Portal Stories: Past Power

A 2012 demo level for a fan-made Portal 2 mod, Portal Stories: Mel.

Responsibilities: Level/Puzzle Designer

Collaborators: The Portal Stories Mod Team

Development Time: Nov 2011-Early 2012

(Requires Portal 2 to play)


For a short time in 2011-2012, I was part of the Portal Stories mod team as a level designer and video editor. Our first big level reveal/demo, Past Power, was based on a map I grey-boxed, conceptualized and designed. Team members then added decals, atmosphere and props to make the space more believable and presentable.

A highly modified and reworked version of this map and puzzle still exists in the official, final release of the mod in 2015.
