Portal 2 Will Not Be A Retread
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Gamasutra recently posted comments from Valve Software's Erik Wolpaw about the upcoming Portal 2. Saying that he did not want to "resurrect a three-year-old meme," the developer promised new gameplay and an interesting story for the first person puzzler sequel.

Wolpaw said that, as a direct sequel, Portal 2 would revisit many elements of the original Portal, including its memorable antagonist GLaDOS, but that the team has been careful not to retread too much of the same ground. After all, the original Portal was received so well in part because it was such a surprise.

"The cubes are in there because they're a gameplay element, and obviously, GLaDOS is back, but there's a bunch of new gameplay and we want to tell an interesting new story," he said.

"We didn't jettison everything, but I absolutely do not want to try and resurrect a three-year-old meme. That seems like it would be kind of sad. It's not a good idea."
