Where To Find All Of The Potatoes In The Potato Sack Bundle: The Potato Sack Guide

Potatoes are electrochemical batteries made primarily of starch, but they're also cute little badges that you can get for your Steam profile by doing certain random Portal 2 related tasks in all of the games in Steam's Potato Sack Bundle. The potatoes originally started out as a source of power to get GLaDOS, the snarky computer running the Aperture Science research facility in Portal 2, back up and running.

There are 36 potatoes to be found throughout the 13 Potato Sack games. Once you perform the task in-game, a special login screen will pop up and you have to input a password that will unlock the potato. The potatoes are no longer being used to power up GLaDOS, that's now done through actually playing the 13 indie games, but if you find all 36 of the potatoes then Valve has promised a special surprise once Portal 2 does release.

After the break you'll find the full list of potatoes, where to find them, and the password you need to input to unlock the badge.

FIRST: Go join http://steamcommunity.com/groups/nelipot for a free potato!
