Cake Not Included
The Portal series will undoubtedly go down as one of the most innovative and enjoyable puzzle games of all time. Not only could we leap through gaps in reality in order to overcome impossible obstacles and outmaneuver turrets, we also got to interact with one of gaming’s greatest villains; GLaDOS. It’s fair to say that even after so many years, her wit and cruelty are as sharp as ever.
Which is probably one of the reasons we are all eager to see her make a grand return, even if its in a game that isn’t exactly Portal 3.
According to an article on Gamespot –
A new Portal game has been announced, though it’s a little different to previous titles in the series. It’s called Bridge Constructor Portal, and it’s a crossover between Valve’s puzzle franchise and, you guessed it, Bridge Constructor.
As in the mainline Bridge Constructor series, the game tasks you with getting a truck from one side of the screen to the other, except this time you achieve that by placing portals in the right locations to warp your vehicle to the exit. It’s coming to PC and mobile on December 20, with “console versions” following in “early 2018.”
This isn’t the first strange Portal crossover: Rocket League received Portal-themed DLC in 2015 and Valve’s series also made an appearance in Lego Dimensions (including one Easter egg never seen in the main Portal games). Outside of those cameos, the last full Portal title, Portal 2, launched in 2011. A Portal movie is also in development from Star Wars: The Force Awakens director JJ Abrams, though there has been no update on that since September 2016, when Abrams said he hoped the film would be fully revealed soon.
We’re always happy to see more of GLaDOS and her infamous sass, we’re just hoping that this fusion of gameplay styles manages to live up to the name!
