Continued: As someone said before in the comments, this puzzle is laid out so everything is clear and you can know what each thing does. It's your fault when you spend an hour plus sulving it!

For anyone who thinks you can get stuck in the area with the fizzler (with a hint included): go to the right and aim at the laser area, you can shoot a portal from there and escape,and furthermore this fact is reused a bunch of times during the solution

So I tried this around a year ago, had no idea whatsoever how to solve it so I moved on. Came back today, took me like around an hour to solve, I really really tried my best this time. For how simple it looks this is definetely the most challenging puzzle I've came across. Throughout my playing I kept feeling really dumb for not knowing the next thing to do which seemed so simple and logical afterwards. Even with looking at hints I had lot of trouble. At the end tho I tell yeah it's one of the best feeling when you know you've finally solved it after alternating periods of thinking really hard and then just bouncing around in game feeling tired not knowing what to do. At the end I broke the like button, one of the best maps I've ever played.

Another good one. Took about 1/5 the time of the first of your chambers I stumbled across. Seems I'm beginning to get a feel for the twisted logic you employ.

@Polux that seems like a glitch that should not happen.
amieres Apr 30 @ 1:31pm 
Fantastic! Your chambers have a feeling of impossibility, yet they are solvable.

Wow. I knew I had to get the reflector cube to both buttons, but after getting it to the first one............. getting it to the second was damn tricky. Favorited.

Hint: you don't need the funnell to get the cube to the first button.

That - was - real - genius. Hint 1: Use 2 portals (no cube) as the primary way to open the funnel chamber. Hint 2: Drop off the cube in the funnel chamber. Hint 3: A cube can operate a button and a laser at the same time.

I took the opportunity to remake your map in a quite differente way :

@Polux That's the same way I beat it. Decent little puzzle.
Polux Dec 26, 2015 @ 12:30pm 
Well, interesting test chamber but I would be surprised if my solution's intended...

Polux Dec 24, 2015 @ 12:30pm 
EXCUSE ME, indeed, I'll try it again soon :)
Polux Dec 24, 2015 @ 12:19pm 
Oh, sorry maybe you can aim the wall near the laser...
Polux Dec 24, 2015 @ 12:17pm 
When you are in the funnel/laser catcher area without portals.

Can you describe it? I tested this map pretty rigorously and was never able to trap myself.
Polux Dec 24, 2015 @ 7:52am 
Hmm, it seems that there is a BIG TRAPPING situation at the laser catcher area...............

Incredible work... your maps are legendary.
tu7650x Sep 26, 2015 @ 3:53pm 
Solved!! In my sleep... or almost!! The eureka moment came while tossing and turning in bed and rolling the puzzle around in my head. Couldn't wait to get up and execute the plan in my head. Absolutely lovely puzzle Azora e. Thanks for your awesome work.
tu7650x Sep 23, 2015 @ 5:40pm 
Wow... this is a hard one... It doesn't look that hard when you first enter it but...Subbing and keeping it for a rainy day. Been at it for 2 hours and still no eureka moment yet. Bravo man, this one's a classic.

Experienced only need apply.

So simple and yet so challenging. As portal puzzles should be imo. Took me about an hour an 15 minutes. Probably one of my top favorites..

nice map, solved in less than 1 h and a lot of coffee

I enjoyed this so much, I came back and played it again the day after I solved it. I then built a tribute map to it: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=455785162 My version is a COMPLETE hat-tip to Azorae's Solitude. I have mirror-flipped the map, though, and have added one little something for those of you who would like to try this again, only a little harder. I promise, everything is still completely visible and accessible. No secrets, no surprises.

Add me to the list of people who worked on this for several days and then finally solved it. The amazing part is that there's nothing hidden; you can clearly see every element and know exactly what it does. Once you've solved it, you have nobody to blame but yourself for taking so long to figure it out. In other words, it's a perfect puzzle!
harpmangaz Apr 18, 2015 @ 7:39am 
very clever puzzle, took me over a week doing it for about half an hour each day.
pVo Apr 14, 2015 @ 12:45pm 
One of the most mind blowing maps I've ever played.
TS_Mind_Swept Mar 24, 2015 @ 2:37pm 
That Ace Ryder told me to play this, I'm going to go murder him now. 7/10
akross.cs Mar 23, 2015 @ 7:04am 
one of the best maps i've ever played. I found the key to this chamber after 7 days i first tried to play in it.
dire.fcs Nov 18, 2014 @ 2:17pm 
Ellegant!
Kuba Aug 31, 2014 @ 12:00pm 
Brilliant map. I have solved it eventually tonight after a lot of thinking.
neco May 24, 2014 @ 7:25am 
Seriously - I don't know for how many times I've tried this one now! Still unable to solve....and honestly, I have no clue.........it is very hard to resist to watch a solution vid and feel like a total idiot.......:)
What am I missing here??? No, don't say anything! Hasn't been the right stuff to distract me from my written exams............feel so stupid again......
Great mapping and obviously great puzzle!!! Thanky for mapping - One day I swear.......;)

Fantastic.

Really great map. The only thing that bothered me was the sound, had to turn off my headphones to be able to think properly, other than that it was perfect!
Almisuifre Jul 10, 2013 @ 6:55pm 
Typical kind of test refusing to give player the solution until his mind open to see how easy it was and how playful logic is ^^
Geneosis Jul 5, 2013 @ 1:14pm 
I don't get why people have problem with goo here... You are not supposed to fly over goo or even to use the funnel over it (only a bit at the end)... Good remake anyway ^^

Nice map, dude, almost felt myself extremely stupid.
kimist108 May 16, 2013 @ 7:14pm 
Nasty goo. Glad I played the Original first. Solved that one the not-intended way. But, it helped me with this one, once I got over the goo. :)
Ricardo Rodriguez May 6, 2013 @ 4:48am 
This is the most difficult chamber I've tried. I gave up and watched part of a solution video, and still couldn't solve. I had to watch the whole video twice. It's so simple once you know the solution, but it would have taken me so long to figure it out.
baphomet Apr 21, 2013 @ 10:13am 
Having solved this one I now realize I solved the original one incorrectly. (The goo does make a huge difference.) Even more of a triumph!
zazaza Mar 31, 2013 @ 9:44am 
Holy grandmother of mindfuck, this was one of the hardest maps I've ever completed! It took me hours now to finally complete it, and I've struggled with it several times before, with no luck. What I don't understand is how the hell is this only 4/5 and only 181 ratings? Anyways, thank you for the top quality challenge, and I hope you'll continue making these amazing maps.
da_adesso_tabjones2 Mar 20, 2013 @ 7:50am 
A masterpiece. Amazing.

Briliant puzzle. Great design. Highly recommended map. Due to quality I need to check out more of your releases. Many thanks for tremendous work

This may very well be the most difficult map I've played, and yet it is also one if the simplest. This work of genius deserves thousands more subscribers.
hannoman, the paper tiger Jan 30, 2013 @ 5:34pm 
Woah, HOLY SHIT. I hereby name Solitude the queen of portal maps (so far ;))! Great job!!! Personal difficulty: 5/5 of course, atm it feels like it was the hardest ever (and i solved all of Mevious'). I think this could serve as a prime example, how complex portal 2 can get with only a few elements. I normally dont give much on custom art, but Solitude definitively deserves it! :)
Keep it up!

Incredible!!! My brain is exploding

Yeah, you and Mevious are amazing. I discovered Mevious first, but I'm so glad I follow two very good authors.
