No, the files themselves are encrypted and may even lack a few small critical files in order to operate properly.

While it's technically possible to decrypt and play a preloaded game, it is highly unlikely, and there is definitely no public way to do this.

no, you can't! just wait until the game comes out in a few days, not long now!

Some guys on Steam are saying it can be played in a couple of hours. You can keep your fingers crossed.

The only valid way to play it early is buy buying and playing the Potato Sack bundle.

There are no cheats to play it early.

But you can help by playing the games in the Potato sack pack to speed up the release date. The Wonderful End Of The World is maxed out so play the others.

Unfortunately, your downloaded copy of the game is missing a small amount of code that will allow it to run - or "unlock" it. As soon as the game becomes available, you can click to run it and this final bit will download. It should only take a second or two.

A workaround (like with all software) is possible. But it probably hasn't been discovered and never will be. As soon as the game is made available people will start cracking it and distributing it via torrents.

Unfortunately, you can't. Valve has insisted on releasing Portal 2 on April 19. No work around on this one. You can however, help release it earlier by playing games from the Potato Sack.

No way to cheat it. You've already got it, enjoy it, some of us can't get it yet!
