2009’s SEO-challenging AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!!-- A Reckless Disregard for Gravity was basically the bits from Mirror’s Edge where you miss-time a jump and fall to your death turned into a whole game. If you missed it the first time round it’s now been re-released as a “semi-sequel” titled AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome. It features all 82 levels from the original game, as well as 43 new ones and a “new lighting system and fancy shader effects.” It’s currently on Steam for just £3.49/$4.99, too.

Dejobaan is working on a "semi-sequel" to 2009's AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!!, a game which the developer cheekily notes it hasn't "officially announced" yet.

The reveal came courtesy of a new contest, which asks fans to create fake ads, likely to be used as billboards in the upcoming new game. Winners will not only have their creation appear in the game, but will also get a free copy on Steam "once it's out at the end of the year."

In order to enter, fans must find a royalty-free image and come up with "hilarious" text to put on top. Fans can submit up to "one billion" entries, and almost any image format will be accepted. Entries must be received by September 30th (that's the end of the week, folks) for consideration.

For full contest details, check out Dejobaan's blog.

Announcement - Valve

The indie developers involved in the potato sack sale say that they were given "free reign" to design the ARG, as well as "access to any IP we wanted." Edge have been catching up with the potato sack developers to find out exactly how the enormous ARG came together.







Audiosurf creator Dylan Fitterer explains how Valve initiated the ARG. “Valve invited a bunch of us indie developers to come out last December for a ‘Cross Game Design Event. It was a bit mysterious, but definitely sounded like fun."



“Jeep coordinated with us most closely, but Gabe kicked it all off. He asked us to work with them in creating an event that put launching Portal 2 into the community’s hands. We were given free rein to design it and were also given access to any IP we wanted.”



Dejobaan president Ichiro Lambe “It felt very natural. Valve gave us a framework and said: ‘You know all about GLaDOS. Now, she wants us to break out into the world. Go make it happen.’"



Fitterer explains that the number of people playing Audiosurf during the ARG jumped from 300 a day to 6000 a day. There's no news yet on the number of potato sack games sold during the ARG. Edge's full featureon the ARG is set to arrive tomorrow.

title="Permanent Link to Portal 2 levels appear in potato sack games, clues suggest Portal 2 could be released early">



When we took an overview of the remarkable happenings in the potato sack ARG yesterday, the trail was going cold, and it looked as though things were winding down. For a few hours at least, they were, then it all kicked off again. New updates have added Portal 2 themed levels to many of the games in the potato sack sale. The voice of Glados has started appearing in menu screens and secret messages, and to top it all, Bit.Trip Beat creators, Gaijin, dropped a heavy hint that completing the ARG could cause Portal 2 to be released early.



Adding fuel to that theory, today Portal 2 became available to pre-load through Steam. We've collected videos and screenshots of the new Portal 2 themed levels from potato sack sale below.



The Ball







The Ball gets a good extra hour of free Portal 2 levels, including one devoted to bowling over Aperture Science turrets. The team have done a great job of recreating Portal 2's assets in the Unreal 3 engine.

 



Audiosurf







The Portal 2 update in Audiosurf replaces your ship with a portal gun, and adds companion cube blocks to the courses. The best update is the addition of new Portal 2 songs like the one in the video above. After a couple of listens, it really gets stuck in the brain.

 



Bit.Trip Beat







Glados has well and truly invaded Bit.Trip Beat with this difficult new level. Gaijin hinted in their latest blog post that more ARG clues will be revealed to those who achieve perfect completions of the new levels.

 

 

AaAaAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity







Glados has a lot to say about falling off tall objects after the latest Portal 2 update to A Reckless Disregard for Gravity. Creators Dejobaan also created a brilliant overview of the progress of the ARG so far, ending with Glados' invasion of the potato sack games.

 



RUSH







What better way to combine Portal 2 with Rush than to add companion cubes? It's almost as cute as the Portal 2 level in Toki Tori below.



Toki Tori







Toki Tori's levels provided plenty of useful clues during the ARG. Their silhouettes formed decipherable codes that helped to unlock the passwords for the Aperture Science login screens. The new level has Glados hanging in the background, watching your every move.

 



Killing Floor



The new Killing Floor map has you fending off waves of zombies in a massive new Aperture Science map. The familiar human vendors have been replaced by a robot that looks just like one of Glados' personality spheres. It looks great, too, with its overgrown test chambers and giant buttons. You'll find their official screens of the new map below.



The potato sack sale is still going, offering 13 great indie titles at 75% off. You can buy each one individually for 50% off while the offer lasts. Head over to Steam to take advantage of the deal

Product Update - Valve
Fixed potato bugs, and am now beset by spindly, hairy things that shift and turn and crawl through the night. I know that speed is of the essence here, but I sometimes can't suss out what's hidden in plain view. What's going wrong? Why is the system degrading? Because it is. This is an incredibly brief account of what has been happening, and there are all sorts of intricacies that I've missed out.
