While it may appear that this game is always on some sort of sale, it’s not. It’s just that our marketing team (IT’S ME, THE GUY WHO’S TYPING THIS, HI!) has been kind of lazy when it comes to news updates.
There seems to be a lot of media interest for Croteam’s support of Vulkan API in existing and upcoming games, especially after this comment on a forum.
We asked Dean Sekulic, Croteam’s Senior Programmer, to confirm the story.
“Yes, it’s true. The Talos Principle will be our first game to support the Vulkan API. The game is already available on PC, PS4, OS X, Linux and even Android, so I thought – why not add Vulkan to Serious Engine? I mean, it was the easiest feature ever, it only took me five minutes or so to implement it. Here, take a look.”
After seeing the first screenshot we weren’t quite convinced that was the support Khronos Group is looking for. We confronted Dean about it and asked him if he read the official specifications at all?
“No. Of course not! But it won’t stop me from speaking about it at this years GDC official Vulkan panel. And if you disagree, I’ll be available for questions after my lecture.”
Dean was equally straightforward about the time frame for the upcoming patch that will add Vulkan functionality:
We were terrified to ask anything else. But YOU could try.

Well, better late than never…. The music from The Talos Principle is finally available for download at all major digital music outlets. It includes music from Road to Gehenna and contains no Elohim’s speech, so you can meditate to it, if you wish

We are celebrating Talos anniversary and we couldn’t be more proud of it. On December 11th one year ago The Talos Principle was released on Steam.
Thank you guys for supporting us, we really appreciate it.
According to unofficial sources, there were as many as 50.000 visitors at this year’s Reboot InfoGamer. Croteam was one of the 100 exhibitors at one of the biggest games shows in Europe, but for us it wasn’t about the record numbers or spectacular booths (although we did try to build a very pretty one). For us, it was about hanging out with fans.
It involved a lot of creativity, too. We had to come up with different answers to everybody’s favorite question: ‘When will you release Serious Sam 4?’ It’s just not polite to bark ‘When it’s done!’ for the thousandth time.
So we came up with this great trick and asked back – ‘Why don’t you tell us?’ or ‘Ask not what Sam can do for you, but whether you can do C++ for Sam’. We ended up hiring the ones whose answers we liked the most.
The officials at the Reboot InfoGamer released this recap video, insisting on this awful dubstep track for some reason. For maximum viewing pleasure we recommend muting the sound and watching the video with a chiptune-punk-folk track of your own choice.
