Portal Getting More than Just “A Bunch of New Puzzles”
I don’t know many people that didn’t enjoy Portal; the only complaint I really heard was that it caused certain people to get motion sickness, and others felt it was too short. (I disagree, but nevertheless.) Barring those that get sick, the rest of us will be excited to know that Valve is planning to add more to the game than just “a bunch of new puzzles,” as Valve’s Doug Lombardi put it.
“There’ll be more Portal, for sure. But the details of that, to be honest, we’re still working out,” he said.
“The only smart thing we did for Portal was to hire those seven kids and give them the support they needed to make the game.”
Another great piece of news was that Valve aims to ensure that all of its downloadable content will be free of charge. Lombardi also spoke vaguely about Episode Three, saying “Gordon is our number one guy.”
“In Episode One I think we left people with some big questions. After Episode Two people saw it was going somewhere.
“With Episode Three we want to live up to the promise of where we are taking things to; there’s a lot of work being done to make sure we deliver on that promise.”
He added, “Exact details on what’s next for Gordon are a way off; probably months not weeks.”
Honestly, I have no idea how they could possibly wrap up all of the storylines in Episode Three (what is G-Man!?!), but I’m cautiously optimistic that it will all work out.
