A test subject wakes up in a scientific facility controlled by a sadistic artificial intelligence and must escape with the help of the only instrument she has--a gun that makes portals.
You wake to find yourself in a small, square, glass room containing a futuristic-looking tube-like bed, a toilet, and a table with a radio playing a tune on it alongside a mug and a clipboard with data on it. A timer is counting down from a minute just above the closed door leading out of the small room. A voice sounds from a speaker in the ceiling of the room. After some things are said, the voice becomes distorted for a second, sparks come out of the speaker, and the voice returns to normal. It counts down from five, synchronized with the timer above the door. At zero, the door opens, and you are released from your cell....

You use these portals to solve numerous and sometimes deadly test chambers of the Aperture Science Enrichment Center, always watched by the super computer GLaDOS (Generic Lifeform and Disk Operating System).
