Devolver Digital and Croteam announced today the release of The Talos Principle. The game is available today on Steam for 35,99€ and in order to celebrate this launch, Devolver released the game’s launch trailer that can be viewed below.
Written by Tom Jubert (FTL, The Swapper) and Jonas Kyratzes (Infinite Ocean), The Talos Principle asks players to assume the role of a sentient being placed within a simulation of humanity’s greatest ruins and linked together through an arcane cathedral. Players are tasked with solving a series of increasingly complex puzzles woven into a philosophic allegory about intelligence and meaning in an inevitably doomed world.
A companion game for iOS, Android and PC, Sigils of Elohim, is also available. The free mini-game launched earlier this year and allows players to unlock items that will help them in The Talos Principle.
Fork Parker, CFO of Devolver Digital, said:
“The honest truth is that we ran out of budget for digital ammo in Serious Sam 4 so we’ve got to fill our coffers with sales from The Talos Principle before we can all proceed with the shooty shooty bang bang game.”
