Portal dev leaves Valve

Kim Swift makes a leap into casual games with Airtight Games

Kim Swift and her team were plucked straight out of college by Valve to create the mighty Portal, the awesome puzzle FPS that we badly need more of. If we get it though, Swift won't be a part of it (unless she's just finished it).

"I've learned so much and had some amazing experiences at Valve," Swift said. "But when I heard I had the opportunity to work on innovative titles with my friends over at Airtight, I couldn't pass it up."

Word is she'll head up a team to work on "more diverse" games. Let's just hope they're as good as Portal and not casual shovelware games, eh?
