Answer :

  1. Narbacular Drop. A project for students at Digipen, it was a proof-of-concept of portal based gameplay
  2. Warning signs in VALVe’s Portal game

Portal was basically a “proper” game made from the gameplay mechanic invented by the Narbacular chaps.

    Valve’s new game “Portal”, as a part of the Orange Box release, which is a logic game based on new “portal physics” rather than simple gunplay.

    The first picture is Narbacular Drop, which is a free game developed by students from DigiPen institute. The original team that made it, are now all employed with valve.

    To quote the great wiki:
    Portal is Valve’s professionally-developed spiritual successor to the freeware game Narbacular Drop.

    Pertinently, my friend’s got the orange box on his computer.. and I’m going over to play it morrow. Yum! :)

    1. Narbacular Drop is an environmental puzzle video game developed by Nuclear Monkey Software. The gameplay consists of navigating a dungeon using an innovative portal system.

    2.Portal is a single-player first-person action/puzzle video game developed by Valve.The game consists primarily of a series of puzzles that must be solved by teleporting the player’s character and other simple objects using the “portal gun”, a unit that can create an inter-spatial portal between flat planes.

    Portal is Valve’s professionally-developed spiritual successor to the freeware game Narbacular Drop, the 2005 independent game released by students of the DigiPen Institute of Technology; the original Narbacular Drop team are now all employed at Valve

    Half Life 2 – the second visual roughly corresponds to the storyline of the game, going through canals and all. And the title clue is a G-man quote from the game.

    1. Princess No-Knees from Narbacular Drop
    2. safety warnings from Portal
    Clue: from half-life 2 -> Valve -> Portal

    portal/ teleportation oriented gameplay? same developers?

    hmm, a bit different.. but nice…
    (dont want to lose my run length…)

    anyway, Narbacular Drop (the first pic) by Digipen students: It is about a princess who is imprisoned and has to escape by creating portals on walls and phasing through them. dont bother playing it. very buggy.

    Portal is the new game by the same team, hired by Valve. It is part of their orange box. The image is a pictoral gameplay tutorial, presented in the game…
    Play portal, or you will burn in hell…


  7. Portal(game. pic 2) is Valve’s professionally-developed spiritual successor to the freeware game Narbacular Drop(pic 1), the 2005 independent game released by students of the DigiPen Institute of Technology

    one of gman’s quotes
