Portal: Prelude, An Unofficial Prequel

September 18, 2008

Video game modifications sure are something, aren’t they? The Unreal Tournament series, as well as Half-Life 2 have had some amazing mods, but Portal: Prelude raises the bar to a whole new level.

Portal: Still Alive was unveiled at Microsoft’s E3 2008 press conference, but that will not continue the story and will have miniscule new content. Hardcore Portal fans need a big experience to tide them over until Portal 2 is released, and that is just what Prelude will deliver.

While this may not be an official release from Valve, it will actually be longer than the original Portal, and have it’s own story-line, in which test subjects are observed by Aperture Science employees, meaning it is the pre-GLaDOS era. A main team of three people are developing the game, which will include “8 chapters, 19 test chambers, 48 challenges, 6 advanced maps,” already more than the original game, “and more than 400 lines of speech.” The game will only be available for PC Portal owners, but the soon-to-come download is said to be free. GLaDOS? No. Amazing offer? Yes!
