Portal 2's Chell nearly married a turret

Still Alive inspired by God Hand's end credits.

At some point in Portal 2's development protagonist Chell was slated to marry a turret, Valve announced during a panel at PAX Prime.

As reported by GameInformer, Valve writer Erik Wolpaw explained that Chell was set to find a tribe of abandoned turrets ruled by the colossal Animal Turret King. It would marry off one of its turrets to Chell after she helped the civilization.
