[Video Games] Collaborative Lego Portal project.

Postby Lego junkie » Tue Jun 19, 2012 12:31 am

As some of you have seen from the teasers that we posted last week, Team Jigsaw (Lego Junkie, 55555, Arkov and myself) had been working on a LEGO Portal project for Cuusoo. Sadly Cuusoo considers Portal an innappropriate license for unspecified reasons, and although we tried numerous forms of contact we were unable to appeal this decision.

We didn't know this until we tried to submit the project, so we're left with a polished piece of work even though it's not possible to get supporters for it. So here are the results of our work, enjoy!

Make your very own Test Chamber out of LEGO, in any way that you want! First build the modular frame to the dimensions you choose, and then fill the walls and floor with tiles, platforms, buttons and more! Finally, add accessories such as turrets, cubes, small buttons, signs, cameras and most importantly, test subjects!

Includes four minifigures, Chell and 3 Aperture Science Sentry Turrets.
Completely modular design allows you to redesign the chamber for different tests.
Solve button puzzles with the Weighted Storage Cube, or dodge the laser sights of an array of turrets!
Use the 4 different pattern tiles to create any 2 digit number for the level sign.
Discover a hidden Ratman den behind the testing chamber walls.
Standard Testing Chamber arrangement is over 10" (25cm) long, 5" (12cm) deep and 6" (15cm) tall!
Combine multiple Modular Testing Chamber sets and your own module designs for unlimited variations. The possibilities are endless!
Parts Count: ???

I hope some of this gets built into actual models for BrickCon 2012, because Catsy has something similar but not designed specifically for Cuusoo in the works. Is that Glados designed to be build with existing parts?

Actually, GLaDOS was built in the real brick before being rendered by Brickthing.

I never bothered to take pictures because I figured the renders would do her justice.
As for BrickCon, I'm not too sure. Neither BrickThing or myself plan on attending, so we would be forced to ship the models in to Catsy before the convention, and have him ship them back afterwards.

It may be too crazy too actually work out, but we could give it a try!

Any possibility on even partial building instructions for GlaDOS. She is amazing well designed. Everything looks fantastic.
