Portal 2 Mapping Contest

Share |

The "Portal 2" blog has been updated with the announcement of a "Summer Mapping Initiative", a mapping contest that will run from May 24 to June 6. Prizes include an Ultimate Portal 2 Gift Pack signed by the developers and coverage on the official Portal website and Thinkingwithportals.com.

"If entertainment has taught us anything—be it films; TV shows; or films for people who hate fights and explosions, books—it's that at some point in every story, the villain will tell the hero, "You know, we're a lot alike, you and I." It always sounds like a really smart thing to say to somebody, even though it's never actually true.

But now, for the first time, thinkingwithportals.com is giving you the opportunity to make it true. Show them that not only are you like GLaDOS, you're better than GLaDOS, by designing your own diabolical test chamber.

From now until June 6th, thinkingwithportals.com is accepting entries for their Summer Mapping Initiative. Test chambers will be judged on their puzzle complexity, visual appeal and tonal fidelity (50s design, contemporary design, etc.), so steeple those scheming-fingers, write some nasty passive-aggressive insults on index cards for easy reference, and show GLaDOS how it's done."

You can read all the details and rules on the official site.
