The lights are on
Valve is known for making polished and incredible games. In case you missed one of the billboards or commercials scattered about, Left 4 Dead 2 is one of those great games. I got to step foot in Valves office-of-awesome, and was immediately greeted by any fan’s dream come true.You can't miss Valve's signature...valve. It's there right as soon as you walk in. I almost tripped over it.Directly behind it you can see the the developer's plethora of awards. Also, Bellevue, Washington.Sometimes I just sit and stare at this picture, picking out all the awesome stuff I wish was on my nightstand. I'd love to wake up in the morning and see any of this stuff right next to my alarm clock. Well, except maybe for the thing in the upper right... eesh.A trophy awarded to Valve for "Raising the Bar on Action Games." It's never a bad idea to engrave a pun in gold.Spot the object that doesn't belong!These bad boys are on either side of the doorway. I tried to pry one off, but they're really stuck on there. I could have really used a...ack, the irony.Who doesn't have a Team Fortress 2 skateboard, wrestling championship belt, and head crab in their room? Pfft...A giant L4D wine bottle and a Heavy from Team Fortress 2. Can you say... Heavy drinker? No. No you can't. That's a bad joke.I'm not sure what this thing is. Anybody help me out on this one?I was having a hard time figuring out what game this is from. Did Valve develop Endless Ocean?That's only what I found in the lobby. It's hard to believe a fortress of such unadulterated badassery is tucked away in such an unassuming office building. One can only wonder what's lurking behind the many doors of Valve's office...
Email the author Tim Turi, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
i wish all of that stuff was in my house. you guys at valve are awesome!
If I didn't already love Valve, this pushes me over the top. Not only do they have good taste in making video games, they have good taste in decorations. Keep it up Valve!
Gameinformer did an article showing valves studio already. I've seen that Valve in the room with the aquarium so many times already.....
This is like, AMAZING! If only I had gordon freeman's crowbar...
nice pics, I want those pc's lol.
By far the best thing is the valve.
wow this thing looks really cool!
valve's lobby is awesome,i'm not sure what that thing is but it look's cool.
maybe there fish tank was just a fish tank?
Wow, that would be cool to work there
Niiiiice. Run this feature more often! =)
Developer offices are sooo cool : )
Crowbars a plenty in that place! Looks awesome though
It's gotta be a blast to work there.
Gold crowbar!! They should put one in the next half life. Maybe in Call od Dudes you could unlock a gold crowbar to replace your knife. It would be the best gold weapon
Great games, decor, flavor text...what can't valve do right?
Awesome stuff! Show us more of these developer studio tours soon, GI!
I pray to have a collection of stuff like that someday......
