We show off some screenshots from Portal 2's first couple of test chambers
Cube, button, portal — everything you need for a good time at Aperture Science.
After you wake up from a (rather long) nap, things have changed quite a bit.
If you're stuck at work until 5PM, and can't get home to play Portal 2 — even if you've got [[artnid:383729|an early copy]] — feast your eyes on a couple of screenshots from the game's first 10 minutes. We put ourselves through the strenuous exercise of playing the game mere seconds after it was released, purely for your sake: you'll get to see the game's opening scenes, as well as a few snippets from some early test chambers.
"This is art."
When you start the game, you're greeted with the friendly — if slightly dilapidated — vista of your living quarters.
The second Aperture Science test chamber is a little overgrown. But, everything is otherwise in order.
The most direct exit is through this rather sturdy wall. We won't spoil how you make it through...
A knock on the door reveals your new friend — [[xref:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWQasZbjy_I|it's Wheatley!]]
Your living quarters in Portal 2.
Wheatley's approach to fixing things is apparently to move your entire living quarters out of harm's way.
Slightly down the track is the first test chamber. Does this look familiar at all?
Portal 2's main menu screen.
We won't spoil the rest of the game, but we hope you've enjoyed taking a quick look at the first few levels of Portal 2. Now get home and play it!
Wheatley shares a little information about your current... predicament.
...but not before accidentally knocking it around a little.
...but suffice to say you end up in a slightly damaged chamber, eerily similar to one that Portal players will be familiar with from the first game.
It may look mostly the same, but time hasn't been kind to the Aperture Science laboratories.
It's a bit dark and gloomy here. Are those [[xref:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kyc4JK24EuI|panels]] we can see on the walls?
A quick trip through an Aperture Science Material Emancipation Grid later, and you're presented with a lift to take you to the next chamber.
