Alive & Kicking is now officially on Steam Greenlight! And at the time of writing this article, we're actually #1 of 1,515 games in Greenlight - all thanks to your support. Hopefully it can maintain its position and earn a place on Steam in the next round of games. If you haven't yet seen Alive & Kicking on Greenlight, click here.

Meanwhile, the mod itself continues to take shape. In the last large batch of screenshots, we showed how we reworked our lighting and cleaned up the tests. The decision to do this mostly came from urging from the community, but also because we felt like the previous visual theme was inconsistent and made the mod feel sloppy. After posting those screenshots, we actually made entirely new textures for the maps, combining the design of Portal 2's textures with the grungy characteristic concrete from the first Portal.

Thanks for your support so far - with your help, we can get A&K onto everybody's favorite distribution platform. Expect even more media updates if and/or when we finally make the cut!

Are you devs considering making a custom Chell model that looks exactly like her in Portal 2, but wearing her jumpsuit normally? I think you totally should do it!

I UNDERSTAND WH- erm, stupid new keyboard.


I understand why exact release dates cant be announced like "8/1/2056" but can you guys give an estimated quarter? like "Q3 1984"

Because 1984 already happened so we have to pick a different one.

Originally I thought it would be pointless to remake Portal with the Portal 2 engine. But after looking at the screenshots, I'm surprised how much better it looks.

Is this mod still going on? I know it's alot of work, but we don't really get updates on what's going on, so I feel a little in the dark.

We're still going, but development has slowed as a few of us are going back to school and whatnot
