Valve has introduced Aperture Desk Job, a free game that’s set within the Portal universe and is ready for launch on March 1.
Aperture Desk Job appeared on Steam with little warning earlier in the present day and is described as a “free playable short for Valve’s new Steam Deck”. That “short” bit appears vital too in the event you’re hoping for a full-length expertise. If you are additionally hoping that it is some type of prelude to Portal 3, Valve has you lined with a message on Aperture Desk Job’s Steam web page – “Not Portal 3!”.
So what’s Aperture Desk Job? Its Steam Page describes it as, “Aperture Desk Job reimagines the been-there-done-that genre of walking simulators and puts them in the lightning-spanked, endorphin-gorged world of sitting still behind things. You play as an entry-level nobody on their first day at work — your heart full of hope and your legs full of dreams, eager to climb that corporate ladder. But life’s got other plans, and they all involve chairs.”
Although Valve is fast to level out that Aperture Desk Job is not Portal 3, it does say, “Lower your expectations: This is not a sequel to Portal. Now get ready to raise them slightly, because it is in the expanded universe of those games. Desk Job puts you squarely in the driver’s seat at Aperture Science. Then quickly removes the driving part and adds a desk in front of the seat.”
The remainder of the Steam description is a really tongue-in-cheek manner of claiming that Aperture Desk Job will not price you something. Although Aperture Desk Job looks as if it was made to point out off the Steam Deck, it will be playable on PC so long as you are not utilizing mouse and keyboard.
Although the Steam web page is usually very sarcastic and divulges little about what you may really be doing in Aperture Desk Job, it looks as if a sitting simulator that runs you thru a few of the Steam Deck features. The screenshots present Aperture Science, a blue robotic that resembles Weatley, and a number of other totally different areas within the lab.
Guess we’ll discover out extra of what Aperture Desk Job is about when it launches totally free on March 1.
