You can't get companion cube, otherwise you must accompany and protect it forever.
Luckily that was a fake, I have warehouses full of it...

I loved everything except for the part where you stole companion cube. I was really excited for companion cube.

You are an artist! btw I found the secret test :)

Incredible piece of work! Turned off help messages - sort of did not like myself for that later on :)
In the secret chamber it did not occur to me how to place the cubes so I jammed the round "cube" between another mirror cube and the block close to the laser / exit. Then spent ~30 minutes carefully placing second mirror cube on top of the round one so that it reflects the beam to the reciever... Then saw the walkthough video, felt myself dumb :)
Thank you @DaMaGepy, had lots of fun!

@DaMaGepy Sure thing, sounds great!

@Bellsniffer: The purpose of this map is to teach things, so I haven't planned it to be hard. If you want challenge, add me as friend and check my friend-only super hard unfinished map that I never published (#?), this #4 map basicall teaches 3 trick that needed there and maybe I'll finish that map after NoMoney2 :)

Awesome map, super unique ideas for sure and the secret level is really brilliant - but it really holds your hand.
There's little markers and targets and red crosses to show the player what to do, and on top of optional hints that are already there. There weren't many difficult moments in all honesty, all I had to do was scan around for some sort of symbol to tell me where to go or where to put a portal. The part in the secret chamber where you had to place a portal above you in a tunnel was especially annoying, as without the arrow a player would have used the running water as a subtle indication.
I love the map for the exploration aspect, and I'm sure a lot of people get stuck anyway, but I'd really recommend removing all the arrows and signs to make it much more challenging. If you did that then I wouldn't be surprised if this chamber hit the #1 spot on workshop, there are some great puzzles here!

I join the people to congragulate you and thanks you for all the moments I spent with your very original puzzles and specially at the end with the strange ambiance of the secret chamber.
I've done a lot and a lot of maps and now you are at the top one.
Thanks again, i'm going to try the others one.

That's some kind of GREAT work, very nice to play, not easy, a bit to think and fantastic atmosphere during the chambers. Good job, especially the hidden chamber was a nice bonus. Well done!
DaMaGepy  [author] Feb 24 @ 9:29pm 
you can spot it from the gates and portal down (as in the walkthrough youtube vid), or make a parkour through the top of the buildings (only 1 possible route) to get over the gates and then to jump/portal down...

That hidden test chamber was really, really, REALLY, out of the way. I honestly thought I broke the map when I found it. It's jus that far out of the way!

Wow, great, thx. If you want donations I suggest to sign up at flattr.com...
Gamer4Christ Jan 25 @ 7:24pm 
I figured everything out without hints on the first try, including the hidden test chamber. That being said, I thought it was FANTASTIC!!!! Great work!!!!

Exceptional map.

I started exploring the outside just after the secret. Hopping on the boxes to the left, then the pipes: You can get here, and it requires a suicide. This is how to get over there.

@DeMaGepy it worked after a couple of tries actually! managed to finish all the tests as well! Really liked the concept! keep up the good work!
DaMaGepy  [author] Jan 2 @ 1:41pm 
@laao500 it usually stays in direction 95% of the time, as it shows in the playthru video
laao500 Jan 2 @ 12:37pm 
good design however, during the third test, the cube refused to stay in the position when tilted, which made progression rather impossible
Swing's "Silky" Johnson Dec 30, 2014 @ 4:47am 
fantastic map, i really enjoyed it, tricky but not aggrivating tricky, i also LOVE that bonus puzzle, hell a whole seriers of puzzles could be designed around having a normal test and a secret test, the fun could be in finding the secret.
DigitalFruitcake Dec 6, 2014 @ 2:26am 
Really really fun. Nice and difficult, but not impossible. Really creative test design. Did manage to parkour my way around and solve your secret test though, you sly critter.
EmaSTH Dec 5, 2014 @ 8:29am 
amazing chamber :O
ubilada Nov 26, 2014 @ 11:23am 
I played the first 3 maps, yet I loved this one most so far. Just excellent work :) I had a lot of fun playing it. Especially when I found the place of the second portal surface that is inside . Time to play others!
ATLAS Nov 6, 2014 @ 11:54pm 
Nice work uploading the VMF, I'll have fun looking at that ;)
Great work with the chamber too.
ATLAS Nov 6, 2014 @ 11:53pm 
Parkour :) :)

this is my favorit of your maps, do you working on a new map?
DaMaGepy  [author] Oct 27, 2014 @ 7:51am 
parkour :)
turrets turret Oct 27, 2014 @ 1:00am 
i found a super secret plays that you say (good work parkout), what do you mean with that?
NIceGuyND Oct 19, 2014 @ 4:31pm 
Thank you! Great work! :)
vioray Oct 16, 2014 @ 8:19am 
lots of fun, the hidden test was a great addition both in having to find it and the puzzles it contained
Casvah Oct 9, 2014 @ 8:49pm 
Best of your maps! I loved the secret test chamber. You should make an entire campaign.
DaMaGepy  [author] Sep 27, 2014 @ 12:02pm 
no hard if you follow the red marks (arrow and X)
The cube floating is a portal2 bug
Old N Bitter Sep 27, 2014 @ 10:14am 
the secret room is hard and i beat it cause the cube started to randomly float...
FutureGameDev Sep 24, 2014 @ 7:53pm 
I'm impressed you found my video before I managed to get my comment in, but that doesn't matter. Your map is amazing! I can't praise it enough, and I hope it gets the fame it deserves. You already say my playthrough, but I'll leave it here incase anyone else wants to watch it. Keep up the amazing work!

very fun map, took me a while to find the secret room, but worth it!
freezer0016 Sep 23, 2014 @ 12:03pm 
Its one of the best maps i played!
DaMaGepy  [author] Sep 22, 2014 @ 3:20pm 
@jrd.vt
1. if no hint needed there and someone ask for help, the player sux :)
2. no cheating needed in room 8, check the intended solution youtube vid (above)
3. It's a training map to teach things, so guidance is needed. In the real map there will be no help
4. you completed the hidden area?
Chelliste Sep 22, 2014 @ 11:22am 
I liked this a lot. Room 8 required a bit of "cheating" (as some call it, though I don't) to continue progress. The one thing I don't care for is all the arrows and X's telling the player where to go and where to place portals. I'd rather figure out the solution for myself. Also, after beating it I went back to see the hints. It's not a hint to tell a player he sucks if he asks for a hint!
OrbitalBP Aug 25, 2014 @ 8:32am 
Best map I've played so far :)
TANK CROSSING Aug 18, 2014 @ 1:18pm 
Very good!
evilmolen Aug 14, 2014 @ 6:37am 
thanks m8, awesome idea and secret level/
Andrew Jul 30, 2014 @ 11:10am 
Amazing, great level design and every puzzle gave me a great feeling when I completed it.
Space Jul 18, 2014 @ 1:14pm 
thanks bro, very good job! Was interesting and kinda challenging

Really great job :D enjoyed new types of tests that actually puzzled me a bit!

reminds me of portal 3.

@DaMaGepy: i'm back! i herd you made pictures of... no money for chambers 2.
but i have finished the cube puzzle map. includind the secret test. and parkour.
dadipadi Jun 21, 2014 @ 7:31pm 
Yes. I am in agreement that this was a fun map. Well done with lots of details, and textures. I enjoyed the puzzles. They weren't brain melters, but they were creative. I love the extra map, because walking around the parts I thought I couldn't go to is fun, because I love to explore. Thanks for making this.
robin_z Jun 5, 2014 @ 5:34pm 
This was a lot of fun! I like some of the transition corridors with cube shapes sticking out of the wall.
