If philosophy, robots and brain teasers aren’t quite your favourite things on the planet, you might require some extra info on The Talos Principle. Currently sitting pretty at a 10/10 on Steam, Croteam has been lauded for its juggling of clever puzzles and an intriguingly metaphysical storyline. Here’s what the developers have had to say about the game:
The Talos Principle is a philosophical first-person puzzle game from Croteam, the creators of the legendary Serious Sam series, 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, disable turrets, 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.
Pretty cool, huh? If you want to know more about The Talos Principle you can swing by Croteam’s website. Send your pick for the greatest robot in all of gaming our way before it’s too late, and you’ll be in with the chance of nabbing for your very own free copy.
