Portal Stories: Mel is a community made, free modification for Portal 2 based in the Portal universe.
It tells the story of Mel, who arrives at Aperture: Science Innovators in 1952. To take part in an experiment that goes completely wrong...

1952, in the early years of Aperture: Science Innovators, Cave Johnson’s scientists experimented with whatever they wanted. Not everything worked as it should have though, but that wasn't going to get in the way of the progress of Science! Mel unfortunately took part in a faulty test called the Aperture: Science Innovators Short-Term Relaxation Vault, falling asleep for years.
When she finally wakes, there is a fake Cave Johnson telling her she needs to escape the facility and a new device called the Aperture Handheld Portal Device, her mind races with questions. “Who is this imposter Cave Johnson?” “What happened to the facility and its staff?”

Below some quotes from Steam reviews:

Puzzles are way more challenging and you will get stuck from time to time screaming !%#$ this #45#$%#....! but then you'll find a way to solve it and be like 'am i that stupid... this was so simple...' Very professionally done.
Feels either considerably harder than either of the original games or I'm too rusty.
Regardless, if you liked either Portal, you can't possibly go wrong with this.It's been awhile since my brain last had a workout.Best Portal 2 Mod ever created.
- awesome SFM Animations
- beautiful Maps
- great voiceactors
- great story
- medium ~ difficult puzzles
I completed the mod in 5.2 hours.
Its free and the quality as good as valve.

I keep trying to get this mod off of steam, but steam isn't allowing me to install. It says I have to buy it for $0.00 dollars, which is causing problems when I go to pay. It's just giving me an error.

I already own and have portal 2 installed on my computer. Anyone encountering this problem?

Only a few more hours now. I should probably sleep while I have the chance.

Portal Stories: Mel delivers what it promises, the mod have well-detailed environments that realy helps in immersion, and are very nice to look at, there is always something grabbing your attention, be they a poster, model, an architecture detail etc.. the puzzles are indeed logic based, although sometimes appear that they're rly complicated, the solution is almost always something that can come naturally when you stop and take a second look at it, is needed to say there is no re-teaching of the…
