    So it all began on April 1st, when Steam got, at 10AM PST, spammed with indie games updates. These updates contained... potatoes. And maybe even more — turns out it's an ARG! Who knows, maybe it's about Episode Three! (well, a man can dream.)

    Maybe Valve gave every developer the opportunity to release "funny" changelogs?

    Super Meat Boy now has a cookie or something as the character.
    Also it set its quality setting to low which is probably a bug though.

    Edit:
    Oh shit the level editor is out.

    Something big is going to go down.

    Portal 2 Demo april fools joke. Everyone rages. Valve laughs at us.

    Then at exactly 12:59pm they release the actual Portal 2 Demo. Double-fooled.

    Then they tell us its only for mac pre-orders only. Triple fooled.

    The worst thing about this is that Steam is still absolutely fucking dumb when it comes to updates so it keeps freezing while it starts all those downloads aaaaah

    Updates to Team Fortress 2 have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

    A thousand new headgears
    Added new broken stuff and bugs to the game

    But yeah, we need something more than update notes to make this April Fools remarking. Please Valve do something awesome.

    Character descriptions.
    The one for the Horzine head of security with the burned face is just 'rawr rawr rawr', while the black guy in the latest pack is apparently 'a current member of the A-team'.
    Found nothing else.

    It's unrelated, they've added something in for April fools day probably but it hasn't got anything to do with potatoes.
