This is the second map for portal I’ve made that is purely puzzle based. It’s a smaller map than Test Chamber 420 and easier.

Title: [map name] - test421
Release Date: 12-2-12
Author : a list of some of my handles - Vasego Ogesav, zonide, AGD-Boogeyman, You, i_like_trains and rageface

Recommendation: There are three cubes in the map and a series of buttons that need to be pushed in order to complete the map.

Description: This is the second map for portal I’ve made. After reading some of the comments from my Test Chamber 420 map on game banana.com, I tried to listen to what they had to say and apply some of their criticisms to the creation of Test Chamber 421. This map is smaller, more optimized than Test Chamber 420 and is purely puzzle based. There are also no sentries in this version. I’m debating making a hard mode version of the map in the future.

There are also timed portal sequences that fire based on invisible triggers.

Acknowledgement: Valve, Glados, the cake, and my friend the companion cube. Maybe black mesa...
