Introspective gamers across multiple planes of reality can learn what it means to be human today as the sophisticated intellectuals at Croteam and poetic loners at Devolver Digital announce that the metaphysical parable, The Talos Principle, is available today on Steam for $39.99 (http://store.steampowered.
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 humanitys 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.
Sigils of Elohim is now available across all platforms for free on Steam at http://store.steampowered.com/
“The honest truth is that we ran out of budget for digital ammo in Serious Sam 4 so weve got to fill our coffers with sales from The Talos Principle before we can all proceed with the shooty shooty bang bang game,” said Fork Parker, CFO of Devolver Digital.
