The Talos Principle - (Matt Cox)

talos principle

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time.>

What was the logical next step for the developers of dual machine gun toting, beheaded bomber slaying Serious Sam? A thoughtful, philosophical puzzler in the vein of Portal, of course.

In The Talos Principle [official site] you play as a robot, guided through the game by a disembodied voice calling itself Elohim. Imagine the Stanley Parable narrator but with more pompous severity and you ll have a good idea what you re in for. (more…)

Existential puzzle game The Talos Principle now has a VR edition, which you can slap on your face now. It contains the core game, rebuilt for VR, and also the four-part Road to Gehenna expansion. 

In The Talos Principle, you solve puzzles with lasers and blocks amid ancient Greek and Egyptian ruins and medieval castles while an omnipresent creator chats in your ear. Chris Thurston had plenty of good things to say about the original in his review

“The forgivingly low bar set by its initial puzzles belies the complexity of what follows, and the majority of chambers are flat-out excellent: a feat made more impressive by the sheer number of the things. You're looking at a running time of ten to fifteen hours to do absolutely everything, assuming that you don't smack up against the ceiling of your own acuity. The difficulty curve is expertly set. Once you've got your head around how a new tool works, many puzzles can be cracked with less than a minute's consideration.”

This new version has been build from the ground up for VR and comes with roomscale support, advanced VR controls, and different movement presets. So as well as being able to teleport in three different ways, the game supports full locomotion for those who don’t anticipate getting nauseous. 

If you own the original, The Talos Principle VR is 25% off on Steam, and for everyone else, it’s £29.99/$39.99. It's available for both Oculus Rift and Vive.

Another week, another release! That's just how we roll. :)

We are glad to let you know that The Talos Principle has finally the reality it was always supposed to be a part of,  as we have released the eagerly awaited virtual reality reimagining on Steam for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.

The Talos Principle VR is available with automatic 25% off for all existing owners of The Talos Principle. Along with the content available in the base game, the VR adaptation features the full Road to Gehenna expansion free of charge.

Redesigned from the ground up to provide virtual reality fans with the experience they have come to expect from Croteam, The Talos Principle VR introduces a fresh take to the contradictory world of ancient ruins and advanced technology. With roomscale support, four different movement presets and advanced VR controls, the game is perfectly suited for casual virtual reality gamers and enthusiasts alike.

"The VR reimagining truly is a homecoming moment for The Talos Principle. We have always felt this game was a perfect fit for virtual reality, and it turned out to be true. I can't wait for everyone to jump in and, hopefully, enjoy playing the game as much as we've enjoyed making it," said Croteam's TTPVR project lead and VR enthusiast Mario Kotlar.
