Very good multi-solution map, Nobi-Knobi! I have a Youtube series where I play through Portal 2 custom maps, and I featured this map in my most recent episode. Here's the link if you want to see it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lGnYmUrGWs

I enjoyed this map so much that I've decide to cover the rest of the Curious Chamber maps in the coming weeks. I hope you think I did your map justice, and if there're any other maps you've made that you'd like me to feature in the series, please let me know. I'd be happy to take a look :)

you're a funny person...
i restarted the level just to be sure i wasn't losing my mind

Concept demo. Very easy.

@nobi-knobi sure, i was just a little bit self ironic here, because I didn't get it it was the end of the chamber, therefore my comment.

@ doc_ds: But you still got that it's a series of maps, that fit into each other doc? :D
@ Neuen: Hm, download works for others, may that day was buggy?
doc_ds Jan 6, 2014 @ 1:28pm 
Can you add at least an elevator cut scene, because I've just spinned around when I saw the wall after exit! :)
Neuen Dec 23, 2013 @ 8:07pm 
"An error occurred while downloading this map" Can you republish please? :)

This test is broken, you can just put a portal at the funnel and then one at the exit and the door just opens.

I think the "you're trapped" thing is a bit hasty in its judgement; I've gotten an extra cube when I did not in fact need one. I also didn't understand the last chamber at all - why was there the pressure button at all? However, it was very enjoyable, and the button switch-up scared me :P

Instead of Lasers, Perhaps a rotating wall. But a multi solution chamber is always good.

Hey guys, just finished making my very first Test Map, and would love some feedback.

that first part is a mind f#ck

Very "curious," all right, in a really fun way. The diagonally cut glass reminded me of a set from a James Bond movie (Diamonds Are Forever, in partictular).

I didn't love the sudden instant death, but that's why I F6 a lot.

I can't wait to play the other "Curious" levels. Thanks!

I successfully got myself stuck. Thanks for the spare cube ^_^

nice but v simple

Simple and fun test. Didn't stump me and I know what you did to change the rooms around (world portals), so it was nice enough. Wish it was longer though, kinda felt like it should've been.
Tony Mar 16, 2013 @ 6:26pm 
lazer disable is optional :)
Knockout Mouse Dec 30, 2012 @ 1:20pm 
Sweet! I've played around with Hammer a bit, but never thought to use world portals quite that way. (I assume that's what you used anyway) That was unique and fun.
Gouldron Dec 11, 2012 @ 11:07am 
The first chamber FREAKED me out! First i thought it was simple, and it was, but creepy when the pressure place changed to a button...
krylion Nov 21, 2012 @ 4:52am 
That was great. Mostly I liked how you changed the orientation and gravity. How did you do that? It's great…
Nobi-Knobi  [author] Nov 15, 2012 @ 1:04pm 
Well, thats the correct Solution.. :D But most ppl skip the az0r part :P I should update this with the Laz0rs a bit higher, then the only possibility to solve it would be the one you did :D thx ;)

Same with Cysiek. It was a tad funny chamber though :)
theOfficePortal Sep 28, 2012 @ 11:40pm 
Amazing map. If possible to fix the issue with turning the lasers off (likely just moving them up) would be much better). You're maps overall are some of the best out there.
SuperParadox Sep 23, 2012 @ 4:33pm 
Very easy but cool
Cysiek Sep 10, 2012 @ 2:04pm 
In the end wasn't necessary to disable lasers.
Mathey2009 Aug 28, 2012 @ 5:04pm 
Awesome map here, keep it up!
Thanks for this map, I enjoyed it very much!
Want to try out the hardest map in the worshop?
For all of those who were waiting for my newest map (and for all of those who are new to my maps),here's a link to my newest map called "Cubelessness 2":
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=89526264
- Testing: Fizzlers/Cubes/Buttons/Funnels and their applications in the field of science.
- Difficulty: Hard-Very Hard
- Estimated time to complete: between 5 minutes and 1 hour.
If you know the first part of this map ("Cubelessness": http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=78146075) then you will find this second part even better, it is harder and more elegant, with no fancy tricks or unconventional methods here.
Thanks again

I don't know if it's meant to be like this but in the last chamber you don't actually need to press the button to deactivate the lasers, just put one portal on the grav lift and one on the floor under the lasers and just jump into the beam other than that though it's good, played 1+2 off to play number 3 now (:
Racortesl Aug 18, 2012 @ 9:07am 
The first room was hard.. Like it
Spooky Aug 3, 2012 @ 5:00pm 
Okay. Found the 'Curious' series after playing the EXCELLENT diversity vents chambers. You, Sir, know how to create a superb testing experience. Many plaudits and salutations. Good Science!

The first room fucked my mind in a good way
You have my attention sir
mikemoody Jul 23, 2012 @ 7:30pm 
Nice job Nobi-Knobi. I needed the cube to turn off the lazer beams, and then shot a portal hole under the exit, then went back to the "bullseye drop" and fell right up to the door. . Thanks for a good map.
AGC | Quarks Jul 21, 2012 @ 10:15am 
i skipped the last part too because i am retarded :D
^1[Magnum] Jul 14, 2012 @ 12:11pm 
Nice map
Metalfluff Jun 29, 2012 @ 2:08pm 
Agree with ravenmorke. First I didn't even realise that I could need a cube at all.... Solved it without even thinking...
Ravenmorke Jun 23, 2012 @ 8:33pm 
Good map but there's an error in the end...I've solved the map without putting the cube on the last button
Mathey2009 Jun 21, 2012 @ 4:44pm 
Awesome map, keep it up.
Heres a link to my workshop maps you should try them out:

great map. Quite unexpected. Keep up the good work.
Majicman444 Jun 16, 2012 @ 4:20pm 
very clever maps get stuck watch me fail through them

Igor Jun 15, 2012 @ 2:52pm 
These unexpected room and gravity change were surprising! However, the chamber was just too easy and I think that there is a bug. In the final part I didn't have to put the cube at the button at all, I just levitated myself near the bridge next to the exit and it pulled out automatically.
drkamikaze Jun 15, 2012 @ 12:21pm 
this mindfucked me so much
Fravit Jun 14, 2012 @ 12:39pm 
Whoa, it's like some kind of MC Escher chamber.
PsychoBR Jun 14, 2012 @ 4:47am 
I aggle with @tothemyers.
Very fun chamber! Thumbs up!
[Play my maps. Very fun]
Sourec Jun 12, 2012 @ 4:44pm 
The end part is darn easy. You can skip the button and cube entirely by taking getting the funnel in a portal, putting the other portal under the lasers, then jumping into the beam. The button should open the door, not deactivate the lasers!.
george.gimp Jun 10, 2012 @ 3:55pm 
I like this map! Good work! (I don't agree with Stealth551, items in this map did surprise me.) My one criticism is that there should be something more than an arrow pointing up to show that if you are thrown into the air, the platform will come down and support you. I kept looking for a switch or an activator. Maybe an icon with a person going up and the platform coming down? Keep up the good work!!!
Michael Sexiest Jackson Jun 6, 2012 @ 10:49pm 
Nice :) Very fun :) i love it!
Backgrounds' Jun 2, 2012 @ 2:24pm 
Nothing in this map serprised me. DO SOMETHING MORE DIFFICULT!
