I for one, am excited. Prey was my favorite game of 2006 (that may or may not be saying much). But I was a huge fan of the portal technology (before that other Portal technology). The feel, the mechanics, and the revamped id4 Engine never looked better. Now that the sequel will hit light of day, makes me happy there is faith in the series. I am very interested to see what technology it’ll use and where the story will go next.
Also here’s a shameless plug to a video of mine from Prey, featuring an easter egg:
