Forgotten Chambers is Portal 2 single player map with the puzzles focused on speed and velocity. The theme of the level is inspired from portal 2 underground facilities. Forgotten Chambers was the top rated level on steam workshops for up to two weeks and had over 2700 players, now it is on fourth page of top rated levels of all time.
I started out in portal 2 own ingame level editor blocking out the space and the basics of the puzzles. I chose to do so because the editor is quite limited and that would let me focus on the basic design. When the basic design was set I imported the level to the Source/Hammer editor to continue my work there, changing the aesthetics, evolving the puzzles and applied changes based on feedback.

Answering on Feedback
After two weeks of working on Forgotten Chambers I uploaded The level on steam workshop for community feedback. I got a great response and started continuously upload new versions based on the feedback that I got. Here is some examples.
