Valve is releasing a new game set in the Portal universe

The Steam Deck has officially launched and while Valve doesn't have a major game to launch alongside its new hardware, it has cooked up a smaller game set in the Portal universe. It might not be Portal 3, but Aperture Desk Job will be free, so it has that going for it. 

Aperture Desk Job is releasing on Steam tomorrow, the 1st of March. The game will be available for free to all Steam users, but it is also intended to celebrate the launch of the Steam Deck and give early buyers an optimised experience.

The game itself is a ‘reimagined' walking simulator, but without the walking. Instead, players will find themselves stuck in a desk job at Aperture Science, and we'll no doubt get some new story elements to expand on the Portal universe.

Valve has experimented with Portal spin-offs and smaller demos before. Previously, Valve also developed a Portal demo for the Valve Index, which was aimed at helping VR developers get to grips with the full feature set of the Valve Index controllers.

KitGuru Says: I'm not expecting more than 30 minutes of fun with this demo, but at least it is something. Valve has also recently announced plans to bring Portal 1 & 2 to the Nintendo Switch, so perhaps there is more planned for the series moving forward.
