Interactive Super 8 trailer buried inside Portal 2

Apr. 19, 2011by:

If we were a video game site, we'd be covering the release of Portal 2 non-stop, as it's one of the most anticipated titles of the year, but as we're movie driven, I'm just going to point you to this one piece of content hidden inside the game.

It's an interactive trailer for SUPER 8 that's listed under the "extras" portion of the game. And really, it's less of a trailer, and more of a game itself, as the video walkthough below (via Kotaku) shows.

There doesn't seem to be too terribly much to interact with, but I have a hunch if you take your time to explore, there are a few hidden clues here. You're on the train we see explode in the trailer, and again it does just that. We see the creature banging on the door to get out, and when it finally does, we hear its Cloverfield monster-esque roar.

Check it out below, and if you have Portal 2 yourself, tell us if you've found anything hidden in this minigame.

Extra Tidbit: Annnd how's Portal 2? First impressions?

Portal is one of many examples of why video games don't need to be adapted to the big screen. Some stories are best left with the medium that they were built with.

Valve never fails to impress me with their awesomeness. I have nothing but the highest expectations for everything they put out, and they've never let me down. They are truly the best!

Smart Idea, but...

...is it me, or does the creature kinda sound like every other creature since the T-Rex in Jurassic Park. They all sound a bit Rexy to me. Where's Ben Burtt when you need him?

This is really cool. I think the map is the most interesting part. Interestingly enough, looking at Area 51 on google maps reveals it to be grayed out. But this trailer is pretty awesome, I hope we can see more of these interactive trailers in the future.

More Fun than Clash of the Titans The Game

JJ Abrams is a marketing ninja.

Honestly, who saw that coming?

WOW, cool marketing.

It really is.

I thought Abrams said it wasn't a monster? It sure sounds like one.

Portal 2 is ok. It's no "How to Make an American Quilt" or "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," but, ya know, the writing is alright.

I'll have to check this out in-game. Seems pretty sweet.
