The Talos Principle II pays tribute to cats in new trailer

From Press Release:

The Talos Principle II, Devolver Digital and developer Croteam’s critically acclaimed follow-up to the philosophical puzzle series’ 2 million+ selling debut released in 2014, has enthralled critics and fans alike through its beautiful environments, captivating story, intriguing mystery and satisfying puzzles – but the game’s adorable cats have stolen the show.

From the kitties prowling the streets of New Jerusalem, to the dearly departed feline friends memorialized in Milton’s Rest, The Talos Principle II is steeped in cat. That’s the inspiration for this new trailer focusing on the furriest members of the game’s cast. It seems humanity’s love of cats will endure long after we’ve abandoned our fleshly bodies:

But why do Croteam love cats so much? “They’re not like dogs,” say The Talos Principle II writers Jonas and Verena Kyratzes. “They don’t adore us automatically and unquestioningly, regardless of how we treat them. Cats are, in many ways, a mystery to us.”

“As Alexandra Drennan, leader of the Talos Project says, humans have an innate need to unravel mysteries. Maybe we love cats so much, because they’re the one mystery we’ve been unable to solve.”

The Talos Principle II is available now on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. Jack into for more information.
