Hi everyone, it's been a while I haven't give any news. It's been a busy time for me and I can't work much on the project.

I might disappoint some of you, but life is getting harder with school and the fact I have to move.

The project will be on hold for an undetermined time, I should be able to work again later in 2015.

A good news is that The project might get into serious development around September/October 2015. So far, it was a project in which I was working in my free time and when i felt like it. 
Once I start college in level design class, I will attempt to make a team and work on Abyss as a School project which will give me way more resources and more support from more experimented folks.

Thank you all for the support. I want to finish this project even if it's barely started in some ways.
Hopefully things will be nice and give me more time to work on.

I will give you news once the project start again.

I can really relate to the protagonist falling down a cliff, I always fall down cliffs when running from our alien over loads.

I like the idea. Just a thing: remember that HL2's story takes place few years after portal 1. It shouldn't look like there was any recent activity, but it shouldn't be completly in ruins either.

well my story happen around 2015-2025. It is not following perfectly the event of the other games since I will make some changes myself. I made quite a lot of studies on both story and I think i could make this happening just before Hl2. I estimated Hl2 and Portal 2 to be happening around the same time ( mostly talking about how destroyed the facility is comparative to the time it has been left over)

Well, in the Final Hours of Portal 2, it says that Portal is set at least 50,000 years before its sequel.

I know but a realistic 50,000 years after portal 1 the facility would have gone to dust a large empty hole on the surface of the earth. by looking on the destruction in portal 2 Any realistic time line would go around 30 years not more. The entire facility is made out of easy to craft materials all of it would be destroyed in a very long time period. ( A good idea would be watching the documentary "Life after people") Also look how the Old aperture look way older and destroyed than the New aperture. if it was really 50,000 years later there wouldn't have any much of a difference.

I personally set the Timeline of Portal 2 around 2020.

In the Final hours they go with the Idea of a very long time like 50,000 years as a theme. giving the player more the feeling of being the only human alive on earth. I don't think they really mean it.

Thanks for showing your thought.
