    The new green portal seems to be a past-future mechanic, that will allow you to open a portal to a future iteration of the test chamber and play with time. I'm a real fan of Portal Mods, and if we get a fresh game out of it, I'm pretty happy.

    Interesting, they say "wishlist now" at the end, it has a proper Steam page and such but no price so far? Is this just how you distribute mods, nowadays? Will this be a commercial release?

      If you scroll down a bit to the genres section on the right-hand side it says "Action, Free To Play". The Q&A on their website also answers it:

      Is this game really free?

      Yes. As long as you own a copy of Portal 2, you can simply download Portal Reloaded from the Steam store once it releases on April 19th.

      As I understand it, there's some legacy options for Valve games to set up your mod with its own page instead of Steam Workshop. I believe it's going to be a free release since similar experiences...

      It's sad, too, because there's essentially no technical reason you couldn't; Sony and MS simply don't want to make that possible.

        Sony less than MS, I'd say. Bethesda brought third-party Skyrim mods to Xbox. They tried to do the same on Playstation but Sony severely neutered the scope of what they could do. I love gaming on Playstation, however that decision really irritated me. Part of me still hopes Skyrim will get ported (yet again) to PS5 and Sony will reverse that decision so I can finally join the fun.

        Yes, I still play Skyrim often... 😁

    Count me in. If it winds up at all being like Portal Stories Mel, long dev time and crazy level design, it may turn out to actually be one of those worth buying.

      Per their website:

      Per their website:

      Will Portal Reloaded be released on other platforms?

      Probably not. At least not at launch. Portal Reloaded will only run on Windows based systems for the foreseeable future. Why is that? It comes down to logistics. I am a solo developer and therefore simply do not have the time or resources to manage different versions of the game on different platforms.

        That's unfortunate since the macOS version already supports user-created content. Bummer.

          They also have this: So maybe it can be patched in?

          They also have this:

          Will there be a SDK?

          No. Everything new in Portal Reloaded is achieved through scripting only. No changes to the source code were made. If interest exists, there will be tutorials on how to create your own maps for Portal Reloaded after release.

          So maybe it can be patched in?
