Has anyone seen "Ready Player One"?

Why does the end credit mention "Valve Corporation"? I didn't spot a single character from any of the Valve games in the film.

Maybe not a character, but probably a prop in the background that's only visible for half a second, who knows.

All I could find is that its something to do with Portal.

Did not see anything Valve related myself tho.

They do have portals in the movie, but then again portals are so often used that it's generic enough not to be directly attributable to Portal the game.

There's certainly no portable portal device in the film.

Likely some copyrighted element in the background, or perhaps they acted as advisers on certain aspects? I've not seen it but it is apparently dripping with references to existing franchises.

I haven't seen it yet but others strongly recommended it.

I thought at least they should make a reference to headcrabs or Gordon, since Half-Life is just about the most iconic FPS game of all time.

But I didn't see any.
