How Valve Got Their Logo

So this is my theory on how Valve software got their game startup logo. No skepticism needed-- I'm pretty sure this is the only way they could have gotten that image.

This movie takes place during 'The Passing' chapter. I was hoping to have this out the night that 'The Sacrifice' DLC came out, but it took a bit longer (as with all personal work). If you don't get it, you either have not played a L4D game or a Valve game. If this is the case, what the hell is wrong with you? Go play one already!

If you left a review, thank you! I DO read them all, so if I didn't respond to yours, you can still be sure that I read it. Much appreciated!

Edit: Frontpage!? YESSSSSSSSSSS!!! Thanks, NG!
Edit 2: Over 250,000 views!? Very cool. And just a note- I'm well aware that there was a previous logo. I played HL when it first came out. This movie has to do with the CURRENT logo!
Edit 3: What's that you say? Valve made this logo before l4d? Well you forgot one very important fact-- Valve has a time machine.



fransisc from l4d 1 in l4d 2 thats dont make sense


But the thing is, the ValvE logo is representing ValvE pouring our your brain and making you use it. ValvE makes puzzle games, and not just Portal..
When you think about it, half life are also puzzle games too.

First of, this awesome.

Secondly, let me drop some nerd-knowledge. There is a map in L4D2 that features the characters for L4D. And I could just notice by the surroundings that he did actually recreate that level. Nicely done...no timemachine needed

Thank you!


I haven't played L4D 2 yet, only L4D, but I'm at least 190% sure (and yes, I typed that correctly) that this is how Valve got their logo. Although as for it being in L4D, I assume Valve could see the future, got francis on a chopper over to the spot this was gonna happen, had him take the photo, and THAT's how they got the logo... oh yeah, and they had a time machine. |3

... Oh yeah, and this video was amazing, so 5/5, 10/10 for you, good sir. :D
