View Full Version : Portal Gameshow [Request]

05-18-2011, 09:39 AM
Hi folks,

I make little sketches for YouTube under the username PulpitPower (http://www.youtube.com/user/PulpitPower?feature=mhee)

I've got a sketch planned about a Portal 2 Gameshow, hosted by Glad0s (or possibly a Presentersphere) where a contestant attempts to grab a cube full of money and fails. When the lights come on we discover that it was just another test.

However, experience has taught me that I'm bloody useless with 3D modelling, and I figure what would take me days to scrape together in Hammer one of you might be able to do in minutes.

I'm looking for a simple map laid out like a saturday night game show, with a high podium for the contestant (chroma'd in) to jump from into a portal on the floor, then a 'cash' box suspended in the air.

Anyone fancy taking a stab at it? (more info / sketches available on request)

i can help with the map.
Just make a drawing or little concept thing that i can build after.

Here we go. Looking for a similar feel to 'The Cube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7u2t-IIkuBM)' i.e. dark with a few strong light strips. On the sketch the dark area above the blue line is an audience area.

The map should be dark with bright lights for the show, but then have house lights to reveal the test chamber at the end. However, I can do lighting in C4D, so if you just want to do the building that's fine by me.

Let me watch an episode of that show online real quick. I first thought of the horrormovie "Cube" and was excited, but the show looks nice, too!

Clean and new aperture style or grown over broken?

Edit: Just add me on steam (audiotrash) and spam me with your thoughts. Way easier :D

Good thinking,

Got some friends over tonight but I'll try to grab you later on / or tomorrow and we can spam.

You know, the concept of a game show inside the Portal universe is fantastic! The possibilities for humor are endless if you went all out with custom narration and music.

I'm always open for suggestions if you have any. The more gags the merrier.

A studio audience full of cheering turrets.
