We have more exciting news for you – now that the release date is set, and you can preorder our game, we’d like you to personally test Talos and see what’s all the fuss about. Our public test will be released on Nov 6th and is meant to serve as additional stress and compatibility testing before The Talos Principle launches later this year. Watch this space for updates.
Meet Bot. Really, we call him Bot. Nothing too innovative here, just – Bot. As simple as that.
Bot works very hard. When other Croteamers go to sleep, Bot is still in the office, making sure game runs smoothly and that it can be finished. Bot is also first one to notice if we introduced any bugs to our latest build. He will not hesitate to point to us our mistakes. He’ll even write it down directly into our bug reporting software. And since he is very professional, if he thinks problem requires special attention, he’ll even attach a screenshot!
Since his work is truly remarkable, we asked him if he wants a raise but he told us he’s fine. His biggest reward, in his words, is seeing The Talos Principle running smoothly and glitch-free!
