"I was simply flabbergasted at the complexity and simplicity they present at the same time." - 9/10 – The Indie Game Magazine

"Although rage-inducing difficulty spikes exist, The Bridge generally offers a middle path that should appeal both to newcomers and to expert puzzle solvers." - Gamespot.com


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.


Key Features:

  • 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.

Great artistic puzzle game but nothing more

bobbyturtle27 | June 12, 2015 | See all bobbyturtle27's reviews »

First and foremost, if you love a good puzzle, this game will make you think in ways that you probably haven't had to before for any other puzzle, and this will provide entertainment for at least a few good hours. In addition to this, the art, inspired by M.C. Escher, was interesting and worthy of appreciation. However, if you want some interesting story to go along with it or some ultimate end goal, you'll have a hard time finding it here.

Enjoyable Braid-like game

Castro0001 | June 9, 2015 | See all Castro0001's reviews »

This melancholic puzzle game draws influence from M. C. Escher art and utilizes an interesting rotating camera combine with the rewind mechanic similar to Braid. The levels get harder and can be frustrating for some players, but the final product, it's very satisfying for its price.

Interesting style in another indie puzzle game.

Furrek | Jan. 9, 2015 | See all Furrek's reviews »

I would fall in love with this game only if I wouldn't play MANY like these before. The Bridge have a very nice level design and great graphics style. I will sure remember this game for long only because of that. What's more? Easy controls, hard and harder puzzles. Sadly, many of indie games are like that. I played many of them so maybe "another indie puzzle game with interesting style and some story" are not making big impression on me. That doesn't mean this game isn't worth buying or playing. Wrong. It is, but I wouldn't consider this as something you must play. If you are fan of indie puzzle games get it.

Crossing the laws of gravity with geometric illusion

IllestAlexander | Nov. 17, 2014 | See all IllestAlexander's reviews »

The Bridge is a well-written puzzle game, which sometimes lacks a little diversity. For a homogeneous and gray (although beautiful!) graphic design and the slow pace of the levels seem to be from time to time “similar”. The game could also be a bit longer, although its passage takes a good few hours (I have a feeling that most of them rather applies to the last levels of the other world). Due to the increasing level of difficulty of puzzles, a very helpful solution is the 6-stage hint system. But The Bridge is still a strong position - is really charming and masterfully executed.

One of my favourite games on steam

samtahbou | Sept. 22, 2014 | See all samtahbou's reviews »

I don't know what it is about this game, but there's something very deeply and profoundly disturbing about it. It's like a terrifyingly beautiful nightmare. It is captivating. I love the art, the originality, and the atmosphere. But you still have this feeling of something being off. The game sucks you in and leaves you wondering what will happen to you once you've been taken. It really is just like those dreams where everything is perfectly fine, except for an uneasy feeling, you don't know what is giving you that feeling, maybe it's those boots that are laying on their side, or the absence of lint on your clothes, you don't know, but you can tell something is wrong. If you are expecting a monster or someone with a chainsaw popping up like it's a B horror flick, you won't find that here. But you will remain uneasy throughout. I recommend this game 100%, and I'm giving it a 9/10. The experience you get from playing this game is unlike any other I've played in the past. It's very unique, it has elements I've seen in other games, rotating the map, manipulating gravity, but the ingenuity with which it was applied is unparalleled. But be warned, this game will haunt you like few other games have.
