Urban Exploration: Aperture is a map I have made for Portal 2.
I started creating the map in the puzzlemaker of Portal 2 and when all the puzzles were playtested and with good results, I imported the map into the Hammer editor and started with the cosmetic and more advanced features.

My main focus for this map is the puzzles aswell as to get the players to feel that the facility is waking up from a long sleep.

It took me around 3 weeks to get satisfied with the map and ready for it’s publish on the Steam Workshop.

What I’ve learned and have improved on:

  • Improved understanding of Source engine
  • Creation of interesting singleplayer puzzles
  • Making of a map that slowly feels more and more alive
