Post Specially Level With Me, Adam Foster ' Part Two


In this very special installment of 'Level With Me', Robert Yang speaks with former celebrity modder / current Valve level designer Adam Foster about his work and process. In Part 2, we cover his work on Portal 2, game architecture, and how to design for players.

Robert Yang: Let's talk Portal 2. It didn't have any health-kits or power-ups, so how did you go about guiding players without those breadcrumbs?

Adam Foster: The game often worked best when it kept to the basic structure of the 'test-chamber' ' walking through a door, GLaDOS says a funny line, you complete the test, GLaDOS says another funny lineā?¦ It's that constant, near-ritualised loop which can be subverted now and then, but you have to show the normal routine before the abnormal becomes surprising.
(moreā?¦)
