Portal Stories: Past Power
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 during 2011-2012, I was part of the Portal Stories mod team as a level designer and amateur video editor. Our first big vertical slice demo, Past Power, is based on a map I built and designed. Team members then added decals, additional geometry, atmosphere and props to make the space more believable.
A highly modified and reworked version of this map and puzzle still exists in the official, final release of the mod in 2015, which received extremely positive reactions from the gaming press and Portal 2 fans at large.
