Valve has released the video trailer for their recently-announced physics-based puzzle game, Portal. The game appears to be a new version of Narbacular Drop, a student project featured in the IGF Student Showcase last year. As mentioned in an interview with Gamastura:
GS: Do you (yet) have any success stories or positive experience based on showing the student game to people in the game industry (praise, actually getting a job in the biz, etc)?
Every year, DigiPen puts on an expo for the senior class to allow developers to take a look at our final projects. We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to speak with representatives of Valve and they were excited about what we were doing. Because of Narbacular Drop, our team is now collaborating with Valve.
