New Direction

News

For several weeks (months if your reading this on moddb), Portal: Forever Testing, has come to a complete stop in development. During this time, there was a lot of thinking done- as well as mapping for individual Portal 2 adventures.

While contemplating the game during the creation of these maps, a revelation set in for what we should do to make PFT the best possible experience.

These maps, released on Portal 2's workshop and Gamebannana, have steadily begun to show potential for something very interesting indeed- each with increasingly elaborate scenery and a wide array of varying ideas powering them. However, all these maps share one common problem: the limitations of Portal 2's workshop.

Back in December of 2019, when PFT started off, even It itself started as one such map, showing off an idea about the prototypes that would later become lasers within Aperture Science's history.

So, if making individual maps results in a better experience for everyone, why not make a Mod that works in that same manner? Rather than have people download the maps through varying methods and limit the maps' potential themselves, why not put them all in a place with fewer limitations, where everyone can download in one place?

Why waste time on a long plot and complicated story, when the end product will essentially be a repeat of what has already been done time and time again?

So, without further ado; Fennecai Fox Creative Presents: Forever Testing; Now a collection of various Portal 2 maps!

No two maps will be alike, nor will they share anything story-related. Each map will simply serve as it's own experience to be enjoyed independently, accessed from the main menu of the game via the same menu as before.

Assets, including textures, sounds, video clips, and more, will all be directly packaged alongside the maps, in the form of simple updates.

When we launch the initial batch of maps, it will include several of Fennecai's previous Portal creations, with more to come in future updates.

So, stay tuned. We're about to release maps in a way nobody has quite done previously, and we can't wait to share them with you!

"oh crap, another one!?" ...unfortunately, yes. Due to several circumstances, I need to take a break, and I hope you will understand why.

Will this story work with the canon of portal or take place in another universe?

This story is gonna aim to work with portal's canon as much as possible; save for some of our own additions. Nothing in the main canon will be too drastically changed; but you can expect some very light "retcons" occasionally where it has been deemed most necessary.

Yo just a tip don't fall into the canon trap. If you need to make cool stuff for your mod but it really breaks the cannon story of portal, just do it! There's the multiverse after all, everything's canon!

I dont want this mod to be specifically "an alternate universe" but you have a point otherwise. Kindof tired of trying to fit stuff perfectly into the canon. :P

I would just try to stay faithful to cannon if it's of the best interest of the mod. Just ask yourself "will the final product be better or worse if the mod is cannon?".

For instance, (though I didn't like its story very much) PS: Mel works better with a cannon story, but Aperture Tag doesn't need to be cannon. Hope you get what I'm saying.

yes; you make a lot of sense in regards to this.

I would rather break the "rules" anyway tbh. following portal 2's canon to a T is really constraining and stunting for the creativity. heck; the only reason I don't straight-up make this an "alternate universe" is because most mods that declare themselves as being in alternate universes are also mods that are very poorly received. So essentially, my mod takes place in "the canon universe" even though I'm only using the canon as a suggestion, rather than as the rule. :)
