In the year 1947 Aperture Science Enrichment Center was created to make shower curtains for the US Military. The owner, Cave Johnson, fell ill thanks to his secret production of a Conversion Gel made from Lunar rocks prompting him to produce a three-tiered research program to ensure the longevity of his company. First, The Heimlich Counter-Maneuver. Second, The Take-A-Wish Foundation and third, The Portal Project which included the making of the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device. The latter was endlessly funded by the Senate and Johnson went on to... well, die.
Fast forward many years later when an AI research assistant known as "Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System" - aka GLaDOS - is activated on the Enrichment Center's first Bring Your Daughter To Work day. After releasing a neuro-toxin, locking everyone inside and taking over the facility, GLaDOS is equipped with a morality core to keep her dickish impulses in line. The morality core is a failure, shock. and thus, the Aperture Test Chambers were created for GLaDOS's enjoyment.
The remaining employees were forced to further develop and test the Portal Project using the nifty portal guns. It's unknown how long those poor souls lasted in the nearly abandoned Enrichment Center but eventually GLaDOS finds herself with only one test subject left, Chell, who GLaDOS wakes up from her stasis bed. GLaDOS tells Chell she's trapped in the Enrichment Center and must make her way through the test chambers...and so, the adventure that is Portal BEGINS!
Good job. Have fun.
