Portal: The Flash Version

I really want to play portal. I have yet to meet a person who played this game, and did not love it. I may need to reinstall Steam and see if they have it available as a standalone download. Last time I looked it was only available in the Orange box bundle. I mean, OB is a great deal if you don’t own any HL titles already. If you do however, it seems kinda wasteful, even if you also get Team Fortress with it. Valve should really just offer it as stand-alone title for like $20 bucks or something (since the game is really short). If they do offer that, let me know – I don’t have Steam on my machine right now.

In the meantime, I found this:

Portal Flash

Now this simple 2d flash game does not even capture half of Portal awesomeness. Still, it’s incredibly fun. I literally spent several hours playing it and I loved every second. Now add 3rd dimension, and the unique humor and atmosphere and image how much fun the original game could be.

Caution – the flash game will really, really make you want to play Portal. Playing it might be hazardous to your wallet or your bandwidth (if you choose to obtain the game in a less than legal way). :P

    Valve does offer Portal for $19.95 through Steam. You have no excuse to miss out now.

    They do offer Portal alone, and I think it’s about $20. The Orange Box also gets you Half-Life 2 Episode 2 though, plus you can give (or perhaps sell) any existing copies of the other included games as Steam gift things to friends who don’t have them yet ;)

    Both (of the above) games are awesome, I highly recommend them both :D

    I played the flash version shortly before getting hold of the real thing, they both rock :D

    Seems pretty much everything portal-related rocks. They need to get cracking on Portal 2 now

    Wohoo! Steam is now welcome to come back on my computer. :)

    And yeah, I don’t know what is it about portals, but everything they touch becomes awesome. :)

    There’s a pretty clear hint near the end of HL2 Episode 2 that the Half-Life and Portal storylines are going to converge in Episode 3.

    Imagine having the portal gun and the gravity gun…

    Portal is awesome, I had so much fun playing this game. Buying the Orange Box isn’t that bad, Episode 2 is pretty good too!

    @Ross: That’s what I thought too ;) A continuation of Portal, either separate from, or combined with the events of HL1 (and maybe HL2) would be great too though :D

    @Jme – yeah, I saw it. I haven’t tried playing HL2 that way yet. I’m guessing it totally unbalances the game but it looks like fun ;)
