What is it about Portal that has made it such a phenomenon? It still amazes me that so much was accomplished by adding such a wonderfully smart but subtle plot to a puzzle game.
The cake is a lie, companion cubes, cute but deadly sentry bots… there’s definitely something special. Special enough that fans go out of their way to make amazing short films like this one below titled Outside Aperture, that gives us a look into the life of our beloved Chell after her experiences inside the test facility.
