Valve has released a sneak peek of the Portal 2 puzzle creator and the new map editor looks absolutely fascinating. According to the developer, the next major update to Portal 2 will make the puzzle creator far simpler and more fun to "create and distribute your own Portal 2 puzzles."
How will it work, you might be wondering. Well, the puzzle creator will "let players easily carve out their creations in a straightforward but powerful way." Once complete, players will be able to immediately upload their creations to their Steam Cloud and share them with other players online. Valve is also building their own community site to house all of the new puzzles.
While Valve gave absolutely no indication of when this fabulous puzzle creator will be released, they did leave us with a few images of what the new puzzle creator will look like. Check out the first one above, and this next one below to get an idea of what they're going for.
