Portal's Getting a Bridge Construction Spin Off Later This Month

And, yes, Portal's evil AI GLaDOS is in Bridge Constructor Portal and back to delivering her/its signature acerbic but monotone observations of player-characters. I think you could make a strong argument that Portal is the flawless 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.

Backing up a bit, if you've never played a Portal game before, I implore you to fix that problem. The games are also available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and you shouldn't have much trouble finding them used for around $10 a pop.

Bridge Constructor Portal seems like a simple premise from the trailer: design bridges, interact with portals, and get trucks to the end of levels making use of momentum and trajectory. Additionally, GLaDOS singing Jonathan Coulton's "Still Alive" is. In Valve's games, players take the Aperture Science invention to survive a series of tests and then to escape into the world.

As the name implies, Bridge Constructor Portal is the next entry in the popular Bridge Constructor series, with Portal-inspired visuals and mechanics. This new stand-alone title will release on PC, MacOS, Linux, mobile devices, and console, and fully embraces the Portal license, one of the most beloved video game franchises of the last decade.

There's a new Portal game on the way, but it's not what anyone would have expected.

No firm release date has been announced.
