What in the chirp was that?
Seriously - my brain is inside out now. It looks like you're supposed to go through those flaming holes holding a love cube in front of you while shooting things at random and sending electricity out your nose.
Hmmm... pope again. Decree: Describe that portal 2 thing coherently and meaningfully in as few words as possible, as part of a post about other things.
It would seem we have a newcomer to the portal continuum. Allow me to explain things as best as possible:
- The main mechanic of the game is the "Flaming holes," a.k.a. portals. One is orange, the other is blue - go in one, come out the other. Simple as that. It makes a lot more sense if you play the game yourself, believe me. Oh, and you also retain your momentum when doing so, hence the wildly flying across the room.
- Cubes facilitate puzzles. Most portal-style puzzles involve getting one or more cubes from one place to another, usually a button of some kind. The "love cube" is a companion cube, which is passed off in the first game as a sentient amigo and is heavily implied to be the center of one of the side characters' crazed fantasies. It's sort of a meme.
- The "shooting" and "electricity" comes from the Portalgun, or Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device - the machine that creates the portals. It sends balls of mystical energy when you click which happen to create portals when they hit the wall. It's science
- The crazed man talking nonsense at the beginning of the video is Cave Johnson. He owns the place
. He's talking about alternate universes because of the Perpetual Testing Initiative
, a multiverse-encompassing plan by Aperture on Earth Prime to leverage their multiverse technology to outsource their labor and expenses. It's generally very silly.
And because the decree is to have it be a post about other things: I have a new DragonDashery! For Earthling On Mars
, he requested an extraterrestrial hat so: I hatted him with Saturn. It seemed appropriate.
