I saw it yesterday or the day before, and loved it, even though I haven't played Portal (save for a few stages at one of my friends' house) or its sequel. :lol: :D :lol: In fact, I need to tell my friend about it, he might get a giggle out of it.

Well, might as well add the obligatory Portal song: Still Alive.

Okay. In brief:

There's a game series called Portal that is set in what is basically a scientific research facility from hell called Aperture Science. Their attitude to science is summed up in the words of their founder, Cave Johnson: "We throw science at the wall and see what sticks." The whole point of the game is to use a gun that projects portals onto walls in order to solve puzzles and basically get out of deathtraps, many of which are so-called experiments. Imagine the game as you playing a human labrat going through a very deadly maze, and you might understand the song a bit better. Of course, you'd understand it a lot better if you knew more about the game, but hey.
