Major news folks: The Talos Principle reached the #1 Top Sellers position on Steam yesterday!
Thank you guys for your support! The Talos Principle is still 66% off on Steam Monster Summer Sale, so hurry to get your copy.
Davor Hunski, Croteam CCO, held a lecture at this year’s World Festival of Animated Film.
Hunski spoke about history of video games, presented Croteam’ s work and gave a short overview of main steps in creating a great video game. He was joined by the representative of newly founded Croatian Game Developers Association (CGDA), Ante Vrdelja and founder of the first educational game center Machina, Lovro Nola. They all agreed that it takes hard work and a lot of effort to create a successful video game but with talented people and a bit of patience everything is possible. And it is worth it!
This was the third year now that Animafest presented us with the creative world of video games and is continuously working on their’s affirmation. Hopefully this collaboration will continue for more years to come.
We are proud to announce that The Talos Principle is now available on Google Play store on selected Nvidia powered devices – most notably new SHIELD Android TV console, SHIELD tablet and Google Nexus 9. The game is available as six episodes ($4.99 each) with an option to purchase the first episode for $4.99 and then the remaining five episodes at once with a $14.99 Season Pass.
New and intuitive touch controls really make Talos shine on touchpad devices – and if you are lucky to posses one of the above devices, you can be the judge!

We know it’s 1st of April, but you really are gonna laugh out of pure joy when we tell you that Talos Principle is 50% off (starting today till 6th of April)! But that’s not all…. we got some help from our longtime actor John J. Dick who thought Talos needed a change in attitude, so he recorded and replaced all Elohim’s quotes with his own, in an attempt to make game ‘even more serious’.
“I knew this was eventually bound to happen” said Sam “Serious” Stone when asked to comment on upcoming DLC. “It all started when they took assets from Egypt and reused them again in this new puzzler that delayed my fourth game in the series. But hell, I sound so good that all is forgiven.”
The new Serious pack also includes a new Serious player model for use in the game. The Talos Principle: Serious DLC is available on Steam for free until Tuesday, April 7th and then will be available for purchase for $2.99.
We are very excited to announce our upcoming DLC pack for The Talos Principle called Road to Gehenna. In this new story set in the world of The Talos Principle, you will take on the part of Uriel, Elohim’s messenger, as he explores a strange, hidden part of the simulation on a mission of mercy and redemption. You must free the souls of the damned – even if it requires a sacrifice.
The Talos Principle: Road to Gehenna will consist of 4 episodes, and will feature hard puzzles for experienced players who climbed the Tower and were left longing for more. Our writers, Tom Jubert and Jonas Kyratzes, have taken on the task of showing you an entirely different side of Elohim’s world. Your journey to Gehenna will not only introduce you to new characters, but to a whole new society with its own history and philosophy. We tried to press Jonas and Tom for more concrete details, but all we got were obscure philosophical statements about authenticity and the quantifying nature of the internet.
The Talos Principle: Road to Gehenna is coming to Steam this spring while The Talos Principle and the expansion pack will launch on PlayStation 4 and the Nvidia Shield platforms later this year.
Good news everybody! We’ll be attending this year’s GDC in San Francisco, where Talos Principle will be featured at IGF pavilion in Expo hall as one of the IGF finalists. As you probably know, we were nominated for 3 IGF awards – Seamus McNally Grand Prize, Excellence in Design and Audience Award – and we’d like to thank jury for this nice recognition of our hard work.
After GDC, we’ll head to PAX East in Boston, where you can find us at Devolver Digital’s booth as well as on Alienware stand. You can ask us questions, grab some t-shirts and goodies, play Talos, or just come to say hi – you are all welcome! And check this video below
See you soon, and thanks for your support!

Thanks for joining our evergrowing Steam community, we now passed 81.000 members! Our way to say thanks is to announce surprise game that we will be giving to some of the lucky members.
That is one old school shooter done properly on so many levels. And no game executed first person melee combat as good as Shadow Warrior did with mythical katana. Just wielding it through opposing flesh makes this game worth playing. But there is so much more, humor, upgradeable weapons and unmistakeable old school gameplay. Just try it out!

To make this deal sweeter, we will give you 200 keys for various Serious Sam games! It’s a heaven for old school shooter fans!

Finished The Talos Principle, and I award this piece of fleeting entertainment five points out of five. Also it changed me.
