancements.
  • Easy installation, simply click to download!
  • Improved packaging - no more loose files.
  • Automatic updates (if needed).
  • Steam achievements and cloud saves.
  • Soundtrack available for free (composed by The Hamster Alliance)!

If Greenlit, we would of course need some time to make our improvements and changes and implement new features - but when we're done it will be release for free just as it was five years ago! You can click the banner below to vote for us on Greenlight!

As always, thanks for the support and happy testing!

Hey, can I get the old pre-SteamPipe version anywhere?

Speedrunning purposes. Some glitches are harder to perform on SteamPipe. And I didn't back up my 5135 BP :/

In this case, you'd need to have backed up the entire Source 2009 version of Portal. We didn't recompile the engine, Valve did.

Ha I love speedruns can I have a link to your channel?

BTW wouldn't this go against some rules or something? If you make a speedrun of that version I think you would need to name the video "Pre-Steam pipe" and have all the files for people to download too on the description.

I had to get the pre-steampipe version from some shady website.

It's common practice to run Portal stuff on pre-steampipe so it doesn't really need any specific notes.

Pretty sure no one would like me posting links here. My channel is rather easy to find, and regarding the BP link, I don't want to accidentally get you a virus or something, so yeah.

Will the greenlight version of Blue Portals include Blue Portals: Refresh? Is that project still going?

I need to find a backup of that project and post a video of it. I remember it being weird and broken along with stuff relating to fruit.

Likely won't include it, as we stopped working on Refresh.

When I tried to load it up, some of the textures were missing. All the textures of the walls and that stuff were fine, but the glass was purple, the reflections were purple and black, and half of the walls had this transparent purple thing on them, and some of them were just recoulored purple.

What made Portal great was while it was certainly challenging it was easy once you figured out what to do. The main problem with basically any Portal mod i've played is that you know what to do but no matter what you do you can't do it. Any Portal mod that requires crouch jumping, having two portals next to each other and forming a circle that makes you go higher is just frustrating to play in my honest opinion. Sadly this mod falls in the same category as Portal Prelude and Gamma Energy, really…

I only give it that few points because it's mainly about jumping!
You have to jump here an hour and there! You have to think for half a minute to get the solution but half an hour to xecute it, because its only about difficult jumping that has to do with a big load of luck! not more. Many ideas are awesome but that jumping sucks and ruins everything
