Pillow Case's Museum Could Be The Next Portal

Pillow Castle's gameplay demonstration of their upcoming first-person puzzler, currently entitled Museum: simulation technology, has been making waves ever since its release several days ago. At the time of this writing, the Youtube video (posted above) has received over 10,000 upvotes and only 45 downvotes. Not too shabby.
As the prototype explains, it expands on the concept of "forced perspective," where an object far away looks much smaller than it actually is. It's an optical illusion based on our perspective of 3D objects on a 2D plane. Set to classical music, the object of each puzzle level is to locate the exit doors and then find a way to reach it.
The video starts easy enough, introducing the basics of scaling objects, but by the end of the video, it plays with perspective and portals to such a degree that it might even make Valve jealous. Now, only if we can infuse this concept into the next Alice In Wonderland game...
