    Portal is FREE!

    End of story.

    Well, technically speaking, there are some strings attached. Fortunately, they're entirely decorative. We just like the way they look, swaying in the gentle breeze created by a million people simultanously fainting from shock at the news that Portal is free. Now you have no reason not to try Portal.

    "I have a reason," some of you are probably typing into an angry email. "You see, sir, I own a Mac."
    Well guess what: For the first time ever, Portal is also available for the Mac.

    "Capitol news! But the excellent puzzle adventure Portal won over 40 Game of the Year awards; Surely it must cost at least five or six hundred dollars."

    You'd think that, especially since it actually won over 70 Game of the Year Awards. But, like we keep saying, Portal is free. Free on the Mac. Free on the PC. But only until May 24th. So you only have a few days to decide if your free copy of Portal is worth the price we're currently charging - which is you ever-so-slightly moving your index finger just barely enough to click the big red "download" button right there at the bottom


    Yes I know it's not Blizzard but I thought it would look better in a Blizzquote ^^

    Put a wheelchair on a golf course and try to get through it only using the wheelchair (you have to hit every sand and water thingy on the way)

    This is something I would want to spam to any friend I have. I loved Portal, and consider it one of the best games to ever be made. It was short but sweet, and anyone who hasn't played it, should.

    Hey! thanks. Although it runs at around 10-20 frames on my computer, i'm still going to enjoy it.

    This is like making Half-life free. I mean, who doesn't already have it??

    Zing!

    This must be the beginning of the implementation of Steam Games onto unix operating systems. Got to say Valve are my favourite Games development company, from the incredible games right down to their amusing posts.

    always wanted to try the game but didn't want to shell out the $20 that steam wanted for it, I have to say although it was short it is an amazing puzzle game. I'm excited for portal 2!
