well ok , that's very impressive . I know valve making games for a nintendo platform would lose them a little bit of gamers' cred but with their steam sales they could always gain more.

I wonder if Portal for 3DS could be a good fit?

I think it would be. I would download this in a heartbeat if it was on the e-shop

Where are all the homebrew Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 games? It's always DS-this and DS-that. ;-)

Further proof that a neat art style can hide an underpowered system.

I'd be willing to pay $60 for an official bundle of Portal and it's sequel on 3DS. No joke.

As for Portal on the regular DS...this is impressive, but it's kinda like trying to make Gears of War work on a Nintendo 64. Okay, that example may be a bit of an exaggeration, but you get what I mean. A lot is compromised graphically .

It wouldn't be without a Circle Pad Pro. Aiming with the face buttons would be very clunky, but on the other hand a stylus scheme would give you only one trigger when you need at least two, and would cause severe cramping. People got cramps bad enough supporting the DS with one hand, but this is made much worse by the need to apply constant pressure on the circle pad to keep it under your thumb. Nintendo even admitted this by releasing a stand for Kid Icarus. There's a reason why we aren't even seeing as many FPS games on 3DS as we did on DS, despite the system's more advanced graphics.

I'm sure some people would also love to see Minecraft on 3DS, but as the system currently is, it wouldn't be a good fit.

The way they moved look similar to Metroid Prime Hunters. Perhaps they used the same engine?

3ds version. Contact Valve immediately and start making it while waiting their answer! Two player local coop and you have my 60€!!!

DStal is the project title, and it reminds me a lot of that DS game by Renegade Kid called MOON.

Wow. Wowowow!

But being the realist I am, I think a homebrew team probably isn't going to have puzzles as interesting as -the- Portal.

I was hoping someone would have a quote from the publishers or developers about Portal not being made for Wii.
