Portal 2 Co-Writer Jay Pinkerton is Back at Valve


Eurogamer has the story.

Quote:
Valve veteran Jay Pinkerton has returned to the developer a year after he left the company.

Pinkerton left last June, following other high profile departures from Erik Wolpaw, Chet Faliszek, and DOTA 2 writer Marc Laidlaw.

Now, thanks to eagle-eyed Redditor OWLverlord (via PC Gamer), it seems Pinkerton is back on Valve's staff page, listed under the "Other Experts" category.

Pinkerton co-wrote not just Portal 2, but also contributed to Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. He also penned the Team Fortress 2 comics, which has some Redditors speculating that's what he's back to do.

Good deal! Game writers are always a but on the under rated side. The lead designer gets all the credit, but it is the writer who makes it all work.

I miss Chet and Erik. Ran into them back in the Old Man Murray days; they are super talented and it's no wonder they got snapped up.

I didn't see the same sharp wit after they went to Valve but I'm sure they had to be much more careful in the corp environment. Their "Time to Crate" scale is still as good a metric today as it was then.
