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!

Last year we created Weighted Wonderland, a bonus map for Portal 2 full of holiday cheer. Well it's that time of year again, so how about a second part?

We're still working on it, though progress is slow as usual. A lot of us are dealing with school, finding work, etc. and have personal projects that aren't A&K, so work is usually done in small but productive bursts where we can find the time.

In addition, most of what we've been working on for the last year or two is stuff we'd like to keep secret until everyone gets to try the mod out for themselves, which is why we haven't published much.

Your project looks great and I'm glad you guys are still working on it! I have a question regarding GLaDOS. What will you be doing for her regarding her design? Will you be merging the designs of both of them together? I'm quite curious.

Her appearance will be based on the Portal 2 version.

Will her body be moving like the model in Portal 2, or not?

I think it'd be cool if they tried to recreate her P1 animations using her P2 rig. Maybe even redesign her components to look similar to how they looked pre-wake up in P2. Just an idea.

Because isn't the point of GLaDOS looking different between P1 and P2 is because she was destroyed and rebuilt?

And another idea for the boss battle, maybe they could go bit more differently and use new mechanics, like the reconfigurable panels, crushers, and design-wise include the generator above her chamber since due to her destruction only the end of the generator remains and she takes lots of stuff out and it's much smaller and simplified.
