Mashing up two gaming franchises to create a new game is something that we really ought to see more of. It doesn’t happen that often but when it does the results can be surprisingly good, just look at the collaboration between Mario and the Raving Rabbids from last year. Now we have an indie game joining up with one of Valve’s beloved franchises. Bridge Constructor Portal adds Portal‘s game mechanics to the puzzles of the Bridge Constructor series. If either of these series interest you then you will want to check out the game when it launches on 28th February.
Here’s the official description as well as the trailer for the game –
Enter the Aperture Science Enrichment Center and experience Bridge Constructor Portal – the unique merging of the classic Portal™ and Bridge Constructor™ games. As a new employee in the Aperture Science test lab, it’s your job to build bridges, ramps, slides, and other constructions in 60 test chambers and get the Bendies safely across the finish line in their vehicles. Make use of the many Portal gadgets, like portals, propulsion gel, repulsion gel, aerial faith plates, cubes, and more to bypass the sentry turrets, acid pools and laser barriers, solve switch puzzles, and make it through the test chambers unscathed. Let Ellen McLain, the original voice of GLaDOS, guide you through the tutorial, and learn all the tips and tricks that make a true Aperture Science employee. The bridge is a lie!
