That Time Chell Almost Got Married in Portal

PAX, whether Prime or East (or the newly announced Australia), is always a good time to hear snippets of interesting secrets about your favorite games. Today, we bring you a story of adventure, daring, and romance… okay, more like forcedĀ marriage than romance. Would it be useful to know that Animal Kings are involved?

Essentially, it concerns an abandoned plot thread from Portal 2 where, after Chell helps a friendly tribe of lost turrets, the tribe’s Giant Animal King turret would marry her to one of his turrets, which would have then followed Chell around the rest of the game.
