If you are one of the few people in the world that doesn’t own a copy of the original Portal game then Valve has just given you a brilliant opportunity to get one as the game is going to be free on Steam on PC and Mac until Tuesday. The original Portal game was released as part of The Orange Box in 2007 before hitting Steam and Xbox Live as a standalone product in 2008 with the game receiving praise from critics for its unique gameplay and the dark humour that was littered throughout the game, mainly thanks to the villain of the piece, GLaDOS.
Although a sequel has been released this year (the very successful Portal 2), I still urge you to check this game as you will have some great fun with it and you can see what all the fuss was (originally) about. I have this game on my Xbox 360 as part of The Orange Box but I will definitely be taking advantage of this offer as I’ve got a distinct lack of PC games that my laptop can actually play (and I can’t resist a good freebie).
So check it out! On 3 everyone, 1…2…3…THE CAKE IS A LIE!!!!!
