    The composer of Still Alive, the infectious ditty that closed out Portal, has written a new tune for the impending sequel.

    Songwriter Jonathan Coulton confirmed its existence with the following tease on his Twitter feed: "Closing the doors. If this plane goes down, the Portal 2 song goes with it. It is in my pocket..."

    No further news regarding in what capacity the tune will feature, but you won't have to wait too long to find out. Valve's much anticipated sequel to its 2007 puzzler drops out of the ceiling on 22nd April.[/p]

    This was a triumph.

    You may also want to check out Coulton's cover of "Baby Got Back". Just classic.

    You spelled his name wrong. =P

    Should be a "O" on his last name, not a "A". [​IMG]

    But sweet! Great to hear he is back.

    I doubt any new song could surpass the almighty Still Alive song, but here's hoping that it gets close! [​IMG]

    The song never says the cake is a lie. It just says how delicious and moist it is.

    This is pretty good news. I doubt another writer would have been able to live up to the first song, so who better to hire than the one that wrote it?

    The cake isn't a lie, BTW. It's right there in the ending.

    The cake is considered a lie because GlaDos never intended to give it to you.
    So the correct sentence should be "the cake promisse is a lie", but that's not fun to say. So the cake IS a lie because you never got it, ony that GlaDos b1tch ate it (btw, how could GlaDos eat a cake? [​IMG]).

    Also, on topic, good to hear that, but i bet he will suffer a big pressure now (so supress the Still alive popularity).
