The '''Goo''',''Perpetual Testing Initiative''https//plus.google.com/102090447927900488343/posts/cYPbCtbkkuh Name according to Valve employee Steve Kalning also known as '''Contaminated Water''', '''Moat''', '''Toxic Water''' or simply '''Acid''', is a common environmental hazard in both ''Portal'' and ''Portal 2''. It is often found in Testing track|Test Chambers, where it usually functions as a testing element, as well as in various maintenance areas. It also fills the very bottom of Test Shaft 09.

== Overview ==
Goo is usually present within Test Chambers to add a hazardous element to the equation. Any contact with the Goo will result in continuous damage that would eventually kill a Test Subject within a few seconds. In ''Portal'', the death appears as in the ''Half-Life'' series (i.e. the view of the bottom of the Goo pit, with the ability to look around); in ''Portal 2'', the screen simply goes to green.

In ''Portal'', the Goo appears as a mixture of red, green, and brown-colored liquid with a swirled appearance, often with smoke swirling around its presence. In ''Portal 2'', the Goo appears to be mainly brown, though still with a swirled appearance.

Cubes of any kind or Sentry Turrets that have fallen into the Goo are irretrievable.

== Behind the scenes ==

The Goo can be seen as the ''Portal'' series equivalent of the radioactive / toxic waste from the ''Half-Life'' series, which serves a similar purpose.
