Go Play Portal Stories: Mel, the Free, Unofficial Portal Installment
Fans are crushing it
Portal Stories: Mel is an fan-made mod by Prism Studios that covers the story between Valve’s Portal and Portal 2 featuring female tester, Mel and it’s amazing. The synopsis:
1952, in the early years of Aperture: Science Innovators, Cave Johnson’s scientists experimented with whatever they wanted. Not everything worked as it should have though, but that wasn’t going to get in the way of the progress of Science! Mel unfortunately took part in a faulty test called the Aperture: Science Innovators Short-Term Relaxation Vault, falling asleep for years. When she finally wakes, there is a fake Cave Johnson telling her she needs to escape the facility and a new device called the Aperture Handheld Portal Device, her mind races with questions. “Who is this imposter Cave Johnson?” “What happened to the facility and its staff?”
Mel is pretty amazing and thorough from the storyline to the gameplay. From all the voices, a custom soundtrack, and 22 levels that are super challenging it’s definitely a treat for fans.
I’m seeing a bunch of reviews say that it’s on par with the official games, so Portal fans should definitely check that out! It’s on Steam and free to play with the condition that you own Portal 2.
