American film and TV producer, screenwriter, director, actor and composer J. J. Abrams is a force to be reckoned with. In the nerd-world, he's a jack of all trades. And now, his loyal fans have the opportunity to delve further into his artistry, since, according to Polygon, Abrams and video game developer Valve are linking up to create a video game.
To further excite salivating fans, the symbiotic Valve-Abrams partnership might also create a film based on Portal or Half Life. These two should work well together, considering their obvious obsession with science fiction and horror. In the last few years, Valve has given us Portal 2, and a Left 4 Dead sequel, both of which were met with critical acclaim. Abrams is set to release a much-anticipated Star Trek sequel, and he has also been called upon to work on the next Star Wars installment.
Currently, Valve's main initiatives are developing new games and improving their current titles. Their focus has long been on their current titles, offering popular sequels, all while paying close attention to detail. There's still no word on whether Valve is developing a gaming console for their Steam application, their entertainment platform designed to manage and distribute a number of their games.
With both Abrams and Valve incredibly busy, it's hard to imagine when they'll begin designing a new video game. Still, it's not hard to imagine that the game that springs from the minds of these two clever entities will be an all-around hit. With such an incredible array into futuristic thinking, the blend of Abrams and Valve is enticing. Here's hoping their game is created sooner, rather than later.
