 Chell never looked so good.
As much as we all love Portal 2, I know that every single one of you has, at one time or another, wished in your heart of hearts that the game were a little bit more like a Logan's Run-meets- Super Fly 1970s sci-fi action exploitation extravaganza. It's a story that's just begging for that kind of treatment.

While the folks at Valve are unlikely to grant you your greatest of wishes in playable form, one of the studio's artists, Tristan Reidford, whipped up a completely amazing '70s-style movie poster featuring the game's various characters. While your immediate reaction might just be to make it your desktop background, you can actually do yourself one better and put it on your real life, non-computerized wall, as the poster will be going on sale in the Steam store in a couple of weeks.

As our own Ryan Davis histrionically pointed out over Twitter this morning, yes, there are a few spoilers floating around inside that poster. We're going to drop the main poster below If you haven't played yet, so maybe don't stare at it too hard? As for me, I know I'll be grabbing one as soon as they go on sale.

Dunno if I would have casted Kristen Kreuk as Chell. Not the most impressive resume, that girl.

#10 Posted by Hiashi (87 posts) -

Fantastic style. Does justice to the source material!
#11 Posted by ch13696 (4582 posts) -

I didn't know there was a novel by Cave Johnson. I hope there's a mention of "lemons" in the book.

I still need to finish this game, bought it on 360 like 4-5 days ago and only played about 2 hours.

Probably gonna knock out a few hours today and i would totally buy that poster.

Fuckity fuck fuck fuck! I love the poster, but the Valve store ass rapes you on shipping costs!

Yeah, it's pretty good. I've seen it about five times now, owing to the fact I've checked my RSS feed a number of times this morning.

Its the kind of spoiler you'd have to play the game to notice. In other words, its not a fucking spoiler. 
#24 Posted by Freezer_Burn (207 posts) -
@Milkman: I think it's the bird carrying a certain potato.
#25 Posted by TheHT (10808 posts) -

Those are the sort of spoilers you'll only notice if you've played the game. If you haven't you'll have no idea.

#26 Posted by AllanIceman (1322 posts) -

Need a high res to make a giant poster!

#30 Posted by Napalm (9020 posts) -

Oh man, I was totally about to start some movie poster designs based on classic heavy metal albums. I hope this doesn't throw a wrench in my spoke.

#31 Posted by Beechbone (109 posts) -

This is awesome

#32 Posted by Seroth (709 posts) -

I totally want this, but is shipping still super expensive on the Valve store?

#33 Posted by 234r2we232 (3181 posts) -

Yes, it's true. Companion cube survived the first game.

#34 Posted by Seedofpower (3925 posts) -

New Wallpaper.

I think they're talking about the bird in the corner or the grass?

Anyways, great poster. Now if only I'd liked Portal 2...

Man this poster is sweet.
#41 Posted by uniform (1832 posts) -

It's beautiful. I tend to only hang movie posters inside my home, but I would be more than happy to have that in my house, even after the Portal hype dies. I really do want it.

#42 Posted by YoThatLimp (1877 posts) -

Definitely buying this

#43 Posted by Tesla (1904 posts) -

Too amazing not to buy.

Valve fans continue to assert their dominance over all fan-bases.

Chet isn't credited as one of the writers. 

#46 Posted by LadyShayne (131 posts) -

I saw that and loved it but had no idea it would actually be for sale. I might as well rename my credit card the "Valve Voucher" and just make it official.

Well, she's clearly holding a Portal Gun. So it spoils that the game might have portals in it. Also, plants.
