Glad Tidings: Portal Free Until Sep 20th

Free cake for everyone

Goodness, that happened with absolutely no fanfare. The original Portal, if you somehow don’t already own it, can now be installed and played for free via Steam. I’ve just checked it on a spare Steam account and it works just dandy. This is true of both the PC and the Mac version, by the way. If you’re determined to pay money for it, you can still cough up for The Orange Box or the Portal 1+2 package, but just Portal itself now defiantly costs no-pennies. Grab it from here.

Update: transpires that this is only available until September 20th, as part of a games and learning initiative from Valve. So get your skates on, yes? As long as you install the game before the expiry date, it’s yours to keep forever.

You can see more on Valve’s “Learn With Portals” program, wherein they’re encouraging kids to create Portal levels themselves, in the rather charming video below.

Impressions: Broforce

Broforce is a run-and-gun platformer which joyously spoofs the bellicose masculinity of action cinema. It’s available on Steam Early Access for £12/$15, but its featureset punches above its alpha status: singleplayer, onlin...

It’s Weird We Haven’t Posted About Hex Before

Puzzling Probing: 0rbitalis Launched On Steam Early Access

As a sceptic, I’m hesitant to believe in anything I can’t see. That’s why I schlep myself around in lead diving boots rather than trust in your supposed ‘gravity.’ I’m not closed-minded though, so I am willing to e...
