Aperture: A Triumph of Science [Video]

By Jason Fitzpatrick on October 3rd, 2011

We’ve seen Portal-based fan films before but never one that takes this kind of in-depth and behind-the-scenes look inside the company at the core of game–Aperture Science.

In the above video we see how Aperture Science went from a shower curtain company to the preeminent scientific lab of its day complete with a megalomaniac central operating system. We know; it’s cruel to temp you with a lengthy psuedo-documentary about Portal and Aperture Science on a Monday morning when you’ve got real work to get done. You’re welcome.
