Portal 3 - Time Travel Portals?

#1NettoSaitoPosted 4/26/2011 10:01:03 PM
So there's been a lot of "what should the next game have" topics, but I don't think I never saw this really brought up. Anyway how would you feel if they added in some type of time travel in the next portal game? Such as say you have to make your way through a city BUT keys to the puzzle are missing in your current time.

Like say there's a button that needs to be pressed but there's no cube to hold it down. The cube can be found in another time but there's no way to get up to the ledge its on in that time era, so you have to use a type of portal to go to ANOTHER time, use portals to get up on the ledge, go back to the time the cube is at, then bring it through a portal to the present to put it on the switch.

Really if you think about it, a lot of advanced puzzles could be made if they added in "time travel portals." From sending lasers into different time eras to hit different switches, to using different times to get to places you normally couldn't get to. It would be a new type of challenge and most likely a fun one!

So what do you all think?

"Alright this next test may involve trace amounts of time travel. So, word of advice: If you meet yourself on the testing track, don't make eye contact. Lab boys tell me that'll wipe out time. Entirely. Forward and backward. So do both of yourselves a favor and just let that handsome devil go about his business."

That could be awesome! I hope they give it a try.

The next one will probably be a crossover with Half Life 2, since they presumably take place in the same universe.

Hm maybe I don't remember the trace amounts because I saw my future/past self and they stopped me from doing something so it didn't happen so I forgot the event ever happened just because it actually didn't happen since we are now in a different timeline than when it happened in. That's why it didn't happen even though it did. Yeah.

Actually, believe it or not, while you were playing that level, the game was recording all of your movements and saving it to Steam Cloud. Once Portal 3 comes out, there will be a point in the game when you come to that test chamber and witness your past self solving it.

You do realise they had to dumb down Portal 2? Imagine how much harder time traveling would be.

i know vavle will do a portal 3 but with total different storyline. They can't just let Portal this unique game go away forever
