Day 2 Recap – Croteam at GAMESCOM 2014

Day 2 hello from GAMESCOM 2014!

Overwhelming. That’s basically the only word that describes response to the Talos Principle demo we’ve been showcasing for the past two days!

It’s been awesome in Cologne so far and we are loving every minute of it! Both of our narrative designers, Tom Jubert and Jonas Kyratzes did a hell of a job at Devolver Digital stand in hall 4.1 converting lots of newcomers to instant Talos fans, mostly among the media and press.

Meanwhile, our MEGABOOTH stand was under occupation, with people lining up to play Talos for the first time. We secured 2 desktop stations, 1 XMG laptop and 2 new nVidia Shield tablets for you guys, but it’s simply not enough, so we’ll bring more tomorrow, as we want to give everyone chance to play. Visit us tomorrow and prepare to be blown away by Talos!

Day 1 Recap – Croteam at GAMESCOM 2014

Day 1 hello from GAMESCOM 2014!

The Gamescom was officially opened this morning for public, which made our Cologne team very very happy, as we could finally put Talos in front of people we make games for! And boy was that fun! As part of the Indie MEGABOOTH (located in hall 10.1) Croteam was blessed with an opportunity to listen first-hand what you boys and girls have to say about Talos’ gameplay and story. It was really great watching people playing our game and discovering how all these mechanics work, while experiencing glimpses of story that justify the adjective “philosophical” in our tagline. And you people did good – many of you were so persistent and didn’t want to give up, and it was a pure pleasure for us watching you solve final puzzle and experiencing that moment of epiphany, knowing you proved yourself worthy of the challenge!

Judging by the previews and comments popping out each day, we are on the right track as many of you find this change of pace very intriguing and positive. This is also a big step for Croteam, so we’d like to thank you in advance for your support!

And don’t worry, there will be Serious Sam 4 after Talos and it will rock!

More Games From Croteam

Hello Croteam fans from Mr. Pinky!

I am finally returning back home from my well deserved vacation.

Let me tell you, first eight years I was travelling around the world, meeting interesting people and generally enjoying myself. It passed like it was yesterday. In that time Croteam was kind enough not to legally pursue my persona and I thank their CEO for that. After that, for the next two years or so, I took extra time to relax from this vacation. So, here I am, relaxed and ready again to lead the spy team to get you that juicy news on Croteam.

I am still fighting with jet lag, so I have check out now, but let me just first give you a quick tease (from still-in-construction web page) that Croteam is working on a therapy action simulation game called Idiot Simulator!

With Idiot Simulator it seems Croteam is jumping to all the big noise that Goat, Bear and other (are there any?) Simulator games are currently making. Btw, Goat Simulator is to be released tomorrow on Steamand Bear is on Kickstarter, so it’s worth checking both.

Not sure how I feel about that right now. I like the word “therapy” in the description though, I am always for that. But, not sure if I would ever want to start that game, as then I have a feeling I just wouldn’t be able to stop playing. Yes, I admit, I do have a lot of people on THE (idiot) list, so I am probably not the best one to comment.

Anyhow, more inside info on Idiot Simulator tomorrow in my Serious Tuesday update.
