Anyone else notice the underlined letters/number?  Is that a result of the search or...?

It's some "game" to get people interested in, well, the game - kinda like the stuff NIN set up when launching Year Zero. http://drattmannh0nee.com is registered & set up, and there's a "bunch of weird stuff" about it. Google :)

I wish valve would get their act together and get the next HL2 episode out...

When you click the graphic on http://www.drattmannh0nee.com The page title is:

index.htm hakudk
index2.htm: dakhuk

Weird: The "div"s that are lined up in the source code equal the Fibonacci number 112358 (start/end div for each count), and the 2nd page reverses it making it 853211 which is a prime number

What made portal so great was that it was just as long as it needed to be, any shorter and it would have felt short. Any longer and it would have been too long and repetitive. I just don't see the gameplay needing a sequel.

The cake better be real this time! I only played it for the cake!

Oh, and I want the portal gun ported/modded into all the Source Engine games.

And some cake, dagnabbit!

Yeah, that's already done.

That's more like having the other Source Engine games ported into Portal. And enemies don't go through the portals. )c:

That will still be fun to try out. Thanks for the link!

dr00lz!

Looks like something that might very well be worth playing, and not just new levels built on portal 1 concept.

...and from the gameplay montage, wow. Looks like it has potential for some really mindboggling puzzles :o :o :o
