Aperture Science is still alive with Bridge Constructor Portal

With Portal 2 writers Erik Wolpaw and Chet Faliszek exiting Valve this year, and Portal level designer Kim Swift having moved onto Amazon and now EA's Motive Studio, it's no surprise to see Valve depend on licensing deals to keep its franchises relevant.

Never mind Half-Life 3, there's nearly certainly never going to be a Portal 3.

Bridge Constructor, developed by Headup Games and published by ClockStone Software, has been around since 2013.

Northeast Investment Management Grows Position in NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA)

Bridge Constructor Portal, as the name suggests, combines gameplay from Bridge Constructor and Portal. My absolute dream would be for Valve to acknowledge this game as canon in the Portal universe and slips in some additional tidbits on Aperture Science.

As evident by its title, the game is an official mash-up of Portal and the physics-based title, Bridge Constructor. The games are also available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and you shouldn't have much trouble finding them used for around $10 a pop.

Bridge Constructor: Portal will be out on PC, Mac, Linux, and mobile on December 20.

When we try to think up likely spin-offs to franchises, a bridge construction game for Portal isn't one that comes to mind.

Portal and Portal 2 are celebrated classics, but after the release of the latter developer Valve steered away from game development, instead focusing on hardware like the HTC Vive virtual reality headset and its digital platform Steam. Console versions of the game will hit early next year.
