If you like this kind of puzzle solving, maybe try notpron
Nice job Valve
Nine inch nails did a similar deal with year zero a little while back. Even with a bit of SSTv 'static'.
The king of these ARGs is still Halo 2's I Love Bees...
Valve apparently has employees who enjoyed playing Beatles and Zeppelin records backwards and this is just an extension of that.
Insane! I got goosebumps from that, specially seeing that I was listening to somafm's dronezone at the same time...
i just love this kind of teasing
Absolute class. What a way to set the fanbase alight!
I tip my hat to the first person to get stuck into this as I would have just played the levels again and not even noticed anything.
Goosebumps? I think I just wet myself!
nice, a bit of fun news in the gaming industry. You would have though they`d all realised thats what it`s all about.
HL is definately getting reloaded in anticipation of a sneaky realease of episode 3? Or maybe just some nice new portal fun on its way?
I'm making a note here: "huge success!"
Valve have very unorthodox methods of stirring interest in their games, pretty awesome, now Valve, we've messed the Portal fan base up, updated Steams UI, made Left 4 Dead 2 what about Episode 3 now, please?
I guess they'd have played along just the same
I love an ARG me. I lost a large chunk of my life to the insanity that was Perplex City
Who would have thought such clever people would play Portal, i'm impressed that they worked all that out.
well portal is a pc game.
cool something new for portal is a welcome plus. ^_^
God I remember adminning on one of those, am I old?
Anyway all this mystery and puzzle solving is a brilliant move on Valve's part and I can't wait to find out what it all leads to.
i feel so unclever it's untrue... but i do have friends and i can talk to girls no problem so I guess it's swings and roundabouts.
Valve said no episode 3 this year..
...but said nothing about Portal 2.
I don't really mind Valve taking a bit of time to come out with HL2:EP3. I mean c'mon it's Valve id you expect different (L4D2 i know). They could turn Activision/EA and try to crank one out each and they suck. I haven't played a bad Valve game, some I don't enjoy (TF2), but not necessarily a bad game. They are always polished and mostly working right from the bat.
Edit: There are some scarily clever people out there.
I just ran the dinosaur*.wav files through MMSSTV and was gobsmacked as the images took shape.
What next... 5 golden tickets?
