Portal Speedrun

In case anyone hasn't seen it already. I found it really fascinating to watch as a lot of the games glitches were exploited. Do you think the developers at Valve were aware of this?

Some of the level just leave you in a state of ".. wait huh?"

  1. In the commentary in Portal one they mention that in Chamber fifteen skilled playtesters could solve the puzzle in a few seconds flat by exploiting skills that normal players didn't yet realize they had. They didn't take this out because they wanted skilled players to be rewarded for discovering these ninja-esque tricks.

    With all the playtesting they do throughout the game there are very few things that slip past them. I'm sure most of these "glitches" they left in for players and fans to discover for themselves.
