It’s no secret that everyone loves Portal, and that Portal 2 stands a good chance of being the game of 2011 in my humble view. But could a movie like this help bring the concept that makes Portal unique to a bigger audience?

With a score reportedly by Mike Zarin of Inception fame, the short is “1.5 years in the making” by fan and filmmaker Dan Trachtenberg, according to First Showing, which ponders:

In other news, Gabe Newell has told Eurogamer that a bunch of Portal 2 downloadable content offering “more of the same” is cming to all platforms in September… and will be FREE. Awesome.
