Welcome to the Aperture Science Enrichment Program!

Hello. It's been a long time.

Cave Johnson here. At Aperture Science we're very proud of our previous Portal product, critically acclaimed as a small but perfect nugget. So this time around we made a new short set of perfect puzzle chambers and then destroyed them so we could shred the set pieces, mix some new stuff in and reassemble it, cutting out all the perfect parts. We invite you to test our Portal 2 program with either PC, Mac, PS3 or Xbox 360 technology - right now! You'll soon discover why we got the game contract from Valve over Black Mesa. Those folks will never get Episode 3 out the door.

The Map Editor SDK program is open for testing! Think you're better than us at creating test opportunities! Ha! We'd like to see you try!
You can find some custom maps over here. We do not however under any circumstance guarantee the quality you'd expect from Aperture Science.

The lab boys tell me I should remind you that the co-op test campaign can be played cross-platform with test participants using either PC, Mac or PS3 equipment. We're showcasing some of our newest inter-Steam and PSN technology in our latest enrichment program.
If you're part of the control group using Xbox 360 equipment you should know you can only test with other Xbox 360 technology test groups. We had to separate the groups after test participants showed signs of throwing chairs and chanting the same word over and over again. If you still find yourself throwing chairs and chanting we claim no responsibility and you should seek medical help immediately.

Aperture Investment Opportunities
If you have money there's no better place than to invest it than Aperture Science. Your money is safe with us and we have determined these Investment Opportunity videos will convince you. Get those cheques ready:

Comic & Soundtrack
Bed-time stories are for wimps. Unless they're Aperture Laboratories certified comics. The Portal 2: Lab Rat comic is now available and will help you raise better children.
http://www.thinkwithportals.com/comic/. It's proven with science.

Over at our music page you can download the original soundtrack. For free! But for now only vol 1 out of 3.
We're also conducting additional tests to play some of these files when your phone is ringing. If you feel as if people are staring at you when this occurs, the lab boys tell me this is completely normal and part of the test procedure.

You might have learned of our testing program thanks to our ARG advertisement campaign. You can learn more about the ARG campaign here.


Finding Co-Op Testing Associates
Some of you might have arrived on your own without a partner for the Co-op Testing Initiative. Leave your name here and check out the list of other testing associates.
PSN Testers can co-operate with Steam testers once they bind their PS3 to their Steam account.
To see who has or hasn't completed co-op you can check the achievements
Spoiler:

Post-test completion extras
If you're one of the fine gentlemen or gentleladies who have already completed the test program you may be interested in the following material, available in the lobby.
Spoiler:


So to wrap up, we provide you with:
  • Single-player campaign. Got everything you'd want: story, characters, tests.
  • Co-op campaign. Less story, up to two test subjects, tests of varying difficulty.
  • In-game microtransaction store with silly stuff that in no way will influence the test program. If the inclusion of the Robot Enrichment Center aggravates you, you passed the test. Congratulations.
    Posting 0-score reviews means you failed the test. The good news is however that means you are invited to join our new Spiky Smasher test program. This is not voluntarily.

Actually this test program is so enriching you should be paying us instead. You should get to that right now.



I look forward to your contribution to science!


Cave Johnson! We're done here.

    If you haven't finished Single Player yet, avoid visiting Destructoid. One of their editors thought it was an excellent idea to post the ending of the game on the front page three days after release.

    Beat the game in about 11 hours, counting two crashes. Haven't done the co-op missions yet, but I enjoyed the game a lot. Still, $50 is a lot of money for this.

    As a side note, the ending song was at least as good as Portal 1's.

    I think that'd defeat the point of having portals to be honest. I can't think of any compelling puzzles they could make with that, outside of "just doing it for the sake of doing it." In which case you are removing portals from the equation which kind of defeats the purpose.

    I dunno, I can think of a few situations where it'd be interesting. Particularly if it had some weakness, such as dissolving 45 seconds after it's been applied.
