Valve Portal for Free
Offered until May 24, 2010 only guys!


Valve's original Portal game is now being offered for free on Steam. Not only that, it's offered for both the PC and Mac versions. Yep, you read it right... including the Mac version. Here's a low-down on Portal if you haven't heard of it yet, courtesy of wikipedia:

The game consists primarily of a series of puzzles that must be solved by teleporting the player's character and simple objects using the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device ("ASHPD", also dubbed the "portal gun"), a unit that can create inter-spatial portals between flat planes. The player character is challenged by an AI named "GLaDOS" to complete each puzzle in the "Aperture Science Computer-Aided Enrichment Center" using the portal gun with the promise of receiving cake when all the puzzles are completed. The unusual physics allowed by the portal gun are the emphasis of this game and are an extension of a similar portal concept in Narbacular Drop; many of the team members from the DigiPen Institute of Technology that worked on Narbacular Drop were hired by Valve for the creation of Portal.

Here's the official announcement from Valve for the free release of the game through Steam. The game is actually interesting and would put your analytical skills to the test. I was amazed the first time I saw this game, it proves that first-person shooters isn't only limited to blood and gore. Lol. Anyway, I'll leave you guys to enjoy Portal's game trailer here. :)
