Portal: Still Alive
Portal: Still Alive was announced as an exclusive Xbox Live Arcade game at the 2008 E3 convention, and was released on October 22, 2008. It features the original game, 14 new challenges, and new achievements. The additional content was based on levels from the map pack “Portal: The Flash Version” created by We Create Stuff and contains no additional story-related levels. According to Valvespokesman Doug Lombardi, Microsoft had previously rejected Portal on the platform due to its large size. Portal: Still Alive was well-received by reviewers. 1UP‘s Andrew Hayward stated that, with the easier access and lower cost than paying for The Orange Box, Portalis now “stronger than ever”. IGN editor Cam Shea ranked it fifth on his top 10 list of Xbox Live Arcade games. He stated that it was debatable whether an owner of The Orange Box should purchase this, as its added levels do not add to the plot. However, he praised the quality of the new maps included in the game. The game ranked 7th in a later list of top Xbox Box Live titles compiled by IGN’s staff in September 2010.

Swift stated that future Portal developments would depend on the community’s reactions, saying, “We’re still playing it by ear at this point, figuring out if we want to do multiplayer next, or Portal 2, or release map packs.” Some rumors regarding a sequel arose due to casting calls for voice actors. On March 10, 2010, Portal 2 was officially announced for a release late in that year; the announcement was preceded by an alternate reality game based on unexpected patches made to Portal that contained cryptic messages in relation to Portal 2‘s announcement, including one that changed the fate of Chell at the end of the game. Though Portal 2 was announced for a Q4 2010 release, the game was eventually released on April 19, 2011.
