The Bridge Announced for Consoles

By Marc Hollinshead, 5 years ago
What was previously just available for download from Steam, has now been announced for Xbox 360 via the appearance of a new page on the official Xbox website. The Bridge is an intriguing puzzle game that will have even the most skillful of puzzle fans scratching their heads in confusion as they "attempt the absurd and solve the impossible."

The Bridge is a 2D logic puzzle game that forces the player to reevaluate their preconceptions of physics and perspective. It is Isaac Newton meets M. C. Escher. Manipulate gravity to redefine the ceiling as the floor while venturing through impossible architectures. Explore increasingly difficult worlds, each uniquely detailed and designed to leave the player with a pronounced sense of intellectual accomplishment. The Bridge exemplifies games as an art form, with beautifully hand-drawn art in the style of a black-and-white lithograph.
•48 thought-provoking puzzles, each unique from the rest, all requiring an innovative solution.
•Gravity manipulations, gravitational vortexes, parallel dimensions, and many more mind-bending concepts in a world where the laws of physics are not what they seem.
•M. C. Escher-esque worlds with impossible architecture set in the style of beautifully hand-drawn black-and-white lithographic art.
•An alternate version of the game unlocked after the main storyline has been completed, including challenging alternate versions of each of the 24 main puzzles, along with an alternate ending.
•A time-backtracking system to alleviate any fears of making a mistake.
Alongside these details, some screenshots of the game have cropped up so that we have that extra bit of insight of what we can expect.

Very intriguing indeed, am I right? We also have a trailer for the game, too. Aren't you lucky?

After all that, do you reckon The Bridge is for you? No official release date for XBLA has been fully confirmed yet, but we'll let you know once we find out!

To summarize Marc in two words, it would be "Christian Gamer." You will usually find him getting stuck into story heavy action-adventure games, RPG's and the odd quirky title when he isn't raving about Dark Souls and Mass Effect. Outside the world of gaming, Marc attends and helps out in his church on a regular basis and has a not-so thrilling job in a supermarket.
