Consider the following: Through carefully placed hints and tips, as well as some clever marketing and masking on their part, Valve teases that Episode 3 or possibly Half Life 3 may be upcoming. Through some clever sleuthing, denizens of the internet have drawn a link between the hazy “hacked” Portal 2 information and drawn a handful of conclusions.
Via internet sleuthing with Valve’s latest ARG, we present the following.
Exhibit A: The mysterious outline
Through the use of some creative masking, these internet sleuths managed to create an image from this assortment of data. The result is seen below.
Exhibit B: The Borealis
Alright, so they manage to make an image out of it. Big whoop, it’s still a bit of a stretch.
That is until…
What do you make of this? Is this Valve hinting at a possible release of Episode 3 or…dare we dream…Half Life 3? Or is this merely the masturbatory exertions of a drooling collective?
Take from this what you will.
