Portal 2

Valve – 2011

Futuristic space with red rays from the first-person perspective

As in the previous game, »Portal 1«, the players of »Portal 2« take on the role of the young woman named Chell.

She will be brought back to the partially destroyed Aperture Science Enrichment Center. However, this time the center is an even more dangerous place. The artificial intelligence, GLaDOS, which controls the entire center, was only damaged in the previous game, »Portal 1«, but not destroyed, and Chell is not exactly feeling friendly. The task of the players is to solve a series of puzzles in the form of test chambers. The ASHPD (Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device), a device that can be used to create portals between different dimensions, helps here. Through these portals, players can teleport themselves or objects.
