Aperture: Science Innovators. 1952. In the early days, Cave Johnson's science team tried to get working what they could. Everything did not go as well as they'd hoped though. Unfortunately for Mel, she became part of a faulty test. Waking up years later in a vastly changed, destroyed Aperture, and being told where to go by an impostor Cave Johnson, her mind races with questions. Who is this Cave Johnson impostor? What happened to me? And what happened to the facility and staff?

Portal Stories: Mel is an upcoming free to play mod based in the Portal universe. It tells an entirely new story with a new protagonist, personality core, and a new secret character in development.

Main Features

· 20+ Puzzle and exploration filled maps
· New Story Complete with New Dialogue
· Original Soundtrack
· New 1970's themed Portal Gun
· New Textures, Models, Particle Effects, and Sound Effects
· Free to Play (You must own Portal 2)

Get ready for an incredible adventure taking place in the gap between Portal 1 and Portal 2 with Portal Stories: Mel.

The Mod:


Portal Stories: Mel is a mod consisting of 21 maps with various themes, linked together by a strong custom story.  We estimate players to spend 15-45 minutes to spent on each level, making the total time playing the mod 4-12 hours, depending on experience.  Most levels consists of puzzles with varying difficulties.  The difficulty will always be in the puzzles.  The execution will never require any quick reactions.

We hope to release in Q1 2015

As you can see; we have a lot done, we have a lot more work to do as well. But we're working hard on getting you this awesome mod as soon as humanly possible. As for custom materials and models, at the moment I don't have a proper list of them but we have quite a lot of them!

When you say "stand alone mod" does that mean I can play without owning Portal 2?
Because I have yet to purchase it on the PC, I have only played it on the xbox.
I do not own my Xbox anymore, ive discovered the wonders of PC gaming.

Yes, this mod requires portal 2, so stand-alone might have not been the best term. Sorry for any confusion. What I meant was that you launch it separately. (Like shown in the news post). So basically, it starts portal 2 with some different values, which result in different menu's, custom textures etc.

If you don't have portal 2 yet on the pc: it's worth it! Lots of custom maps to play and soon this mod as well!
(If you don't have the money, wait until the Christmas sale, it will most likely be on sale again ^^)

Portal 2 is required, for legal reasons, this just means it runs actually as a sourcemod, not just a map pack, so includes custom textures and menus
