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!

My game keeps crashing near the start of chamber 11. Any idea what could be causing this?

Oh, alright then.

Anyways, you people did a great job with the mod. It was fun, original, there was a lot of details on each level, and (beyond that on chamber 11) there were no gamebreaking bugs.

Thank you, we really appreciate it! Although this mod is now three years old, it's still great when people come across the mod, and enjoy it. :)

We are just working on final touches at this point with the update.

I forget if this is the exact error I got, but if it's caused by the steampipe update than the following fixed it for me.

1) Go to Steamcommunity.com
2) Ignore the fact that it's talking about getting mods working on Linux
3) Find Blue Portals in the Portal Mods section
4) follow the pastebin link (direct: Pastebin.com)
5) Replace gameinfo.txt in the Sourcemods/Blue Portals folder with that

That got it running for me; hopefully it will for you too!

Yes, this works. I'm running it now in Mac OSX.

That is because of the new portal update. No portal mods work for the time being

Do I have to have Portal installed to run this or is it enough to have the Source base or Source SDK installed?

This is a Portal Content mod so, you need Portal installed.

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
