First look: ASCIIpOrtal

March 4, 2009

Yes yes, we know about the flash/2D version of Portal.

But here’s something even more creative. An ASCII* version of Portal.
(ASCII = the very basic character graphics on a PC)

Type-in game enthusiast Cymon is the man responsible, and you can track progress of ASCIIpOrtal via (link removed – no longer available) at Retro Remakes.

It’s “early days” yet, but he has uploaded a small proof-of-concept.

Now, have a look another peek at that screenshot.
Will you ever look the same way at inverse heart characters again? 🙂
