In November 2010, just after Thanksgiving (in the United States), the first ever version of Blue Portals was released to the public. Now, five years later, we're ready to release it again - this time on Steam. In honor of Blue Portals' fifth birthday, we've decided to bring our first ever mod to a much larger platform with a wider audience. This Steam Anniversary Edition would come packaged with everything in the current build of Blue Portals, but with additional features:

  • Revamped assets, including brand new higher resolution textures and (possibly) new voicework.
  • Bug fixes, performance improvements, and general enhancements.
  • Easy installation, simply click to download!
  • Improved packaging - no more loose files.
  • Automatic updates (if needed).
  • Steam achievements and cloud saves.
  • Soundtrack available for free (composed by The Hamster Alliance)!

If Greenlit, we would of course need some time to make our improvements and changes and implement new features - but when we're done it will be release for free just as it was five years ago! You can click the banner below to vote for us on Greenlight!

As always, thanks for the support and happy testing!

when I run the mod on the background of the missing black and purple texture.
and I can't play what should I do?

If the background isn't loading, the mod isn't installed correctly. Make sure you put the folder in Sourcemods, have Portal 1 installed, and have Source SDK Base 2013 installed and set to the upcoming beta branch - and make sure it's all on the same hard drive as Steam.

I'm a decent portal mapper myself but I got to say that I really enjoyed playing this mod. The new type of design is really outstanding. This looks really nice in general and I'd even say it's got better "graphics".

This is one of my favorite mods. In fact, I wish there was an update where you can make the music shut up. (It uses the sound channel, not the music channel)

Game is currently unplayable. Keep getting the missing texture overlay when underwater. Can't get past chapter 4 due to this.

No one can play it because of the game breaking bug on chapter 4. Probably one of the reasons why the Dev can't get a job. Food for thought.

Id like to see you make something better than this mod.

Ah damn, guess you're right. My employment status DOES hinge on the fact that a mod nobody cares about or plays is broken due to a poorly tested engine update on Valve's part! So wise.

I'll get a patch out just for you, babe.

I think it reflects attitude and lessens the quality of your portfolio, but meh. Was enjoying the Mod, checked out most of the maps, can see where PUNT got its style from. Think I'd be too paranoid to apply any such update patch after you said it like that..

Bolloxed, this mod is STILL playable. I passed it a few times before, despite some crash or problem.

What the heck bolloxed? This mod is playable, I played through the entire game without a single crash or problem.

You started an arguement that doesn't make any sense. You said "Game is currently unplayable. Keep getting the missing texture overlay when underwater. Can't get past chapter 4 due to this." and the creator just says "Then don't play it." Then the drama happens for no logical reason.

What made Portal great was while it was certainly challenging it was easy once you figured out what to do. The main problem with basically any Portal mod i've played is that you know what to do but no matter what you do you can't do it. Any Portal mod that requires crouch jumping, having two portals next to each other and forming a circle that makes you go higher is just frustrating to play in my honest opinion. Sadly this mod falls in the same category as Portal Prelude and Gamma Energy, really…
