As reported earlier today in Edge, Portal 2, which is set for a U.S. release date of April 19th, could be released earlier on Steam through a promotion requiring gamers to play an indie game bundle detailed in a Portal 2 ARG storyline.
The Potato Sack Bundle, name for the potato references found in the Portal 2 ARG, consists of the following 13 games:
Aaaa! A Reckless Disregard For Gravity
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Super Meat Boy
The Wonderful End Of The World
1… 2… 3… Kick It!
Defense Grid: The Awakening
There are counters tallying the number of times these games are booting up Steam, so it is up to players to expedite the process and unlock Portal 2 early. This is a great promotion in that not only will Portal fans play the hotly anticipated sequel early, but this is also a chance for indie developers to gain more exposure and promote their games. When players pick up the bundle, they will also unlock a special potato hat that can be used in Team Fortress 2. If you already own one of the games in the bundle, you have the option to give it to one of your friends. Finally, the bundle costs only £27.22 ($44.29), a savings of 75% from the total cost of all these games at retail price. So, what are you waiting for? Go pick up the bundle now and get your game on!
