Portal Stories: Mel is a mod consisting of 21 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 15-45 minutes on each level, making the total time playing the mod 4-12 hours, 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.

A quick update on the progress of the mod, plus a developer commentary from Andy and I, few screenshots and show whats happening...

Posted by UnquietChimp on Nov 16th, 2011

I know there's a lot of people waiting on info for this mod, but I assure you, things are happening. And quickly. This is why things don't happen on here, we have prior engagements for getting the mod done. For you guys. Now here's whats been happening:

  • Many of you would have seen the beautiful and shiny updated maps (that are especially shiny) and this is just a few of the maps that are under development right now. Obviously, give away too much and it ruins the game but I must say that they brought a tear to my eye.
  • For those who either a) Didn't get the hint of looking at our brilliant mapper Annemieke (LPFreaky90)'s maps, or b) Could not, for some circumstantial reason not look at our gallery at once.
  • The original concept of the map and the original mapper of it is MarioishBeast (Alon), then, LPFreaky90 enhanced it. So, here are some preview pictures of the enhancement:
New level New level new screenshots New level

...Now if that doesn't get the ol' juices flowing, I don't know what will...
Check out our developer commentary featuring Andrew (andy3471) and James (UnquietChimp) Youtube.com

  • We have recorded some more draft vocals which are being applied to the map as I write this (Not all at once, that would be silly) and so the story line is being cemented into the very fabric of our creation.
  • Speaking of the story, we now have a definitive blockbuster of a plot (whereas it was just adequately brilliant before) so if you were looking forward to it then you will be crying yourself to sleep each night before it releases. (You may want to see a psychiatrist as it may not release for a while and sleep deprivation is very serious...)

All of us here at Righteous are really excited about whats going on behind closed doors as well as whats been shown. I, personally, can see this being one of my favourite games... We all look forward to releasing it and if anyone fancies getting involved then we are an email away:

well, the idea is that the final mod will consist of approximately 45 levels.
The first batch (Portal stories: Mel) will be singleplayer.
The second batch will be multiplayer
and the final batch will be singleplayer again.

So it will be both, but the first release (Mel) will be sp only
