The bridge simulator you didn't know you needed
Poly Bridge is a construction puzzle game available for play on PCs.
When most people think of video games, they think of either violent shooters or games where portly plumbers jump on turtles. The real world of video games, however, is quite a bit weirder. One great example of exactly how weird games can be is Poly Bridge. The concept of the game is simple - build a bridge (using a limited amount of tools) to allow a vehicle to cross a gap. There's nothing more to the game, yet it's both insanely popular and has a rabid fan base. There aren't any explosions to be found here, just challenges to one's imagination and problem-solving abilities.
Much like the bridges in the game, Poly Bridge does fall apart if you think too much about it. There's not a lot to do beyond build bridges and solve a few different puzzles. There's a lot of room for improvement, but there's no doubt that this will be a game that will be improved upon in the future. It's very easy to look at this game and see the beginnings of a very odd franchise.
If you want to build bridges, this is probably the game for you. If you want to solve puzzles, this is still a great option. Don't expect a stereotypical video game experience and you won't be disappointed. This game goes a long way in showing that games can be far weirder and far more inventive than the average person expects. If you need a break from zombie hordes and speedy rodents, Poly Bridge is the game for you.
