Finished Portal 2 yet? If so then you will surely have heard the track ‘Exile Vilify’ by indie band, ‘The National’. Although for me personally the song doesn’t hit the giddy heights of the track featured in the original Portal, ‘Still Alive’ (I couldn’t get that out of my head for WEEKS after finishing the game!) it has inspired an interesting competition to be run by Valve.
Anyone who fancies getting their creative juices flowing should be excited by this prospect; creating their own music video for ‘Exile Vilify’. The competition starts today and runs until midnight on July 15th, the winner will receive a personalized and autographed ‘The National’ guitar and loads of Portal 2 freebies.
In order to enter all you need to do is to submit your video to YouTube, using the tag PORTAL2NATIONALEXILE. The community itself will judge the winner but surely anything including Stephen Merchant should be worth extra credit? For more information check out thinkwithportals.com and good luck! If you should direct the next ‘Thriller’, remember where you heard about this first!
