   Chell never looked so good.
 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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.
