To celebrate the fact that Valve have finally made a Mac version of Steam, they're dolling out free copies of Portal to download.

For those who have no idea: Steam is a gaming program that allows you to download then play games on your computer. Theirs bloody loads on their and they can go down to around a pound sometimes. You'll have to download the Steam client and get an account sorted before buying or playing anything.

Portal is a short but fantastic Puzzle-First-Person-Shooter with a mysterious plot, brilliant black humour and a clever physics gun to fiddle with. If you've ever head someone say "The cake is a lie!" and wondered what they were on about, they got it from Portal.

I thought I'd spread the word.

Ummm...I only have info on the PC version but its on Mac too. Its the reason their giving it away free actually. Anyway, on PC, I can download it as an executable and move it around as needs be. I haven't a clue on a Mac but I should be the same as long as you save the downloadable installer rather than install it right there and then.

I could also be cause Google Chrome waits to be told to install anything after download....

Umm...The idea of Steam is that your supposed to be able to play your games from any computer that's connected to the internet. Apparent'y, game saves and this and that are uploaded to a big Steam server called 'Steam Cloud' and then can be accessed through any computer with Steam running on it.

If that's right, then you should be able to play Portal on both as long as you download the client and the game at least once I think...On the Mac and PC.
