It’s hard to believe that Portal 2 came out 7 years ago, and the first Portal another 4 years before that. Many fans are clinging onto what little hope they have that Valve will bring out a sequel to the franchise, Portal 3. The only thing we’ve seen that comes close is the Bridge Constructure Portal game.
Even with the games coming close to a decade old, we’re still learning and finding new things. Here are 5 Easter Eggs and Secrets for both Portal games you might have missed, courtesy of Reddit.
Test Chamber 19
When you first retrieve your Portal gun, the first location you come across is Test Chamber 19. If you’ve played Portal 1, then this location should be very familiar. That’s because this is the final test chamber that you visit in the first Portal game!
The cake is NOT a lie
After Chells escape in Portal 1, you can find an actual recipe for a cake on several computer monitors. The image above shows ingredients such as 1 large egg and chocolate chips. During the Battle of GLaDOS, the Intelligence Core will repeat the ingredients. The Portal cake was also inspired by the ‘Black Forest Cake’ sold in a Bakery near Valves HQ.
Witcher 3 Crossover
In Witcher 3, all the portals in Moreau’s lair are either blue or orange. When heading through a blue portal, the returning portal will be orange. A nice little nod to the Portal series. In the same area, is a crate with light pink hearts on each side to represent the companion cube.
The Charred Companion Cube
Remember that charred and burnt cube that was returned to you at the end of Portal 2? It’s the same cube that you incinerated yourself in Portal 1 for the Fratricide achievement. A nice throwback.
