PostSubject: Possible early release tomorrow   Thu Apr 14, 2011 9:53 pm

In another thread i talked about an ARG that valve was running

I said:

My theory is that anyone that pre-ordered on steam and puts in the correct password(s) on at least 1 of those login screens will gain access to Portal 2 early on 4/15/2011 at 9AM

Well many clues were found and led to this page: http://www.aperturescience.com/a/b/c/d/g/h/abcdgh/
Which is an official site for portal
If you search for the site on google: http://www.google.com/search?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.aperturescience.com%2Fa%2Fb%2Fc%2Fd%2Fg%2Fh%2Fabcdgh%2F
The title for it is listed as: "this be the countdown to Portal 2′s"

So theres a good chance that Portal 2 will be released tomorrow on steam

EDIT:
It turned out to be a marketing ploy for 13 indie games
The more you play those games the faster Portal 2 will be released
Problem is some of them seem to require more then 100,000 hours or people, im not sure what its measuring, it says CPUs so i would think people but i dont think 100,000 people would ever play some of these games
Each bar doesnt have to be filled, the only one that matters is the white bar
It has gone up about 2% in the last hour, at this rate it will release in about 50 hours, about 2 days earlier

Im using it as a way to get people to gift me the games i want from the pack
The mods are closing threads about people getting gifted games from the pack Sad

I ended up not getting any games for free
I missed 3 opportunities to get something for free too
But i wasnt there when they were


Also "2 days earlier" was way off
The bar started at 1%, which i didnt know when i made those calculations, so it was really 4 days (2x more because it was half the progress when i thought it was double)

The progress never realy fluctuated, any fluctuation was minor, so i (and others) think it was rigged

Each time a bar was finished time was taken off the countdown clock
No more then 1 hour from each game would be taken off, some games only gave 30 mins
So even if all 13 were completed the earliest it could be released was 10 hours ahead of the normal release
Which is stupid with how much of a grind filling all the bars was

But the release should be in 3-4 hours
