Cortal introduces brand new mechanics focused on working with colors and color combining. You will be given chance to explore and solve 10 test chambers and proove that you can think with colors.

Stay tuned (best way is watching) for more information.

The team working on Cortal:
We're helping eachother with everything of course, but our main doings are:
Keklolzor - Map design, writer and site manager. (
t3rmikxs - Mapper, puzzle designer and support-writer. (

Dear reader,

As you may or may not have noticed, we haven't shown any progress in quite a while, and we're sorry about that.
The truth is that t3rmikxs is covered in super-important things, and I cannot make anything really significant all alone.

So what does this mean?
Put simply; the mod is now paused, and we'll ask to archive it sometime in the near future.
Before you panic, this doesn't mean it'll vanish for ever. Once we both have enough time, we will either restore the archived mod, or create a new page for it.

That's about it, keep an eye out, and may the force be with you.

I'm glad that we still have some fanbase.
First of all, I'd like to apologise for the lack of updates. Like you may have read in the last article - I have several technical difficulties. I have very troubling internet connection with certain limits which means that I can't download Portal 2 after my recent computer failure.

Secondly, I would like to say, that we are still working on the mod. I am still making textures, trying new things, experimenting with enviroments and puzzle elements. Thing is, that most of this is done in my head. There is just no way for me to make my ideas move so you could see them in motion. There are also people who are great support for us and help us with developing Cortal to make sure your gameplay experience is going to be as good as possible.

And a little side note, aside from textures and all the enviroment stuff I do, the story keeps developing as well and I and Kek threw together some excellent ideas.

So, as you can clearly see, a lot of things are moving and changing, but none of this can be shown to you, because, quite frankly, there's not much to show apart from static texture pictures or my notes, which have little to no information value at all. As soon as I get access to Hammer again (which should be soon) you will be able to take a look into Gamma Technologies research facility.

Thank you for staying with us,
Cortal Development team

How about Orange Cubes? Or different color portals? Maybe you have to use Blue and Orange Portals for some tasks, Purple and Yellow Portals for more tasks, and Red and Green Portals for other tasks.


Cubes with Warm Colors can only go through Portals of Warm Colors, and Cubes with Cool Colors can only go through Portals of Cool Colors. Just another idea. You can change it however you want.

Hello, as nice ideas as they are, they don't really fit the concept that is built around CMYK and RGB color models. For more information refer to this ;)

Sorry, don't really like being rude or whatnot, but, pardon my language, you're just ******* pathetic.

I'm not really fan of this decision, but it's only logical.

FYI: I thought you've wrote you're not going to use colored cubes ;)

They've had this idea for awhile now, and you think you can just walk in and take it?

Take your own advice and don't steal.

They only recently moved it to P2, it's been in portal's mod section for awhile now.

Well one thing is "rip-off" or heavy inspiration, the other thing is just shameless stealing content and ideas.
If you put a lot of effort to something just to see people stealing it, it won't make you happy. I, for example spent a lot of time thinking and making the Cortal stuff and I believe it's understandable when I see some idiot like jacek just ripping us off I'm mad. Especially when this guy is acting immature and he's trying to spam both my messagebox and this mod's profile. I have to admit, I strongly dislike jacek, and I don't care if some people like him or not. For me, he will remain the guy who was not only stealing content from Cortal. And that's just big no for me.
