Pretty cool stuff. If anyone here has played the new game Prey, or the awesome Demo, this game "Portal" has basically the same very cool portal type effects.

Leading the way to interesting, and NEW gaming.

I read somewhere that this is based off of and will be developed by the same people that made the not so well known 3d pc game called Narbacular Drop.

I thought Valve was making it...
That's what Wikipedia seems to think too

Edit: Well, what do ya know?
Quote:
Portal is Valve's professionally-developed semi-sequel to the freeware Narbacular Drop, the 2005 independent game released by students of the DigiPen Institute of Technology; the original Drop team are now all employed at Valve[2]. Certain elements, like the orange/blue system of identifying the two different portals a player can have open at a time (one connecting to the other), seem to have been retained.

Prey was a good game too, was very different and unique, but Portal, apparently released on the side in the Half Life 2 Episode Two package looks like its gonna be really neat.

Portal looks sick. I'm going to be picking up Episode Two just to to get it. And maybe if Episode Two peaks my interest I'll go grab Episode One.

The modders that did the driveable strider mod have duplicated Portal effects withing current HL2, but haven't released anything yet...
Spore does look pretty good, too.
Anyone seen the Battlestar Galactica:Beyond the Red Line mod for Freespace2? Absolutely wicked... their main site's down, hosting issues, but the mod's alive and well... I'll start a thread with some pics...
