A modder by the name of Eugenio “Motanum” Roman has created a new map for Team Fortress 2. ‘Koth Aperture Science’ is based around Portal and the setting is the Aperture Science Labs familiar to any players of Valve’s classic puzzle-platformer of 2007.
The object of the game for the Red team is to defend GLaDOS’s room for 3 minutes, while the Blue team spawns outside in a helicopter with the objective of taking it over. ‘Koth Aperture Science’ took 3 months to complete and is now available on TF2 maps as a 34mb download.
From the modder:
Koth Aperture Science is the milestone the work of 3 months with the knowledge of 2 years in hammer! I believe it is the Good bye our precious Portal 1 deserve, a game to remember, in TF2.
In koth Aperture Science Red and Blu will fight for the Hand Held Portal Gun Technology. I know, it is too early to be canon for either TF2 or Portal (Even Half-Life) but I thought it was a neat cross over.
I’ve seen many people jump into making Portal 2 style maps, but as I mentioned, this map is a result of portal 2 hype, but nonetheless, an appreciation for Portal. Thus, this is my best work so far. I was very picky and I think I did a fair job, with many feature to celebrate the power of TF2 and the beauty of Portal.
Thanks, PC Gamer.
