The Talos Principle

8: The Talos Principle

Developer: Croteam
Publisher: Devolver Digital

It’s probably fair to say that we weren’t expecting the creators of Serious Sam to bring out the best first person puzzle game since Portal. More known for going out of their way to create games that are dumb, this time they set out to make something exceptionally clever.

The contrived setting – you’re a robot attempting to complete a set of tasks in a broken down, overgrown outdoor facility, while attempting to discern what happened there, and indeed, what humanity is – works splendidly for presenting dozens of intriguing puzzles. Aiming beams of light, freezing floating enemy bots, removing forcefields, and negotiating impossible mazes, all contributes toward that important goal: collecting tetromino puzzle pieces.

Gather enough, and you can use them to solve a simple puzzle to open new skills and the next section of the game. But as you go, you’ll encounter computer terminals that will ask you peculiar questions, seemingly going through some sort of existential crisis, exploring notions of what it is to be alive, to be real. This stupendous writing is the work of Tom Jubert and Jonas Kyratzes, and it adds an astonishing amount to an already superb puzzle game.
