When you beat Portal you're treated to this song. It's called "Still Alive" by Jonathan Coulton ( Loved it so much I made it into a video. Enjoy!

Edit: Added in music credits. Thanks!

... nifty little video Scott, you had a simple but interesting ideia that was pretty well implemented and made for an enjoyable flash! But let's get technical:

- The drawings and animation were very simple, but spot on. I think you made a pretty good choice for how to draw and animated GLADos face (although the "red face" was a bit bizzare) with lot's of facial diversity, making this was a very solid aspect of the movie. Oh, and it was perfectly sincronized with the music, so good job there.

- The music, well, it's not really fair to jugde the choice of such an excelent music...

- The humour wasn't the laugh out loud humour was I expecting from you (and that you usually acomplish with Vgcats!), but a more put-a-smile-on-my-face (and smirk) type humour. That's not a problem, however, just diferent from what I'm used to and it did put a smile in my face, which shows that I enjoyed it.

All in all, a very good tribute to a fantastic game, but it fell slightly short of excelent, possibly because I think it could have been a bit more creative... ormaybe it's just that there's been so many diferent tributes to the portal on the web in the past month that "we've seen it all"? In any case, a very enjoyable and well made movie, cheers.

Hahaha, pretty good

Probably would've been a bit better if you had drawn the main character of Portal in it instead of the generic "stick figure". Though, I guess you were pretty hard pressed for time and all.

That aside it was well made, the lip syncing was perfect and the facial expressions on the computer's screen were very cute. Really nice work.

BTW: I enjoy the comic, but I'm a bit surprised though... Those two didn't even make a cameo?
