Chet Faliszek Discusses Portal 2
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Video Games Daily has posted a new interview with Valve Software's Chet Faliszek about the company's upcoming action puzzler, Portal 2. In the interview Faliszek discussed honoring the original Portal, co-op multiplayer dynamics, and puzzle difficulty.

I guess the more complicated puzzles will be in co-op.

It’s this weird thing – we bring in a lot of outside testers in to test, and it depends on the person. Some things people struggle on one person will get, some things that are super easy people will just flail at… And we try to make sure that if you know how to solve it, if you’ve figured the puzzle out, you can solve it. You don’t have this dexterity problem that you’re not going to be able to do it.

That was me a few minutes ago!

Right. And there’s a lot of “just shut up and listen – follow my way, this is the way to do it”. And you’ll have these situations where you’ll say “OK, that was one way to do it, but I bet we could have done it this way and I want to go back and play that puzzle”. There may be more complexity in co-op, but probably [the puzzles] are equally solvable because you have two people looking at it, and just having that one person help you break through when you get stuck.
