level designer, Kim Swift, told Eurogamer that her game will last only about four hours
in its final version. The demo we saw at GDC
looks fun, but only four hours?Portal
will be bundled
with at least Half-Life 2: Episode 2
and Team Fortress 2
(in the $40 Black
version), which takes some of the sting. But ... four hours?
We're all for short, sweet games. But our idea of a short game is about eight hours unless we're playing monthly episodes
. When we hit the four-hour mark in a game, we're just getting started.
