Indie Spotlight - The Talos Principle

Our weekly Indie Spotlight articles highlight one indie game that we feel is worth your attention. Every game listed has a planned console release for the Xbox One and/or PS4.

The Talos Principle

Developed by a small team located in Zagreb, Croatia, Croteam are most famously known for the successful Serious Sam franchise which began in 2001. In December of 2014, thirteen years later, The Talos Principle was born.

A philosophical first-person puzzle game written by Tom Jubert (FTL, The Swapper) and Jonas Kyratzes (The Sea Will Claim Everything), the game quickly garnered critical success. The Talos Principle features various styles of puzzles primarily focusing on object and environment manipulation in large, open areas.

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.

Road to Gehenna Expansion

The Road to Gehenna expansion, released July 2015, includes four new episodes that take players through some very "advanced and challenging" puzzles. Both of the original writers also make a return to expand upon the story of Elohim.
The Talos Principle: Road to Gehenna follows the narrative of Uriel, Elohim's messenger, as he explores a strange, hidden part of the simulation on a mission of mercy and redemption in an attempt to free the souls of the damned at all costs.

The Talos Principle is currently available on PC with a PS4 release scheduled for October 13th, 2015. For more information visit the official website. For updates on the game and release, follow @Croteam on Twitter.
