In a recent interview, Valve writer Erik Wolpaw revealed that he’s fed up with internet memes surrounding “The Cake” and “Companion cubes” originating from Portal. Wolpaw, was the primary writer on Portal and is one of two writing leads in Portal 2.
It was announced at E3 that Portal 2 will be coming to the PS3 with steamworks which also ended up being the “surprise”, quoted by Valve a few weeks before the event kicked off.
Wolpaw later added,
In 2006, Wolpaw also won the Game Developers Choice Award for Best Writing for his story and dialogue contributions to Psychonauts while working for Double Fine Productions.
