The Best Solution to a Problem is Usually the Easiest One

Easily, Portal is one of the few stand-out twenty-first century video game series that has caught the attention of my inner gamer-in-recovery, with its hybrid first-person-shooter-slash-puzzle-game sensibility. Put simply, it’s simply cool. So yeah, it’s a perfect candidate for LEGO-ization. Unfortunately for us, it doesn’t really pass CUUSOO’s guidelines. Really though, who cares, because these are mostly simple enough for any of us to build on our own, thanks to the brilliant designs by collaborators Brickthing and [Lego Junkie]. They’ve put together a gallery of their work on this theme that really showcases what good building is all about. I especially like the title-appropriate modular building approach seen here. Now all we need are just a few custom elements for one of the many third-party custom houses to take up, and we’re on like Donkey Kong.

    How does this not pass guidelines but the other Portal projects on CUUSOO do? When I first saw this today I got excited hoping that it would be on CUUSOO.

    Thanks for the feature and publicity!
    We actually managed to get the project onto Cuusoo a few days after you posted this.
    It can be found here!
