Valve has announced a Portal Bridge Constructor spin off

In it, you'll solve puzzles that involve trucks crossing abyssal chasms, but unlike in other bridge building games such as the recently popular Poly Bridge, you'll be able to use portal technology.

A collaboration between Valve and Bridge Constructor developer Clockstone Software, Bridge Constructor Portal is a standalone game coming to Windows, MacOS, Linux, and mobile on December 20. I think you could make a strong argument that Portal is the ideal video game, and the world-building that was done in Portal 2 has left me absolutely starving for anything new involving Aperture Science.

It may not be the Portal sequel that fans have been hoping for since Portal 2's 2011 release, but it's certainly an unexpected mash-up. I honestly couldn't tell you.


It is also in the works for PlayStation 4, Switch and Xbox One. In it, players construct spans and supports to allow traffic to flow from one part of the level to another. Even GLaDOS returns to narrate the experience and boss you around. The console version is slated for release in early 2018. Additionally, GLaDOS singing Jonathan Coulton's "Still Alive" is. Success will require them to not just act cooperatively, but to think cooperatively.

If the game piques your interest, Headup Games says that Bridge Constructor Portal will launch on December 20 for PC, Mac, Linux, and mobile devices.
