Portal Stories: Mel is a mod consisting of 22 maps with various themes, linked together by a strong, brand new story. There will be new voice lines, models, materials, particle effects, challenging puzzles, and much more! We estimate players to spend 6-10 hours on completing this mod, depending on experience. Most levels consist of puzzles with varying difficulties. The difficulty will always be in the puzzles. The execution will never require any quick reactions.

It has been months since our last update but we're still alive!

Hello everyone!

It's been a very long time since we've posted any news regarding Portal Stories, that doesn't mean we're dead though. In fact: we've been quite busy. Unfortunately the last few months have been really hectic, with some real life stuff that totally messed up the planning for content for Portal Stories.

In the last few weeks we've been very busy sorting out maps, seeing what we had and if it fitted the quality for Portal Stories. We've concluded that at least one map wasn't good enough. Lp has released it to her workshop in two parts:
Lp's turret fling and Lp's funnel fun the reason why those maps were removed is because they were too simple and required too much timing.

So far the list of maps we have at the moment:

  1. Opening, work in progress
  2. Garden, needs some final touches
  3. Under bounce, done.
  4. Blue bounce, almost done
  5. Past Power, done
  6. Don't meet Virgil, done
  7. Transition 1, work in progress
  8. Paint fling, done
  9. Just one cube, done
  10. Run around, done, but undergoing a major revamp.
  11. Transition 2, work in progress
  12. Destroyed, done, needs optimization
  13. Beta 2, done, needs optimization
  14. That laser, done
  15. Ending, work in progress.

Since the development of this mod is taking so long we've learned a lot of new things along the way. We feel that it's a good thing we've waited so long, since we're now able to release a mod with the quality we couldn't think we could make when we first started the mod. We've been working on improving the quality of more maps and it's time to give you guys some more comparison screenshots.

We hope to release the mod soon, but we still have a lot of work to do. We hope you're still looking forward to this mod. We sure do! Hopefully we'll have more news for you in the near future!

I upgraded to Win 8 so the trailer progress and mod progress for me is now on halt. When the mod will come to a close it'll come out.
