Description
Release date: June 25 2015
Portal Stories: Mel is an upcoming free to play mod based in the Portal universe.
It tells an entirely new story about a new protagonist called Mel who travels with a new personality core and faces a new, still unknown threat.

In the early years of Aperture: Science Innovators, Cave Johnson’s scientists rushed to get everything working to catch up with the growth of the company. Not everything worked as it should have. Mel unfortunately took part in a faulty test called the Aperture: Science Innovators Short-Term Relaxation Vault, falling asleep for years. Now, with a fake Cave Johnson telling her she needs to escape the facility and a new device called the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, her mind races with questions. “Who is this imposter Cave Johnson?” “What happened to the facility and its staff?”

"What happened to me?"
