Portal Designer Heads To Dark Void Studio

Kim Swift, best known for being one of the students-turned-Valve-developers behind Narbacular Drop and team leader for its better-known successor Portal has left the house of Half-Life for the den of Dark Void.

Swift is joining Airtight Games, the studio behind Capcom's almost-finished jet-pack action game Dark Void. She will be a project lead.

"I've learned so much and had some amazing experiences at Valve," Swift said in a press release announcing the move. "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."

Swift was last seen by Kotaku in Tokyo, where she was demonstrating Left 4 Dead 2 and helping members of this website find a chainsaw with which to slice zombies.

Not that Kotaku was expecting any, but this news sheds no light on a Portal 2, other than to confirm that should such a sequel be made it won't have one of its chief creators involved.
