ASCIIpOrtal strikes a chord with us

Sometimes the creativity of the indie game scene can help push forward a development style the mainstream has left behind; in the case of this post we're referring to the wonderful world of ASCII! Indie dev Cymon's Games is hard at work developing ASCIIpOrtal, an ASCII-coded game inspired by the popular Valve puzzler, Portal.

While a video of the game in action (found after the jump) has been the talk of the Internet for the last few days, everyone at Joystiq wanted to chime in and shower Joe Larson -- and the rest of the people involved at Cymon's Games -- with high-fives and fist-pumps. Expect ASCIIpOrtal to land on a PC near you "soon-ish." New-school, meet old-school ... have fun hanging out.
