The Icon, the Video, and the Steam Group
No, it's not the beginning of a bad joke. It is, however, the subject of the second Portal: Stay Inside news update. Let's begin, shall we?
I've created the first draft of the icon that I'm planning to use for Portal: Stay Inside. Credit to the portal graphic goes to the creator/publisher of the "225+ dticons" pack (for the full discussion, see this thread); I recolored it, added the background and effects, etc. Here it is:
So what does anybody think? All feedback is welcome.
I've also got a new video of a P:SI chamber! The following video is taken from a room in Testchamber 03. It demonstrates some moving parts that aren't normally seen in a Portal environment. One note: there should be particle systems below the switch platform that is hovering in the foreground. For whatever reason, the built-in Source recorder didn't render them. Also, please remember that this doesn't at ALL represent the final version of the chamber. This is an early version, and I will keep working on it as the never-ending process of revision continues. Here it is:
Once again, any feedback is always welcome.
Steam Group Open
Finally, another milestone: the official Steam group for Portal: Stay Inside is open! I created it a few days ago, but it's only open now because I wanted to reveal it with this update. Here's the link to the group; go ahead and join today!
Thanks again for reading and best regards,
