Portal 2 mod Thinking With Time Machine confirmed for Linux

Here’s another piece of news that shows the importance of the community for a developer. Due to a considerable amount of interest, the developers behind the Thinking With Time Machine mod for Portal 2 have finally decided to bring the mod over to Linux.

The announcement came over the Steam Community Boards, where the developer confirmed that a Linux version of the unique and famous mod for Valve’s game Portal 2 will be heading for Linux. Portal 2 was ported over to Linux a few months ago. This is a great news, as basically the community itself has caused the mod to be brought over to Linux. The comment that officially confirmed the decision read, “Stridemann:

OSx support added.

Linux support comming soon”

Thinking with Time Machine is a Portal 2 mod in which you will find and use a Time Machine to create a twin of yourself from the past to help you solve the puzzles. The past self accurately repeats all of the player’s actions, creating a unique twist on familiar Portal game mechanics.

The mod even has its own storyline that goes something like this, “Deep within the facilities at Aperture Science lies a secret research laboratory that was locked and closed off… until it was found by robots.”

Features

  • New and unique gameplay
  • Custom content (models, textures)
  • New design
  • Convenient and simple control in the form of a new datapad item
  • Different ways to think about and solve puzzles
  • Switch positions with your twin at any time and choose which twin to control
