Community Test Chamber Video Creation Thread
Hello everyone, I am going to start up a simple system for getting test chambers some advertisement and to give the creators other benefits, benefits vary by use of the video.

How does this work? You may ask, and the answer is rather simple. All you have to do is send me a link to your public test chamber, I will play through it and if I enjoy the level I will create a video for it which you are free to do whatever you wish with it once uploaded.

There is however some notable guidelines to consider before sending your chambers to me.
  • Your puzzle must be single player (If it is a test chamber with a co-op and single player version I will only do the single player version.)
  • Your puzzle must be a single level, you can send in collections but only expect one or two out of it.
  • Your puzzle must be possible to complete in 5 minutes or less.
  • You MUST be the creator of the test chamber to send it to me. If you play a test chamber that you believe should be uploaded then contact the creator to send it to me.
  • Do not expect a speedruns from me because I am not an Aperture Trained Specialist.
  • Something I would like to inform you of is that I am pretty busy on weekdays and on some can not get any progress on them so if you submit your chamber on a Sunday or a weekday please be patient.

Keeping that in mind feel free to send me your test chambers.

My Youtube channel can be found here.

Thank you for reading and have a good day.

*If your test is not on this list I either haven't gotten it or I am not going to make the video, however I will almost always make the video unless there is a specific problem I notify you of.*

I'd love to get a playthrough of this.

It is fun, it looks cool, and it is easy enough to be finished in 5 minutes without being too easy.

Thanks for the first suggestion. I have made the video for it which can be found at: http://youtu.be/JHwcrFY9XaU

Here's one of mine.
It's quite hard, so If you need help add me as a friend and I'll walk you through it.

Half of the fun is solving it myself :) I will get to work on this one tomorrow.

By being able to he completed in 5 minutes or less, I hope you don't mean blind. In which case, feel free to try my map.

I have one thats 60's themed (i think) though i can't really remember exaclty its the older cave johnson type anyway...... http://store.steampowered.com

Thank you for doing the playthrough!

Unforunatly, there is one area that you did different then it was supposed to.
The problem is I was gonna add this as a playthrough video to the map. So, I was wondering if you would replay it once I have fixed it. Since you've already figured out most of it, it shouldn't take very long.

I would like to create a video for yours and it seems like a good test but there is a loud sound I am constantly hearing that is making it difficult for me to even think.

That's a nice gesture of you for doing this. You have our thanks! I think you'll get a kick out of this one. People playing it think it's fun.

This is a very gracious service you are offering here. I will submit one that many enjoyed so I presume and hope you will also.

Nice initiative ^^ Some friends already use to record some videos of my maps so that I can add them as playthrough of the levels... But as I made a lot of map, one more guy to record will always help ;)
So as I said I would like to have playthrough for almost all my maps, but I will propose you only the ones that need it the most (because other players don't get the idea for exemple). But first, I would like to know what kind of level you prefer (Skill maps / Logical maps / Fun maps?) to propose to you puzzle you may enjoy ^^

I enjoy all forms of maps. I never really had a kind that I preferred but I generally like clever maps that use the editor in a unique and special way that once I finish the test weather a logical or entertaining one I can still remember it to be unique and special.
