Well, here’s a hint:
For those of you not up on these things, that’s a headcrab, featured in the games Half-Life and Half-Life 2, by the video game company Valve Software, which I visited on my trip.
What did I see there? I can’t tell you (I signed an NDA).
What did I do there? I can’t tell you (see above).
Did I have a good time? Oh, yeah.
Should you, as a video game fan, be immensely, immensely jealous? See above.
I can say this: If you’re a gamer, I think you’re going to like what’s coming down the pike from Valve. Even the stuff I saw in rough form was very cool. I can also say that the folks at Valve were all very smart, very talented and building really interesting stuff. As I said, when you see it (eventually), you’ll probably agree.
In all, a very nice tour of the chocolate factory, if you know what I mean. I’m glad I went.
