The Cake maybe so; but the t-shirt certainly isn't a lie. All it has taken is this tweet alone to send everyone who has ever heard of Half-Life into an absolute frenzy. But the question is simple: a Valve-shaped slip of the tongue, or one of the greatest trolls of the year?
Seattle-based videogame developer Chandana Ekanayake attended a local dev event yesterday, only to see who he claims to be "a Valve employee" wearing the t-shirt above. Over two-hundred stories and a Twitter trend later, and we'll admit it's wonderful to think about the possibility of a HL sequel again. Please do not let us down!
