Eyebrows have been raised at the rather shameless filching of the dimensional portal gameplay Valve’s Portal is known for by a Korean multiplayer FPS, with the equally original title “GATE.”

The game, by JC Entertainment, is currently in closed beta testing in Korea. Whether there are any plans for an international release is not clear.

It seems also to bear more than a passing resemblance to TF2…

Portal gameplay for those unfamiliar with it:

Whilst someone stealing the portal gameplay was perhaps inevitably going to happen, duplicating the exact same portal effect and gameplay dynamic seems to be taking things a little too far.
