In this 2008 GDC talk, developers Kim Swift and Erik Wolpaw expound upon the topic of integrating narrative into the game design of Valve's smash 2007 hit Portal.

It was an insightful talk that shed light on Valve's game design and development process at the time, as Wolpaw and Swift walked through their approach to integrating Portal's narrative elements into the game's remarkable series of puzzles and challenges.

It was a great talk that's well worth a watch, so take advantage of the fact that it's currently completely free to watch over on the official GDC YouTube channel!
