Stupid Star Wars FU, totally kept me so busy I somehow missed the first announcements of this game. This very very EPIC, and AWESOME game. While still not actually out yet, it is said to be expect the release very soon(end of month, early Oct at latest).
And unlike Portal the Flash Game, this is no simple map pack, this is a TRUE mod. “It offers a bit more gameplay hours than the original Portal, with 8 chapters, 19 test chambers, 48 challenges, 6 advanced maps, a brand new storyline and more than 400 lines of speech with english and french subtitles.”
The mod will be completely free, and to run it you’ll need the original Portal of course. You might also need Some of the other games like Half Life 2 and/or CounterStrike Source. I’m sure more specifics on that will be figured out once the mod is released to the public.
I have to say, I’m very excited over this, especially the aspect of the game taking place right before GlaDOS is activated, and there are still people working there.
*UPDATE* There’s a really nice interview that can be found at halflife2.net. Also looks like beginning of October is more likely then end of September for the release, with Oct. 10th being a key date(anniversary of The Orange Box).
