Outside Aperture

Outside Aperture

I gotta play this game one of these days. Anyhow, here’s a video I came across earlier this morning based on the original ending of Portal. I’ve never played the game, so when (or if) I do, is this spoiling anything for me? Is the final boss a cake? I mean literally a cake? I’m guessing that would have to be one bad ass cake… Don’t get me wrong, I really liked the video. I thought it was well shot and entertaining, but if the game is about finding clever ways to amuse yourself with ultra advanced technology (like scratching your own back), then that sounds kind of boring to me. I dunno… I really am curious to see what all the hype is about. Check out the video below. It was created by Eisen Feuer, and if you want to see more of his work you can visit his Youtube channel or his website. Enjoy!

  1. The Portal games are about using a “Portal Gun” to get around and move stuff in various “test chambers” (levels). The levels are really like big, fancy mouse mazes where you have to rearrange the objects in the room to reach the exit, but you are the mouse in this experiment. You have an infinite number of lives and there is no penalty for dying because you will die many times trying to figure out how to get out of each room There is a computer who sounds friendly, but constantly puts your life in danger in order to test this “new product”. There are several ways to end the game, and actually getting to the cake (your reward for surviving the testing) is going a step above and beyond just finishing the game, as is getting outside of Aperture Labs and into the parking lot. There is a lot of humor in the game, but it is very dry, since it is largely delivered via “computer voice”.

  2. Oh yeah, I forgot: the thing that is so cool about Portal is their use of “real world” physics. You can set up a portal on the floor and ceiling and then jump through them and fall until you reach terminal velocity in a realistic fashion. Half Life 2 used the same engine, but had no Portal Gun…

  3. Sounds interesting. I like how they’re willing to put someone’s life in danger, and then just give them a cake if they survive. In the ads I’ve seen, there’s two goofy looking robots. What do they have to do with the game?

    That’s Part 2. The two robots are there in order to play a co-op version of the second game. The chick is hotter in the second game, too. It doesn’t affect game play, but UNF.
