Good Lord, I got it.

Edited by Sjupp

Gz! Excited to see what this will be.

Edit: Well I can see it's from the same creator. Didn't look that interesting though.

It kind of grates me how similar to Portal it is. They could have at least added some kind of hud just to make it stand out from Portal a little bit. If you told me it's a mod for Portal I'd believe you.
 
I wonder if it runs on Source.

More Puzzles!

Online

Oh my, that's a Power-Glove look-a-like.

Bad-ass.

Posted by Alphazero

The puzzles in Portal were great, but it wasn't the just the puzzles that made it one of my favorite games of all time and forever. Hopefully they captured the rest of the magic somehow.

Solve puzzles and find my uncle? Why uncle? I don't care about my uncle.

Posted by hagridore

Looks brilliant.

Posted by eccentrix

I hope I never make something so good that all my future projects are compared to it.

Posted by metalsnakezero

So instead of cubes its safes?

Posted by thedevilbat

That looks like some portal mod. But that game was pretty fun, so maybe it'll be alright. Feeling pretty whatever about it right now though.

Posted by Vexxan

Always in the mood for some puzzling.

this reminds me of those flash games , like shift or watever the name is ..oh wait...."project shift" in the thumbnail blueprint , duh for me then .

Didn't Valve pick up the original Portal team? How did this guy/girl end up at Squeenix?

Posted by Dooftastic

Can't stand the art style. Reminds too much of a student project.

Posted by Besetment

This looks like a downloadable kids title. The terrible music isn't helping the trailer either. Still, I'm willing to see more of what this game is about.

Posted by DonPixel

It doesn't look that hot, could be awessome thou.

Solve the puzzles!

Wait is that Chuck Bartowski narrating?

The ending shows you finally finding out your Uncle was in all those safes the whole time.

I guess it's a rip off of Portal in the same way that Bioshock is a rip off of System Shock 2...

They weren't slaves or anything, she struck out on her own after succeeding in hopes of a bigger paycheck, a better title, or more creative control over projects. It happens all the time. Kinda like how the Stamper Bros took off after MS bought Rare.

Narrator, style, and story seem meh, but I'm on board for some good Portal-esque first person puzzle action.

I bet that this game will be super short ... 3h, 4h tops.
Posted by Jolt92

Looks.... I don't know.

Posted by McShank

I will buy as it looks like portal...maybe not day one but i will buy it.. i only hope the dialogue is good otherwise its just a puzzle game which would not be very fun.

They've said 4-6 hours.

I thought this was Valve

Posted by ghostNPC

Absolutely terrible art direction.

Posted by temmink

@onan: My point was that if they had been picked up for Portal I'm sure Valve would have given them plenty of room to come up with good ideas and considering this seems like Portal with a slightly different mechanic it is odd that someone would have jumped to another publisher/developer. It's just odd, not wrong or bad or whatever you seem to think I was implying...

It gives off a portal vibe more from Portal 2, which had a lot of new gameplay mechanics. She left after Portal 1, so in fairness, this game is pretty different from what she was doing. If anything, this game is probably more like Crysis in that you shift your abilities to other things. You've got the bullet time thing, the super strength thing, etc. It's also got a bit of a Psychonauts aesthentic, in that things are cute, but twisted.

As for your assumption, would they? They went from making Portal 1 to Portal 2. Presumably, they're going to go on to make Portal 3. She already had the recognition for being the lead on one of the most well received games in recent memory, sticking around wasn't going to make that any more impressive. If she was going to leave, that was the time to go and write her own check. Plus, she may have had issues with her coworkers, who can say? She left ultimately because she found something that was better for her, whatever the logic. I got that you were trying to say it was odd and not anything wrong/bad, I was just clarifying how not odd at all it was.

I think a better question to ask is why David Jaffe abandoned ship on God of War in order to go on and make Calling All Cars. That right there is a real mystery.

Looks like a safe bet.

That makes no sense. 
 
1. BioShock looks completely different to System Shock 2, they show no visual simularities and don't really play like each other at all.
 
2. BioShock was created by the same developer that made System Shock 2... (Irrational)
 
So I would say it's quite different.

companion safes.

Game sounds interesting enough, but this was a terrible trailer. Like it didn't even want to try to be interesting.

This.

The trailer didn't make much sense at all. And it wasn't interesting enough to watch twice so you could make sense into what all the color-codes meant. The only one I picked up was that black/white was gravity low/off.

Take a look at the Kim Swift-lead introduction video posted earlier. How many trailers actually make any sense?

Very Portal-esque, but you can at least see the influence of the other games on this new one.  Looks more like an evolution of the ideas of Portal rather than a new IP, but looks neat either way.

Instead of companion cubes, companion vaults??

At least when Valve made it, it looked nice. This looks like it was built to run on the iPad.

Its the Nintendo Power Glove!

Reminds me of Despicable Me for some reason...

Portal with an alternate dimension, could we put some braid in it? Opening portals in 5-dimensions to solve puzzles sounds so fun...

Posted by Zidane_24

Good lord, does this man do science in some kind of safe factory?

Posted by Tarsier

this game is really stupid and its sad that she left valve to make it. you'd think she would have come up with something original rather than just make portal for kids (without portals)..
what a sadness.
maybe its a good thing she left though. if this is what she makes on her own without the influence of valve then i guess theyre better off.
