Portal Stories: Mel has left testing and is now out on Steam for free

Portal Stories: Mel

Prism Studios has released their community-made, Portal Stories: Mel, on Steam today, and it’s free for everyone that owns Portal 2. The mod tells the story of Mel, who while inside the Aperture facility, discovered a new personality core that poses quite the threat.

With an estimated game length of 6-10 hours, you should probably give it a spin.

Here’s what you can expect if you take the plunge.

  • 22 levels, with an estimated gameplay time of ~6-10 hours
  • Custom Story with 350 separate in-game voicelines
  • Over an hour of custom music with the Free soundtrack included
  • Huge amount of custom assets
  • 27 steam achievements
  • Standalone mod (You do not need Portal 2 installed to play)
  • Free to Play (You must own Portal 2)
  • Logic based puzzles, not execution based puzzles

Remember, while you don’t need Portal 2 installed to play Portal Stories: Mel, you do need to own it in your library to make it work. You can grab the mod right here.
