    Ending is hilarious.

    Yeah that had me too, but because it happened with TF2 a fair bit with the patches I just automatically restart steam just in case.

    I love the aesthetic and humour but I'm stuck like a moron on test 18. Details below.

    I'm in the large room with the four turrets. Took out all the turrets and activated the power thing to start the moving platform but I can't for the life of me see how to get up to the top room to grab the cube. Any help?

    My favourite line so far went something like.

    The consequences of falling into the liquid are a bad mark on your permanent test record ..... followed by death.
    :D

    gibbz, I know what to do with the cube, I just cant get the damn thing!

    Once you have it
    go down to the bottom room with the button. This button opens the door you came in. Go back out and there is a big button and the exit door.

    Can you tell me how to get the cube?

    Cheers

    When you push the button look at the angle the section of wall that moves is on

    I so want to tell you but you will hate me for it if I do.
    Each puzzle is a learning curve for the next one.

    For those who have finished I just want to say:
    I'm sure we will see portal guns in Half life soon. Seems like a convenient connection with the competition between Black Mesa and this research lot. Although from the ending I'm not sure if it is set in the past or present half life.

    If you
    haven't heard the song at the end
    then you haven't finished.

    Also if anyone
    finds that song in mp3 or some other format I can easily use as a ringtone
    big kudos to them.

    I thought it was a quick game even at the end, let alone at the furnace.
    If it wasn't for the bonus maps I would be left wondering how many cupcakes were taking up the devs time.

    Just finished the game. I'm a little disappointed about how short it was, but it was certainly a pleasure to play. The humour is great!

    Blerg... got stuck...

    I'm stuck in the room after that rocket launcher after you use it to blow up the second window and there is a small vent shaft.

    Anyone got any ideas? I'm either too drunk or just missing something very obvious.

    If I remember correctly you simply
    use the rocket launcher again, to blow open the tube, which gives you a box to stand on.

    thats what I thought.
    ended up just grabbing chairs from the other room, stacking them and jumping on top to get in.
