Does Bridge It only run on NVIDIA video cards?
No! The newest version (1.2) of Bridge It will now run on any type of video card!
What role did NVIDIA, Auran and Chronic Logic each play in the development of Bridge It?
Bridge It is the brainchild of Chronic Logic. Bridge It's design is based on Chronic Logic's game Bridge Construction Set. Auran's artists and programmers, armed with the Auran Jet software engine, consulted with Chronic Logic to transform the original Bridge Construction Set into a new gaming experience. NVIDIA joined these two companies together and provided its 3D graphics expertise, as well as moral support, and turned Bridge It into one of the most compelling 3D games on the market today.
How is Bridge It different from Bridge Construction Set?
Bridge It is a much more graphic-intense version of BCS. While the gameplay in Bridge It and BCS is similar, the intended audiences for the two games are slightly different. Bridge It was designed with casual gamers in mind and is designed for gamers of all skill levels. BCS is slightly more flexible and challenging and is geared towards the more experienced gamer. Hence, the change of name of BCS to Bridge It (and not BCS 2). See below for more information.
Will Bridge It be available for OSX and Linux?
Unfortunately Bridge It is based on a graphics engine that is Windows only. It is not possible for us to create a linux or OSX version of Bridge It. However our future games will support Linux and OSX.
