LOL this is a re-envisioning of the Lemmings game. Trailer made me laugh!  

It's a bit of a shame for people who want anothe rgame by Valve but there is no surprise in this. Mobile is a huge market today and a portal IP can make tons of money (look at how a Fallout one is pop

Some guy on Kotaku posted a very long theory that ends with

"I think it'll be called the Blue Box and it will contain Ep3 as well"

....yeah right

no way. Valve has said numerous times that Ep3 won't be out this year. Portal 2 is probably gonna be a stand alone product, stand alone price, stand alone length. I'm cool with it.

So... we staring a pool on how many times this gets delayed? Who's in for 2 times? Anybody for a delay that pushes it into next year? :D

so why does the press release have underlined text everywhere?

edit; it spells out "drattmannh0nee" wtf? :P

Drattmann/h0nee turns out to be a new login/pass for the BBS in the Portal Arg, which reveals images encoded in a proprietary BASIC format, with info on the backup/backup login for how to compile a DOS BASIC program to actually render the images. They turn out to be this:

http://portalwiki.net/index.php/APF_Images

Which pretty much means a) Yeah, it's coop, and b) This is the end of the arg, or, c) It's something else entirely.

Drattmann, identified as Doug Rattmann (creator of the APF format used for those images) is an Aperture employee, and possibly the guy who left those hidden area messages you find in Portal, those are referred to as "Rat holes" in the commentary and the original concept of the game had an NPC named "The Rat Man" who was lost in the enrichment center and kinda batty and was responsible for those hidden areas. Valve cut him after thinking it'd be just as effective and less bothersome to just let the player read the walls without having a dude there acting crazy in front of them.

....yeah right

I always assumed it was called the orange box because that was their apparent level design process with orange boxes. Blue box sounds like severe vaginitis.

it would make sense to call it the blue box, since you'd need an entry and exit portal...
