haven't had any confirmation of a Portal
sequel, other than, you know, designer Kim Swift
and Valve's lead marketing director, Doug Lombardi
mentioning that the game is probably
coming. Now internet songster and Portal
theme -- "Still Alive" -- composer Jonathan Coulton
has chimed in as well.
We recently interviewed Coulton about his upcoming "Best. Concert. Ever."
CD & DVD set (look for the full interview soon where we'll be giving a copy away), and the first thing we asked him about was how his song for Portal 2
was coming along. "I haven't started it yet. I honestly don't know ... I haven't spoken to them in a long time about it, so I don't know much at all about their plans for Portal 2
and what they're thinking of doing," he told us. "And that's the truth, that's not an 'I signed a non-disclosure agreement and can't tell you what's going on' answer. I really don't know."
So it's still a non-confirmation of nothing, but it sounds like he may be on tap to write something for it. Maybe. Possibly. Speculatively. Hope is "Still Alive" (we hope).
