In The Portal you'll start seemingly trapped in a room with a couch, a TV with white noise, and a panel on a wall. There is also a couch, where with closer inspection you may be able to find an object in it. You'll be using your mouse to click on items, and pick up items to put in your inventory. Many times you will not see items that are there to take, so just click on the screen until the cursor changes to a hand. You'll use objects to help yourself along the way. In order to use an object on something or someone, just click and drag. Your inventory is on the bottom of your screen. There are plenty of puzzles to solve and places to gin The Portal; are you ready?
