Desolation tells the story of a woman awaking to the echoed amalgam of an inhuman voice amid an empty 1960s Relaxation Annex, before she is ripped from it and plunged into the depths of the facility. As she struggles against severe injuries, the veil on her past is slowly lifted, and she finds herself facing an impending threat. But the question is not "can she live" - rather, can she live with herself?

Hi everyone! After months of work, the 1981 Aperture Laboratories Consumer Catalog is finally ready! It's an interactive experience packed with story and lore information, detailed concept artwork, and more! It's been a real team effort putting this together, and we're sure you'll love it. Click the link or one of the images below to begin your science adventure!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Turning pages by clicking on the bottom corners will sometimes flip two pages at once on the first time the catalog is opened. If you really want to click the bottom corners, it will work if you close and re-open the catalog!. We're working on fixing this, but for now using the buttons may be wiser!

Thanks! :) Glad you enjoyed the catalog. Regarding the Surface image, we're working on other areas of the game at the moment and probably won't get onto making the area shown in that image until much later.

Since you guys managed to get Adhesion Gel working, I wonder if it's coming to BEEmod? Would be a great addition.

Nope. Adhesion gel is an engine code change that is exclusive to our branch (that is to say, Desolation is on an entirely different engine version than Portal 2). BEEmod can't make code changes to Portal 2 unfortunately. However, it is a stretch goal of ours to try and give Desolation Workshop support so players can make their own puzzles with the new elements!

In that case, perhaps Desolation can have its own PeTI? Like Aperture Tag does?
