I've just got this and it's a really great game. Yes there is a gun, but it's for creating portals in walls/floors etc, not for creating holes in people or living things. I'm stuck on one where I need to go through a portal, come out the other side and while still falling, create ANOTHER portal so I can fall into it! My coordination don't work that quickly!

I've seen this game and played a level or two, but for some reason I haven't gone out and gotten it. But enjoy the cake!

That game was so much fun! And hilarious--a female version of HAL 9000. As for the double fall, after awhile it becomes second nature and rather fun. Racegirl, just keep trying. Took me about a day to master. There's an easter egg method of actually finding the cake and getting out alive/intact. But do that after you've played the game through as it should be. smile.gif

Portal is a great game. At least I enyojed it very much smile.gif

It may take a while before you figure out how it works, but when you do, you'll be able to warp yourself through the different levels. The game really picks picks up when you get both portal guns (enter/exit). You can do great stuff with that.

I liked those comments from those gunturrets laugh.gif

There are also custom made maps available for download. You can look at this site

On a side note, for anyone who has got Rock Band (2), you can download the end song "Still Alive" for free at the Rock Band music store smile.gif

Okay, it's been awhile, but the "hint" was by watching videos on You Tube. It involved incinerating myself. I followed these instructions, found the passage and the cake, and even got outside safely!

Watch this for instructions:

And here is another link that shows a different Easter Egg (with GMan walking through the place!).

Have fun. Other Easter Eggs too shown on You Tube.

Totally. They have added radios throughout the game that you have to not only find, but you get closer to getting their latest mysterious achievement. The sound files are either in morse code or just strange noises. If you run the sounds through a SSTV program you'll get Aperture Science picture clues too! People over at Steam's forum have been decoding it very well. Decoding the big message is something that can't really be done by just one person.

Valve is up to something.

***Update***

The ending to portal has changed. You don't have to play the entire game over again to watch it either. I'll put the code in a spoiler tag just in case some of you haven't finished the game.

Click here to view/hide a spoiler.
Make sure you have developer console working (you can turn it on under advanced settings in your keyboard settings tab) and type the following:

map escape_02
