Here’s an odd fusion. Portal is being combined with the Bridge Constructor sequence to create a spin-off recreation about making fragile bridges that transport forklifts from one facet of the Aperture Science facility to the opposite. In Bridge Constructor Portal we’ll see GLaDOS, the robotic marm of the passive aggressive puzzler, return to torment the participant with what I presume will probably be a characteristically snide voiceover, offered by Ellen McLain. Here’s a quick teaser.
The concept of Bridge Constructor is a well-recognized one – you place struts and platforms and ask physics to not reject your bridge as you ship over just a few vehicles. Previous video games within the sequence have included one set within the Medieval period and one targeted on stunts however that is the primary that works with one other well-known sequence.
It seems such as you’ll be utilizing the portals and bouncy goo of Aperture in addition to beams and girders to get round obstacles within the testing grounds. Some screenshots present a forklift bouncing round on its approach to the exit of a stage.
It makes me surprise: what different Portal spin-offs could be enjoyable? There’s already been Portal in LEGO Dimensions. Portal Space Program? Portal Gear Solid? Portals, Please?
We haven’t actually lined too many bridge-building video games right here at RPS. I used to be happy with World of Goo, certainly one of our best puzzle games ever made. But I do respect the madcap creations of some gap-crossing engineers, like these silly “bridges” by a Poly Bridge participant.
If you’re seeking to get bridgin’ for the sake of science, Bridge Constructor Portal is out December 20.
