The Winter Testing Initiative

A new testing course has arrived just in time for the holiday season! Can you make it through the five festive tests GLaDOS has in store for you?

~We strongly recomend playing this map in high shader detail, as certain custom textures will not look as good with lower settings.

~There is an extra special secret hidden in the map....read the signs carefully to find it!

~Difficulty: Hard
~Estimated Time: 40 minutes - 2 hours

Q: I can't solve (insert puzzle number here)!
A: A video walkthrough is avalaible on this page.
Q: How long did the map take to make?
A: Seven months.
Q: How did you get the test chamber/map to look like this?
A: Hammer World Editor (also known as Portal 2 Authoring Tools Beta). Keep in mind most the holiday models and textures are custom made and unavalaible to the public however!
Q: Will the team be doing any other holiday maps?
A: None are planned at this time.
Q: Can you give me <insert custom texture or model here>?
A: To keep these custom elements special, and to respect all the effort the creator's put into them, they will not be released for public use.

Quite difficult, but I loved the level designs and the custom textures. I had to use a walkthrough for about half of this.

Damn, it was very hard! I need the video just for the end, I was going crazy!One hour to finish! Well done!

This technically not my map, the puzzles are by others, I just detailed/fixed it and made the ending area... I was also not happy with the last test, but Josepezdj likes to create hard puzzles... I couldnt solve it even after watched a walkthrough video :)

I think the worst part is that I've upvoted every other DaMaGepy map, so I thought this would make a full set.

I have yet to find a walkthrough of the last chamber where they don't noclip or have a suspicious speedup or timeskip. So the last chamber is unreasonable at best, impossible at worst. I felt sure I was going to happily upvote this map, but between this and the refusal to release the textures, I'm downvoting instead.

I didn't want to feel like an idiot today, but here I am now.

Excellent map, by the way!

Wonderful puzzle and brilliant design. All parts where great, but the last one was the one I liked the most :)
