AcidSnake wrote:More chapter-exclusive spoilers, and some Portal 1 stuff. While the first game was coy in sharing the facility's history, the fictitiously official website of Aperture did reveal that the teleportation project wasn't even thought of until the 70s, and the portal device was finished long after his death. Portal 2 changes that in order to justify giving you test chambers to solve. Here's a fun fact: Portal 2 started out as a prequel with no portals. Testers wanted familiarity, but Valve found a way to make use of old Aperture and Cave as a character.
It's highly unlikely GLaDOS invented the portal device, by the way, especially with Portal 2 finally confirming that it existed at the start of Aperture. GLaDOS is interested in all sorts of science, it's just that the device is centric to the franchise. It would be a bit odd if we were testing a new line of cheese graters or something.
