November 14th: EXTRA! ASCIIpOrtal 1.2 is out! Re-download for a decidedly enhanced experience.
See high res text graphics. Master physics bending puzzles. Escape the test chambers. Play ASCIIpOrtal!
ASCIIpOrtal is a unique puzzle game. You can create custom maps so even when the game is over the fun doesn’t need to end. Use a text editor (or the mostly functional map editor by Mads Lund) and share the maps you create on the ASCIIpOrtal forum.
ASCIIpOrtal is by Joe Larson with sounds designed by Steve Fenton. Original concept inspired by Increpare’s Portile game, Super Serif Bros, and Valve’s Portal. Source code is included in the zip. Simply unzip and play.
The ASCIIpOrtal development thread is where I determined to document the development process and publish interim builds in and still exists, documenting some of the cool things that have happened since. When it got to the point that I didn’t want folks playing it out and getting bored with it (about the time I added the actual portal mechanic) I stopped publishing interim builds and made a video showing it off. That video went crazy popular and can be found here:
I followed it up with another video :
Which brings us up to present day.
In windows simply download, unzip, and play.
