Shortly after the release of the Orange Box, Gabe Newell was concerned that Valve was focusing too much time on releasing games, and not on experimenting/innovation. To combat this, he thought up the 'Directed Design Experiments'. In essence, Valve would shut down development on games and let the employees do whatever they want. Valve would turn into a creative playground for four months, with no stress or pressure from developing full games.

One of these experiments was titled F-STOP; A project that made Gabe Newell think "Fuck yeah!" after seeing it.
