just in case anyone was wondering - tbh i'm surprised nobody mentioned it earlier (maybe on irc..?)

The game is not a lie. (it's a promo event for steam now supporting macs)

well accounts are free as well; so it's really just the cost of being inconvenienced to sign up and download the steam client.

Yeah, but Steam is a background process. Portal's old enough it might run on my computer, but I don't need another background process.
