Learn more about the Artifacts’ Universe

Portal Games not only makes games to be enjoyed while playing, but also games that tell stories. Every two weeks (more or less) we release a new chapter of an Alien Artifacts lore series, that will introduce you to the universe of the Alien Artifacts. Witness the various facets of this world, its heroes and the events that take place during the monumental shift in humanity’s history. A shift that was initiated by the discovery of an alien race: its creations, technologies, architecture and philosophy.

Here are five already published chapters:
Chapter 1: Just this one and we’re going home
Chapter 2: Enjoy your flight
Chapter 3: Takeover of the enemy structures and securing infrastructure
Chapter 4: Peace and thought, brother
Chapter 5: Anais, darling!

Look up to the skies and see the Discovery!
