Do you miss blasting with your orange and blue space-warping cannons

... Nine months of work by a dedicated modder: NykO18 (and team) has crystallized into what amounts to an epic prequel to Portal, called Portal: Prelude
, whose story arc focuses on the "pre-GlaDOS
epoch". It's said to have more gameplay than even the original: 8 chapters, 48 challenges, 6 advanced maps and more than 400 lines of speech.You can try and whet your appetite with the official trailer, but I didn't find it captures the atmosphere very well -- maybe that has something to do with the Linkin Park?
Funny enough, it was midway through NykO18's work that the rumoured Valve announcement for their own Portal prequel (as Portal 2)
came, though it's also been rumored that it may end up being a sequel afterall.
