Jonathan Coulton still alive, making Portal 2 song

It’s not often that a single song stands out while playing a game, but Jonathan Coulton’s “Still Alive” played at the end of Portal did just that. You can’t have a conversations about Valve’s puzzler without squeaking “Just keep on trying until you run out of cake!” in a high-pitch female voice.

Awesome news, then; Coulton’s got something new for the sequel, Portal 2. The geek-musician tweeted earlier: “If this plane goes down, the Portal 2 song goes with it. It is in my pocket.”

And with that, millions of Portal fans across the world squeal with delight. The wait for the game’s release in April just got that bit harder.
