The iconic Gabe Newell will appear in Crawl according to Powerhoof. Just recently, Crawl developer Powerhoof shared an image of Gabe in the game. Fans were happy and wanted to see more of him. However, Gabe and Valve’s consent was still required for Gabe Newell’s official appearance in the game.
So to see Valve’s reaction, Powerhoof asked Valve if they have any issue with Gabe appearing in their game. You will be happy to know that Valve has given the go ahead and Gabe Newell will be a part of Crawl.
@Powerhoof short sweet email from Valve today giving the go ahead for this silly thing 🙂 turns out Valve are cool- who knew?

Here’s an excerpt from the email sent by the Crawl developers:
You will be the most powerful character in the game, effectively building a perception in Crawl players that you would be a formidable opponent in combat. This would surely reduce the desire to battle you among our players, barring edge cases in which the player is incredibly powerful himself and is looking for a worthy opponent.
Gabe will appear as a massive monster in the game as soon as the next update for Crawl rolls-out. When it does, you will have to use the name “HL3” when you loadout.
Crawl is currently available on Steam Early Access and is getting a lot of attention from the community. You can also play the game for just $9.99.
