Hello guys, I'm sure a lot of people will be interested in the remake of the awesome 1986 adventure game Portal.
Basically it was a text game where you had to browse computer archives to unravel a great story about the disparition of mankind. Great story telling, and the scenario was adapted as a novel later.
Now I'm a big fan of this game and seeing it remade is just so great not to share it with people, especially people on RPS who have a more "broad" sense of what gaming is and do not only cover triple-A games. Their team is made of people in the industry and I wouldn't be shocked if I learned they already asked for funding in big companies but were denied.
They have reasonable funding demands (900k) and aren't afraid to say it (tax money, marketing, etc.). They want to make a great game... The thing is they lack media coverage and did not advance much sadly. I'm hoping those few words will help spread the word!
Here's an entry on wikipedia about the original game : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal_(interactive_novel)

Do not worry, the recreation of the game wouldn't be text-based, they would remake it a third person game, still highly story-driven.
