Bridge Constructor Portal is exactly what it sounds like

Bridge Constructor Portal is exactly what it sounds like

Valve, makers of Portal and Half-Life, today announced a partnership with Headsup Games and Clockstone Software to develop "Bridge Constructor Portal". It doesn't look like a canon expansion of Portal lore, but it still retains fan-favorite hallmarks like talking turrets and GLaDOS mocking your every failure, so it should feel authentic despite the extreme changeup in genre. This new stand-alone title will fully embraces the Portal license, one of the most beloved video game franchises of the last decade. This is the first time someone else has gotten to make a full-scale standalone game for multiple platforms set in the Portal universe. The entire gimmick of the Portal games revolves around using a portal gun which can shoot out a blue portal and an orange portal.

As evident by its title, the game is an official mash-up of Portal and the physics-based title, Bridge Constructor. You solve puzzles via clever placement of these portals and jumping (or walking) through one to come out the other.

There's no gameplay footage, but the teaser confirms the return of GLaDOS voice actress Ellen McLain.
