About The Talos Principle

http://store.steampowered.com/app/257510/
The Talos Principle is a first-person puzzle game in the tradition of philosophical science fiction. Made by Croteam, the creators of Serious Sam, 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?

Features:

  • 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.

I enjoyed this game for the puzzles, but purchased it with the purpose of expanding the plot and unlocking secrets in The Talos Principle. In the end, I enjoyed it for what it was, regardless. I recommend this for people who like puzzles, though I wish there was more content.

A nice simple puzzle game where you try to fit tetris shapes into a fixed area.

Easily worth a download if you like puzzle games.

Sigils of Elohim is a free mini-game that is a teaser for their The Talos Principle game. It worked, looked ok, sounded ok, and played ok. Challenging puzzle game.

Try it , maybe you might like it.

A good example of promotion for the upcoming main game. However, in my case, I came up with this mini title after I had bought The Talos Principle. Anyway, I like it. Tetromino is classic yet fun.

There are 96 levels/puzzles. It took me about 3 hours to complete all.

The difficulties of them are not steadily increasing: you will often be challenged with a big one at the beginning of a stage while the next one can be much simpler.

Note: You can toggle Window Mode with `alt+enter`. Although the window is still as large as full-screen, it is a littler easier for you to switch windows when you need to write down a reward code.

I am looking forwards to a game based on Tetromino to go much further.

Even if you don't consider getting The Talos Principle, it's a good braintwister. Held me occupied for the short times that I had nothing to do.

If you are playing the Talos Principle, this is good sigil practice, plus it can unlock some of the content in the Talos Principle earlier than otherwise possible.

★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆
The mini-game related somehow to Talos Principle. By solving some simple, tetris-based puzzles, you may get some stuff for the main game. I expected interesting IQ excercise. Unfortunately the gameplay is a bit boring. First of four levels may be finished in several minutes. And there is a chance you would not be interested in continuing with next ones.

A tetromino wonderland for puzzle enthusiasts at the best of prices, that of a mere download and the time it takes you to solve them, that is, if you can...

Sigils of Elohim is a puzzle game based on the upcoming "Talos Principle" game by Croteam which engages users to think to the best of their problem solving abilities.
You're given a number of shapes to work with and an overall spectrum to insert them in, just like a puzzle. In fact, Sigils of Elohim is basically like a physical puzzle that you place items in to make fit.

Is Sigils of Elohim better than a physical puzzle? The short answer; yes.
The long answer? Sigils of Elohim is all that you could ever want a puzzle to be. It's simple, easy, and at the same time challenging beyond belief. Best of all; It's free.

Sigils of Elohim takes an approach like a typical iOS/Android title (as it's also free to play for those platforms) and works well as a PC game as it engages simple fun into a very complex situation. Making all the pieces fit the puzzle box may look easy but you're taken for a wild ride once you've tried every possible solution that you feel your brain can handle, and still can't manage to solve it. The only limitation is your mind, and your imagination.

You can also use codes in this game to get promo items for "The Talos Principle" coming soon.

Go play this for 12 extra rewards in The Talos Principle. If you're a spot-on sigil master, it'll take you about an hour to solve all 96 puzzles. If not, then it could take days. Just remember, you're only paying for this game with your brain and not your cash. Contains those nice graphics, music and sounds from the original game.

If you don't like sigil (tetromino) puzzles in the first place and don't own The Talos Principle, then this game will be rather useless for you.

A FREE puzzle mini-game where you fit shapes together to form them to a rectangular grid. It's extremely calming to play and awards you with codes to unlock things in the game "The Talos Principle."
