First Look: The Talos Principle

By on

Remember Serious Sam? If you have played that game, then you might be familiar with Croteam, the developers of the classic series. Well, they?re back with a brand new game. But?this is not any typical game you will see out there. In a post on the PlayStation blog, one of the writers from Croteam, Tom Jubert, released a few screenshots and a brief overview of what players can expect of their upcoming game The Talos Principle.

Jubert categorized the game as a first-person philosophical puzzler. Have we heard anything of that sort before? I believe not. He describes the game as atmospheric and a bit ?sci-fi.? We can expect the game to be packed with secrets and mysteries so if you?re up for a challenge, then this game might be of interest to you.

Croteam has apparently been working lately on The Talos Principle as Jubert says that they are busy ?finishing the game.? The game was first introduced last month during Sony?s PlayStation E3 press conference.

In the game, you take the role of a robot in a ?digital recreation? of the ancient world. You explore a world full of puzzles and mysteries ?while you are being guided by a mysterious voice up in the sky.

?We hope there?s loads here to dig into and piece together if you?re so minded, but equally if you?re just here for the puzzles it won?t get in your way,? Jubert said.

The game was conceptualized from the experimental puzzle mechanics that were being developed for Serious Sam 4. The team started experimenting until they decided to make a game out of it. The game is also said to be running using the latest Serious engine.

If you?re looking for something different and want to challenge your wits, then this is definitely something you must look into.

They also released a short teaser trailer of the game:

The game is expected to be released later this year on the PlayStation 4.
