    Friend of mine tipped this:

    When you click the link to the Portal page on Steam, it says "Install Game" instead of "Buy" or anything. That must mean it's free, right?

    Tested in the EU, no idea what it does for other regions:D
    Cybrnook, qubit, freakshow and 5 others say thanks.

    I would have missed this if you had not posted it. I downloaded it, played it, and beat it already. It is short but fun!
