For a while now, there have been rumours that there would be a new Portal game announced at the upcoming Game Awards. We usually see one or two high-profile reveals, and there’s been a suggestion that one of those games would finally be a third game in a Valve franchise

I hope you haven’t been too excited. The game’s trailer seems to have leaked, and while there is a new Portal something coming, it’s not Portal 3. It appears to be a new, Portal-themed version of Bridge constructor.

“Hello and welcome back to the Aperture Science computer-aided enrichment center.”

We welcome all lucky applicants to Bridge Constructor Portal with our new vehicle-based test chambers, Quantum Tunnels and patented Aperture technology!

For the last year we’ve been secretly working in our underground labs on the next iteration of the million-selling Bridge Constructor series. This new stand-alone title will release on PC, MacOS, Linux, mobile devices, and console, and fully embraces the Portal license, one of the most beloved video game franchises of the last decade.

Bridge Constructor Portal will blend the laws of structural engineering and technology straight from Aperture Laboratories into an exciting new game experience, all under the demanding gaze of GLaDOS.”

Yikes.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
