Portal to make a triumphant return as a Bridge Constructor spin-off

Instead, the guys at Headup Games and Valve have come up with a great solution: Basically injecting a heaping helping of GLaDOS into Bridge Constructor [$1.99 / Free].

If you had to guess what franchise Portal would most likely cross over with, it wouldn't be Bridge Constructor. Well, it's a physics puzzler much like the previous Bridge Constructors. 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. We were expecting to hear something about this on Thursday night (late Friday here in the UK) during the Game Awards. While this may not be the Portal sequel fans were hoping for, if Valve isn't going to make use of its game series' it is reassuring to see at least someone is. I honestly couldn't tell you. For console players, the game will arrive early next year on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo Switch. You solve puzzles via clever placement of these portals and jumping (or walking) through one to come out the other. The game will jump to consoles sometime in 2018. Success will require them to not just act cooperatively, but to think cooperatively.

Anyway, Bridge Constructor Portal will be released on December 20th on mobile devices, as well as Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.
