Tier 3 is an upcoming mod for Portal and Portal 2, it will take place in the year or so before Portal. Kat, the main character, is an elite test subject raised for the sole purpose of being the perfect test subject. Over her many years of testing, she has exhibited the kind of behavior GLaDOS hoped for. However, the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device is nearly finished and Kat yearns to see the outside. After all, GLaDOS won't need her after she can finish the ASHPD, right?

Post news Report article RSS Feed Welcome to Tier 3

First thing you should know about Tier 3- We value the quality of the game more then the speed in which we release it. A lot more. A LOT lot more. REALLY a lot lot more. So much more that... ...Well, look, we ARE in development, okay? Currently, we are focusing on storyline (mapping is going on too, just not as quickly as it would if we were paying full attention to it, but wouldn't you all rather have a long game well thought out with a good storyline then one that comes out fast?)

Posted by GLaDOSv3.11 on Jun 20th, 2011

Hello! GLaDOSv3.11 here (you may know me from Steam User Forums under the same username) The dev team and I have finally gotten around to putting this up on Mod DB(oh goody!) But guess what? We're still not giving away anything new to the plot! (Mwahahahasoevilmwahahaa) I DIGRESS. So, we don't want to give away too much, but we have a trailer coming up(as soon as someone can get Scottystreet off of Valve time, that is) anyway.

So, clearly, since I've just put this up, I don't have everything up and organized yet(please excuse the mess) I will be working on it. Our website will also have a blog (because I said I wanted one) And we are going to update the dev team information as well....

So, I know everyone is probably thinking "Well just give us some more INFO already!!!" Well, soon we'll put up some videos (like that trailer i mentioned) and maybe put up the opening.

What. that's not enough? Fine. I'll give up two beta testing videos we have (they've been up for a while but not many people have seen them. We have lots of new stuff, just bear with us as we work on the mod. -Pardon our progress, we are still in business)

Oh yes. The videos.

Here you go.

So now you know that YES! We DO have chambers (now I'm going to tell you that we DITCHED THESE ONES! HA! You thought I'd give you videos of chambers we're using? HA!)

But don't worry, we've got BETTER ones. And of course, as those were in beta, they didn't have any voice talents in them.

So now that that's out of the way, I will be updating this (and hopefully my fellow Innovators will as well).

Oh yes, and we'd welcome another mapper and a source modeler into the team happily (after spending five hours in Photoshop, screaming at the computer for not opening up the new skins, I gave up. Photoshop wins... For now...)

Looks good, but why are you using the crappy Portal 1 textures?

The videos are clearly based off Portal 1, unless I'm mistaken. Also, can't wait to play it folks!

Yes, the atmosphere is meant to capture that of Portal 1 :)

I had this idea before Portal 2 was out.

The videos are from Portal 1, so is this going to be a mod for Portal 1 or Portal 2? *confused*, Or both?

It's not worth it, just do it for Portal 2 so you have a more focused mod. Anyone who is of sane mind owns Portal 2.

Yeah but you have to keep in mind for various reason not everyone's computer can run portal 2.

The videos were taken with old Source- We started production awhile ago but scrapped those chambers and made new ones with the new Source.

All the screenshots are from some of our newer ones. Still undecided as to which set of textures we'll use but if everyone prefers Portal 2, I'll get our mappers to reconsider.
