Here’s a video from Fearlezz, maker of Factum Solus for Portal, demonstrating his Portal 1 version of the Portal 2 funnel mechanic. Looks awesome to me.
The Eaglesg Studio (Yes, that last G is supposed to be there) have released a teaser video for their upcoming Wilson Chronicles mod. The trailer is well produced except for that completely out of place song. Compeltely ruins the whole thing. Shame. This is a perfect example of why singing should NEVER EVER be in a mod during gameplay. You’ll need to download it becasue it High Definition.
Anyway, the video is apparently from the demo, so there will be something to play for those impatient souls. I say, don’t waste time on a demo, just focus on the full release.
It’s also a shame their website of out of date. Get to it boys!
Want to make a real portal for your house? Well, The King 91, show you how, on the Swedish website Game Reactor. I would think you just need to angle the mirror, slightly away from the wall, to look a little more authentic. Please don’t try jumping through them!
Tail is a short surreal adventure game that explores the moral decisions of the player by invoking particular emotions through interesting back-story and plot revealed by a series of curious events and discoveries….
It’s very early days yet but it’s nice to see mods like this in production. This week’s ATC header image comes from this mod. More details on its ModDB profile.
Now this looks mighty interesting. A simple “copy and paste style” map editor for Portal. I haven’t had a chance to try it and I know it’s months old, but it’s new to me, so maybe you missed it too. Definitely worth a look over on ModDB.
Embermoor looks fairly interesting. Plenty of team positions available, include scritp writer, which is kinda neat.
Ivan’s Secrets is slowly developing into a fantastic looking mods, well worth following. This August update shows a lot of work being done. Keep up the good work guys!
Hazard Team (Decay: Source) is new to me and it’s looking good. I suppose it’s too much to hope I’ll be able to play it on my own.
HalfLife2.net is reporting that Portal 2 is coming to GamesCom. Of course, 99.99999% of readers won’t be there, but you an be sure we’ll see the new footage.
How cool is this Half-Life barnacle sculpture? Only 150 US Dollars!
Jasper just sent this to me, moments before I published. It’s a few photgrpahs of people, mostly children, when playing video games. I am sure I look completely stupid. Telegraph.co.uk perhaps we should try taking some with our webcams?
And finally this week.
Vic asked me if I minded him writing something along the lines of my City 17 Times articles and I was more than happy to agree. Here’s his first one: The Resistance Bulletin — Special Report. There’s plenty of other great stuff over on Lambda Generation.
Have a great weekend, and don’t forgot to listen live to Podcast17.
