Valve will be releasing free down loadable content called the “Perpetual Testing Initiative” on May 8th which allow gamers to build their own test chambers in Portal 2. I loved both the Portal games and this is awesome news (probably not for people who already know how to “Mod” games and have already made hundreds of new levels but for idiots with no technical know-how like me).

According to kotaku:

Valve says you’ll be able to “easily create, share, and play Portal 2 puzzles” with the new DLC, which lets you publish maps directly to Steam. Other players will be able to browse, vote, and download user-created maps to play in their own versions of the game.

The only catch is that it’s only available for the Mac and PC (which leaves me out of the loop as I play all my games on an Xbox360). Still, that’s maybe for the best. I’m not that imaginative so most of my test chambers would probably end up looking like this………

“Ha, good luck figuring out how to escape this room”

Or I’d go mad and make it so hard that I’d never be able to complete it…….

“Hundreds of Turrets, and if you move at all, they kill you”

Honestly, I’d be worse than Wheatley but I’d still like to see what people came up with.
