Ever wondered what Valve's headquarters in Bellevue, Washington looks like from the inside? Wonder no more, as today we are given an inside look at the office space where games like Portal and Half-Life are made, thanks to images posted on Imgur (via Reddit).

The images come from the team that won Valve's 2013 "Saxxies" contest with their Team Fortress 2 "Lil Guardian Pyro" short. For their victory, Valve flew them to Bellevue for a tour of the offices and a chance to meet with some designers and get a look at in-development projects.

The images show off Valve's famous desks on wheels, the cafeteria, gym, and motion capture studio. We even get a glimpse at the latest Steam Controller, which was blurred for "reasons." If the guests got to see the rumored Half-Life 3, they didn't write about it or include any images. Oh well. We can still dream.

Is Valve's office everything you hoped it would be? Let us know in the comments below!
