After being away from Moddb for almost 7 months, Portal Stories is back!

That’s right! After being away from Moddb for almost 7 months, Portal Stories is back! So much has been happening with Portal Stories while we’ve been away, but we will fill you in on that throughout this great new year of 2010. But in the meantime, there is one big update I want to share with you.

That’s right! After being away from Moddb for almost 7 months, Portal Stories is back! So much has been happening with Portal Stories while we’ve been away, but we will fill you in on that throughout this great new year of 2010. But in the meantime, there is one big update I want to share with you.

We have a new team leader; ME!
Here’s why…
Leading a mod team is huge work, and Pufje (our last team leader) was up to his neck in work; mapping, organising other team members, making all the creative decisions, etc. But when Pufje got his new job (congratulations Pufje!), he knew that if he didn’t stop leading the mod, he would get overwhelmed by all the work, and the mod would suffer as a result. Pufje chose me to be the new leader of the Portal Stories Team (Thankyou!) because, although I was only the Audio guy, I had given him a great number of creative ideas.
Now that Pufje (who is now our lead mapper) can concentrate on mapping, without having to worry about leading the team, we are getting a lot more of the mod done!
On a sadder note; Demon; who is one of our best mappers, will be unable to map for the mod anymore because he has had to join the army for 3 years. :(
By the way… I now have a copy of the entire Portal Stories plot that Pufje wrote. Just so you know; it is exceedingly marvellous!
Now… The time you have all been waiting for… Screenshot Time!



This is part of test chamber 01, where the player will quickly learn about putting cubes on buttons, etc.
We have recently finished a map called “Room XX” that introduces a new game mechanic. But we don’t want to show it yet, because a spectacular map deserves an equally spectacular way of showing it off. We have something special in mind….
So, you have probably noticed by now, but I’ll say it anyway; we updated our graphics here on our Moddb page! It looks cooler on the main page.

Soundtrack time!
Memoir – By Batfrog (I cant manage to embed it, PM me if you can help)
This is one of the main themes for Portal Stories.
Well… I think that’s about all for today.
Thankyou for reading!
Expect many more updates in the future.
Happy New Year!
