Portal 2

Conversion was a Portal 2 modification in development by Team Conversion. The game was a Portal 2 prequel and was going to feature a new non-linear storyline showing how Aperture Science turned into what we see in Portal 2. The mod was going to feature 6 chapters and would introduce new testing elements. Conversion was later cancelled.

Synopsis

In this mod, the player plays as CJ. The most important difference from Portal 2 is the non-linear plot, and meeting new characters, such as August, the Administration Core, and Ben, the Security Core. Characters such as Wheatley and GLaDOS also return. The test chambers also introduce new testing elements:

  • High Energy Pellet
  • Pneumatic Diversity Vent
  • Reflection Gel
  • Heavy Duty Thermal Reflection Panel
  • High Energy Ring
  • Heavy Duty Super-Colliding Super Button Reverse Gravity Field (HDSCSBRGF)
  • High Energy Thermal Discouragement Beam Battery

Cancellation

In 2015, the mod was announced to be cancelled for unknown reasons.

prePostscript

In July of 2017, one of the mod developers announced a successor to the original cancelled Conversion mod on Conversion's Moddb page. The developer stated that prePostscript was going to have the same premise as Conversion but was going to be significantly shorter (the six chapters and estimated six hours of gameplay was reduced down to three to four chapters). The new mod features a different player character, a few new characters. The mod is slated for a 2018 release on Steam, for free.
