Destroyed Aperture is a free community made modification for Portal 2.

Aperture Science Facility 7 is empty. Following the failure of the central core, the complex has been consumed by overgrowth and decay. With the exits sealed and communications disabled, David Grayling is trapped, helpless and alone, with no recollection of his past. But when he discovers a teleporter capable of transporting him to other Aperture facilities, he can't help but wonder if salvation lies ahead. Teaming up with a charming personality core named Neado, David steps through the teleporter into the unknown. What dark secrets will he find on the other side? Is he destined to die amid the ruins of Aperture, or can he find a way to escape? Will he ever regain his memories and discover the truth?

Hello everyone.

We apologise for being quiet for the past 8 months, but don't worry! That doesn't mean we've stopped the development, not at all!

We are dedicated, thus we still plan on finishing the mod and releasing it on Steam, and we always will.

So, what have we been up to?

In the past 8 months we've had difficulty trying to reach out to some of the developers and we're still trying, if we don't manage it, we'll have to use a so-called "Plan B", which will require us to look for new team members and will, most likely, take us significantly more time to finish the mod, but as said, we will definitely release it eventually.
The work from these developers is necessary for the mod, and it's what has been holding us back.

If we do end up taking our "Plan B", you could be the new team member if you have what it takes!

Who will we be looking for?

  • SFM Animator
  • Voice Actors
  • 3D Modellers (includes rigging)
  • ...and dedication

    Note: We require a showcase of your previous work if you decide to apply.

    The list may not be complete, we will make an announcement if "Plan B" becomes a reality with the full list of who we'll be looking for.

If you have any of these skills and you are volunteering to participate on this project, feel free to already apply in the comments!
But, do note that, at this time, we don't guarantee you a place on the team.

Our current progress

In terms of progress, we've been doing progress on the mapping process. Most maps got a few adjustments and improvements, further bug fixes, detail improvements and a few changes. One map got a complete rework, it is still WIP so we won't reveal any screenshot just yet, but as soon as it's ready, it'll be posted in the #sneak-peeks channel on our Discord server! Join it if you haven't already!

But, here are some latest screenshots!

And here's a little teaser. :)

We thank you for taking the time to read this.

So you're only getting new developers if it comes to the "Plan B"? Many mode are still hiring even if they still have some members. I don't think its a good idea to stat hiring only when you have a lot of developers who already left, it's bad for momentum.

How is it going? Can't wait to see any news!

Heck, I can wait. You're putting a lot of work into it and I appreciate that. Triple-A games often are postponed and mods such as these are made as a hobby by people with full-time jobs! So a delay is expected.

Keep up the good work! I will be waiting for cake...
