Portal: Prelude, as its name states it, is an unofficial prequel to the game Portal. Its story revolves around the pre-GlaDOS epoch, even before she was plugged in. At this time, test subjects were monitored by real Aperture Science employees, whose work was tedious, lengthy and repetitive. This is why they decided to build a great artificial intelligence that could both replace them in these difficult tasks, and also take responsibility for many other tasks within the complex and compete with Black Mesa's superiority. All employees of the Aperture Science complex are now eagerly awaiting GlaDOS. Maybe even a little too eagerly, as the upcoming events will tell... This game is totally free. It offers a bit more gameplay hours than the original Portal, with 8 chapters, 19 test chambers, 48 challenges, 6 advanced maps, a brand new storyline and more than 400 lines of english speech with dozens of subtitles translations.

And there's a little misunderstanding regarding this 24h exclusivity. We're not earning any money of this. It's just one more step to world domination! =)

I'm not a big fan of fileplanet exclusivity. It can be useful for multi player mods as they need the additional attention to get more players but for a single player mod it's not really advantageous in my opinion. I'll be getting it tomorrow of Moddb.

Aww, not going through all the hassle to register at Fileplanet. :(
(Mostly because I find them to be corporate bastards and shove up so much ads in your face. :P )
Why do so many mod allow Fileplanet to be first in line for new mods?
Some kind of teleportation device that lists the files for download the day before they're uploaded? :P

Though the fun has been taken out of it all somewhat with exclusive release on fileplanet a day early :-( (as if there aren't enough sites to register to)

Just finished it) Great. Not that good in the beginning, but getting better and better to the end. Voices are very good, although for some reason subs don't work for me - turned them on for second walkthrough - with commentaries. Didn't work. And because comments are in french I cant understand a thing :(
Other than that - awsome mod - best for Portal and one of the best source mods in general.

(I wrote this without reading carefully.) If you go to the audio menu and turn on subtitles, you can read the developer commentaries in English.

(Oh frak, you already tried to turn on subtitles. Now I can't delete my comment -_-)
