Yes. I think that Valve employed some of those guys. It's a Portal tradition, involving students with fresh ideas.I just realized that paint reminded me of a game I just played yesterday. It was made by students at the same collage that the people who created Narbacular Drop were from. Its called "Tag". You can spray paint on surfaces and different colors have different affects.
It's a good chance PS3 is the reason for the delay in the first place.I'm betting my bottom dollar its gonna get delayed a few months before the release date, in a typical Valve fashion, obviously.
Don't even care anymore. I'm so gonna start torrenting Valve games at some point just out of spite.
