Default Portal is FREE!

until mauy May 24th ...so hurry

I thought Portal was cool when I tried the demo, but never bothered to purchase the game and it kind of fell out of mind....
Now Valve is offering it for FREE, I'm not passing it up. Just log into your Steam account or go here:

Hmm... I already have the orange box. I wonder if I can grab another copy as a gift and keep it till I find someone who wants it.

Let me know if that works as I am in the same boat. My son has just started playing this on my account. Guess it is a great time to make his own Steam account and pick this one up for his own account.
