Erik Wolpaw and Chet Faliszek, The Unexpurgated Version

Funambulism has published the full-length interview that Dan Griliopoulos did for IGN PC UK this week with Portal 2 writers Erik Wolpaw and Chet Faliszek.  It is a very light-hearted read, covering a variety of topics – from the writing and design of the current game to past works and lots and lots of general silliness.  Of note is one particular question:

Does the co-op story tie into the main story?
Erik: Yes

Is that something you’re able to talk about?
Erik: No; we can say that the co-op story happens after the singleplayer story. Having said that, you don’t need to necessarily need to play them in that order. But you know that apeture science isn’t going to get blown off the face of the earth by the end of Portal 2.

A very good read, no matter which version you choose… but BEWARE, MINOR SPOILERS abound!
