The M.A.R.T.I. Initiative is a mod for Portal 2 that takes place in the sister location to Aperture Science, Aperture Theta. The player assume the role of a lost test subject and works to escape from the rogue AI built specifically to enforce testing, the Mandatory Artificial Robotic Testing Intelligence, or M.A.R.T.I. for short. Due to a cloudy past and a fixation from the AI only thought only to desire testing, this isn't going to be an easy task.

Hi.

It's been a while, the mod hasn't been updated since May 1st 2017.

You're probably wondering why, and here's why;

I have Crohn's Disease and became disabled.

In early April 2017, while I was recovering from removing my wisdom teeth, I developed a very bad lower gastrointestinal bleed. After about a 5 day stay in the hospital, I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease, and it seems to be a pretty moderate / severe case.

My Crohn's causes severe abdominal pain, extreme fatigue, vomiting, trouble eating, weight loss, anemia, and many other fun things. It's also caused me to lose my gallbladder, kicking off the first of several surgeries. More recently in April of this year, I had a month long stay in the hospital after an abscess scare turned into a perforated colon and I almost had to have it removed. A month in a bed has also severely deconditioned my body so it has also left me disabled. I had several surgeries in the hospital and more since, and I'm scheduled to have more very soon to fix complications from those surgeries.

This is why development on this project has all but stopped, and I'm sorry this happened. I still have a team behind me and am very eager to continue working, I just don't know how physically able I will be to do so.

2016 didn't have a 9+ month pause! It had over an entire year of radio silence! Yay!

Oh my god 2015 is over

Oh my god, 2015 is finally ending. This is weird.

Alive, but probably not kicking!

Since this mod has had a lot of hiccups, restarts, and me generally just not doing it, I figured some people following would want to see exactly how this...

Player works to escape from the rogue AI...? Hmmmmmm... oh wait, I know how to do it!
Step one: Stand Still
Step two: Remain calm
Step three: Scream:
"THIS STATEMENT IS FALSE",
"NEW MISSION: REFUSE THIS MISSION",
"DOES A SET OF ALL SET CONTAIN ITSELF?"

I know my paradoxes.

(awesome mod tho :D )

If you are looking for a voice actor, I would happily do the job. No payment, no repaying of any kind. I would love for a Portal mod to be my first time voice acting (note: That does not mean I am bad). I am willing to take as much time as needed to redo lines to make it into the amazing mod you have worked on so hard to make. All you need to do is just send me a message on steam and I will get back to you!

I don't really think an article is worthy of this, but I think all those following should know that the first 2 maps of the mod are undergoing a complete overhaul and all existing maps are having tweaks to fit with the changes to the first two.

I'm sorry this mod is taking forever, but I only redo things when I believe the time it takes to do it is worth it!

We can call this 'On life support'
I'm trying my best but no promises it'll be done! This was just a little side project that my friends went, "hey you're pretty good with architecture - we can make a mod!" This is essentially just a big learning project for me; I'll release the maps if I decide to stop working on it so you can see what ti was!

Sorry guys, I apologize for doing literally nothing with the mod for a while, depression's been kicking my behind.
