Default Valve's employee handbook...

This was apparently "leaked"...

Very interesting. No boss in this company.

Employees can choose what they work on and when a product is good enough to be released... This might explain the loooong wait for Half-Life 2 episode 3/Half-Life 3: Either it's not perfect enough yet, or the employees prefer to work on other projects...

That is a good way to work so that shitty games aren't released due to deadlines lol

Someone come out and confirm/deny the source of this file. Hey I've seen fake Hitler diaries and "How to run to your nearest American embassy".

It's been 5 years since Half-Life 2: Episode Two; I'm starting to lose hope that I'll be alive when the sequel comes.

Well Valve probably realized that they can make a whole lot more money selling other peoples games then making their own, can't really blame them for not being so active with the Half-Life 2 sequel.

Don't lose hope. Duke Nukem Forever took forever, but it finally came out. Yes it is repetitive, but hey.

The whole thing about "Episode 3" is that Valve, in an attempt to distract us, released Portal and Portal 2. And these two games are so awesome that we forgave Valve for a little.

How is that not a reason to hopelessly succumb to dismay?

I found that link in Steam's news section. If it is a fake, then Valve is actively NOT denying it.

The United States government neither confirms nor denies the existence of Area 51. Food for thought.
