It’s been more than six years since the sequel to mind-bending puzzle adventure Portal launched, but the series is finally back… sort of. Today, indie studio Headup Games announced a surprise standalone spinoff of its Bridge Constructor series, which will take place in the Portal universe. The original Bridge Constructor first launched back in 2013, and it tasks players with, well, designing bridges. The new spinoff will take that core concept in a slightly different direction.

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,” the studio explains. It’s not the first time Aperture Labs has invaded another game — there’s also a digital Portal-themed pinball title — but it might be the most clever.

If you’re excited about the idea of hanging out with GLaDOS again, you’ll be able to do so very soon: Bridge Constructor Portal is coming to PC, iOS, and Android on December 20th, with a console version slated for early next year.
