    I wasn’t aware they made a Portal: Super Mario Galaxy Edition.

  8. Lekonua on February 14th, 2008 5:28 pm

  13. Raiden_Zer0 on February 14th, 2008 8:43 pm

    ‘Up’ is a lie!

  14. FrEEz on February 14th, 2008 10:00 pm

    O.O… now if you only added a bunch of gravity-defying turrets/Chels… Other than that, this is epic.

  15. the man behind the curtain on February 14th, 2008 10:37 pm

    *Mind explodes*
    I really wish there was a level like that but it would be impossible.

  16. GermaineTrain on February 15th, 2008 12:20 am

    *brain implodes and oozes out ear* (do you know how long it takes to type on this Wii!)

  17. Sye216 on February 15th, 2008 12:26 am

    ACK *Head shakes violently*
    Great picture, even if it did make my brain asplode.

  18. Kevin J. on February 15th, 2008 12:44 am

    You know, with a little effort I think the portal game engine could let you monkey around inside M.C. Escher paintings or similar architecture. Just add subjective gravity like in the Milkman Conspiracy of Psychonauts and have a truly evil level designer.

    M.C. Escher, Portal, and Psychonauts in one game? Truly, that would be the best game ever.

  21. Ryumaru on February 15th, 2008 10:02 am

    Hummina Hummina Hummina Hummina….. My brain a splode!
    That would be evil. Hmmmm…

  22. The Silent One on February 15th, 2008 12:57 pm

    That reminds me of that old movie called Labirynth.

  23. Lekonua on February 15th, 2008 1:50 pm

    @ The Silent One
    The scene you’re thinking of (As well as the above picture) was inspired by an M.C. Escher painting. http://homepage.ntlworld.com/andrew.lipson/escher/relativity.jpg

  24. killercartoons on February 15th, 2008 2:23 pm

    “you get cake after finishing this level, we’re serious this time….”

  25. lolhax on February 15th, 2008 4:19 pm

    teh caek is a lai.

  26. SPAZTICK WOLF on February 15th, 2008 4:36 pm


  27. GermaineTrain on February 15th, 2008 6:59 pm

    LFG? The very angry sword owns.
    anyway, the voice promised there would be cake… stupid companion cube

  28. david2222121 on February 15th, 2008 7:03 pm

    Non-linearity. DO NOT WANT.

  29. Bazu on February 15th, 2008 9:58 pm


    teehee. Labryinth anyone?

  30. rikumelenium on February 15th, 2008 11:45 pm

    *sees an energy orb port* wait, where does the energy orb come from? o.o zomg unsolvable level

  31. Ripshot on February 16th, 2008 4:01 pm

    “This next test is impossible, do not attempt to solve it, for you can not”

    and yes, M.C. Escher, Portal, and Psychonauts in one game would win the internetz and the worldz.

  32. Alphalance on February 18th, 2008 10:31 pm

    Ha i am imune to ur head explodyness, for my head already blew-up with portal challenges. But now…*dramatic camera close up* I’m thinking with portals

  33. GLaDOS on February 20th, 2008 3:47 am

    Hmm… I don’t remember test level destruc- I mean, -1, being open to observers.

  34. Mad Stumpy on February 23rd, 2008 12:04 pm

    The cake is a pie….

  35. FrEEz on February 26th, 2008 2:45 pm

    *looks closer* Hmm….

    This is actually a map, which is tilted sideways, you see that turret up there? It’s impossible for it to stand sideways…

    I’m guessing the original map looked like this: http://xs.to/xs.php?h=xs124&d=08092&f=escher278.jpg

    But still…that looks alot like the painting, awesome job

  36. Valdis M. on March 10th, 2008 12:17 am

    How are you supposed to knock the turrets over?!?

  37. cipher on March 10th, 2008 5:11 pm

    Its like if Portal tuned all Non-Euclidean….and if Cthulhu was there…with some pie. Made of souls…SOUL-PIE!…and if Gordon Freeman talked for once…Then it would be a reversed world!

  38. cipher on March 10th, 2008 5:14 pm

    Oh and to FrEEz,Of course the turret wouldn’t stand like that in reality but this is an M.C. Escher-esque painting. Of course the turret would be like that….It only makes sense

  39. POW3RUP on March 15th, 2008 4:30 pm

    Awesome. What ‘portal’ you talking about?

  40. roulette25 on September 19th, 2008 10:15 am

    **(enters level and looks around)** oh dear god *brains implodes*

  41. Josh on November 12th, 2008 7:45 pm

    It’s not THAT hard.

    You just shoot up/down, then left/up/forward, then jump 3 times, then spin around 276 degrees, then grab the handgun, then shoot yourself.

  42. Cherubim on June 15th, 2009 7:00 am

    I look at this picture, as well as the original Relativity, and see nothing wrong. That's just how that particular object ought to be.

    On another note, This is my dream level. A subjective gravity portal game would complete my existence! Beautiful work, whoever made this.

  43. 64_hit_combo on September 29th, 2010 10:35 pm

    i wuld love to play this lvl…
