The Talos Principle

The Talos Principle is a first-person puzzle game in the tradition of philosophical science fiction. Made by Croteam and written by Tom Jubert (FTL, The Swapper) and Jonas Kyratzes (The Sea Will Claim Everything).

As if awakening from a deep sleep, you find yourself in a strange, contradictory world of ancient ruins and advanced technology. Tasked by your creator with solving a series of increasingly complex puzzles, you must decide whether to have faith or to ask the difficult questions: Who are you? What is your purpose? And what are you going to do about it?
Overcome more than 120 immersive puzzles in a stunning world.
Divert drones, manipulate laser beams and even replicate time to prove your worth - or to find a way out.
Explore a story about humanity, technology and civilization. Uncover clues, devise theories, and make up your own mind.
Choose your own path through the game's non-linear world, solving puzzles your way.
But remember: choices have consequences and somebody's always watching you.

    Sadly, to it's detriment this game was often compared to Valve's Portal series at release.
    Both are first person puzzle games, but that's about where it stops.

    Thankfully most people have now spent enough time with it, and thus come to their senses, and have seen the game for what it is - an amazing game in it's own right.

    With the recent advancement of AI, like ChatGPT, the game's philosophical approach means it's more than ever the perfect time to get into it.

    Don't forget the game does support Steam Workshop, if you want additional maps and campaigns to play through you do have additional content basically for free.

    For everyone else that's already a fan, don't forget Talos Principle 2 is coming! 🚂

    I find it somewhat similar to 'The Witness' with an overarching story/mystery that underlies everything and then lots of puzzles on top.

    However, the basic mechanics of the puzzles I thought were more involving in Talos. Clever though all the ways of moving a dot around a grid to solve a puzzle were in The Witness, I got pretty tired of that as the game progressed. The Talos Principle's interactive use of placing/using various objects in the 3D world and occasional use of physics was just more interesting and engaging for me.

    This, unlike too many 'puzzle' games, is very good. Loads of puzzles, and secrets, and secret levels of puzzles. Often lots of solutions to each puzzle, including the always fun "cheese" solutions. And some of the puzzles are actually quite ingenious.

    Freeform 'physics' is often used - too rare in PC games after Ngreedia ruined the concept of gaming physics in AAA games with the crippled PhysX gameworks nonsense.

    This was my surprise hit of the last generation on console. I went into a puzzle game and came out with a love of the story and the abundance of Easter eggs the developers hid (quite deeply in some instances) in the game.

    Can not wait for the sequel later this year.

    Just an FYI for anyone else like me that can't play first person games because of nausea this game CAN be played in third person.

    Fantastic game with loads of depth and secrets and lots of content which varies and develops nicely as you progress, so not just the same stuff rehashed all the time. (If you have a headset then there is a VR version, purchased seperately).

    An absolute steal at this price, will keep you going for weeks.
