Portal Stories: Mel is a #Portal2 #mod with a new protagonist and whole new adventure for #Linux, Mac and Windows PC gamers.

  • 20+ Puzzle and exploration filled maps
  • Custom Story and Dialogue
  • Custom Textures, Models and Animations
  • 70s Prototype Portal Gun
  • Free to Play (You must own Portal 2)
  • Logic based puzzles, not execution based puzzles

And it looks really amazing.

The community created mod from Prism Studios takes place between Portal 1 and Portal 2. Starring a lady named Mel, who after being asleep for years, wakes to find out she needs to escape the facility and face a “new, still unknown threat.” A new personality core will be with her on the journey.

Here’s the synopsis:

In the early years of Aperture: Science Innovators, Cave Johnson’s scientists rushed to get everything working to catch up with the growth of the company. Not everything worked as it should have. Mel unfortunately took part in a faulty test called the Aperture: Science Innovators Short-Term Relaxation Vault, falling asleep for years. Now, with a fake Cave Johnson telling her she needs to escape the facility and a new device called the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, her mind races with questions. “Who is this imposter Cave Johnson?” “What happened to the facility and its staff?”

Which is basically an entirely new game for anyone who already owns Portal 2.
