nice work =)

Great game! Needs some work, a bit repetitive hearing the same lines everytime I die and the blocks were sometimes a bit awkward to place down but really enjoyed the game and storyline! 

Watch me play the game here: 

This has potential, but it feels so janky with the Portals and placing Cubes on top of red buttons.

It gets especially troublesome with Chamber 5, because every time I place a Portal and enter it, I immediately die.

It sucks 'cause I love Portal 1 & 2, and I'd like to see a horror game based on Portal, especially considering the darker aspects of the Portal series.

But for right now, I will have to rely on others' videos in order for me to experience it fully.

This game was challenging and funny. Though it needs work. The blocks would break and at one point I made a portal into a black hole which ended up killing me. I think it’s repetitive when I die and hear the same voice lines over and over again. I’ve never played portal that being said it’s a well made fan game considering I knew what game the dev was inspired from.

The Cake's a Lie. :) :D XD

The Iris Enrichment Center would like to remind you that the Cake is  manufactured from 70% gluten and 30% unidentifiable gelatinous mold and is indeed physical.

Thanks for playing!

I wish I had been able to finish this, but it's such a great concept. Please let me know if you fix the bugs, I'd love to give it another try!

it has potential but it is janky af

Agreed. I kept raging over the second button in Lab 5 not being pressed properly.

tell me about it the button got a weird glitch with it being popped out

(+1)

Thanks for the feedback! We're working on some fixes now :)

looks good also you fixed the cubes flying around like madness gj

That button....I was ready to break something, lol.

I was mocked by an AI for 45 minutes and fell out of the map. 10/10

Your video got me through the 5th test. Thank you!

You're welcome :) I still don't know how it worked though.

Fantastic game, you guys keep it up! You might be interested to join in the channel, this is a new project idea I intend to do it daily reviewing hundreds of games to get the best of the best. Congrats on making on the list!

Really fun game, made me laugh a lot. The puzzles were great, it felt like I was being mocked through every part of the game. I did do the dumb thing and watch the spike trap close in the platform jumping level, turns out even from safety I still died. It was so funny, and I loved the twist on all the cakes. The ending was great recreation.

I am not sure if the Switch on Puzzle 5 is bugged (Can be seen at the 10min mark), it felt random if the cubes worked or not. One crazy moment was when the door opened after both cubes fell in the water. If it is bugged, for the life of me I cannot work out what is going on with it. I did also get out the map through a portal, but that was just hilarious.

Still really good game, and I loved the voice actor, his lines were hilarious.

Hi there, I am DragonExplosion and I am a Youtuber. If you like my videos, please leave a like and subscribe at my channel. 

This was a really cool horror game that makes use of the game mechanics in Portal to create this horror game. This game is definitely not an easy game as I struggled for a really, really long period of time on LEVEL 5. I don't understand why the door doesn't remain open even though I placed the boxes on each button. It was really frustrating for me and I suffered at Level 5, not knowing if it was a bug or there was actually a way to open the door with the boxes. I enjoyed the puzzles in the game and the storyline of the game as well as it really resembles the game Portal. There's also another part of my video where at level 7, I somehow portal my way out of the map and couldn't do anything but to leave the game.  Will be looking forward to more games made by you guys in the future.

Thank you for reading my comment and I wish you good luck in your future endeavours.

Thanks for your feedback - we're working on it :) 

As for the portal bugs... yeah. Unfortunately the mechanic is a really hard one to restrict (definitely going to NOT use any portal mechanics in the future for this reason) but learned a bunch of lessons with coding and physics...   Thanks for the feed back and very much appreciated! Subscribed!

Good luck in your future games and thanks for the support!

Thanks queenfaith! More to come, stay tuned~

Saw a playthrough of this on YouTube and I just gotta say, this game is great!! I'm a huge Portal fan so seeing a horror "parody" of it made my day! Developers definitely have a TON of potential! Great work!! :D

Appreciate it! We're on to our next game, so stay tuned! :)
