Day 1 after release of the Public Test – Top 10 comments from YOU!

Instead of sharing what press has to say about our freshly released Public Test, we decided to post collection of top ten quotes from you, true gamers, and show the world what players have to say about The Talos Principle!

“Like Portal? Or Antichamber, or The Swapper or other Puzzle-Games like those? If your answer is yes, then you must try this. Thank me later.”

“Wow, this game is surprisingly fun. Challenging puzzles, beautiful atmosphere, hidden stars, hidden door at the end. This test was a blast. Do yourself a favor and get it now, I had a great 2 hour experience.”

“This game could win Puzzle GOTY easily.”

“Not only does the story seem interesting, the game looks beautiful, sounds beautiful, the puzzles are are fun and most important of all the game runs great!”

“This was probably the most breathtaking game I have ever played. And it was just the demo. If your PC can run it, Play it. Now.”

“This is why I still have faith in the gaming industry. Definitely a must buy!”

“It involves castles and laser beams. BUY NOW! it also has a picture of an Android holding a kitten. SOLD.”

“PORTAL 3!”

“Great puzzle game! I loved being dropped into an open world where there is no tutorial and I just had to figure things out.”

“So far this game is extremely impressive and beautiful! I can see it being a big hit once full released.”

And here are three more honorable mentions!

“I never expected a game to be so clever on so many levels.”

“The public test is a good glimpse into what the entire game could hold.”

“Finally, a game I really look forward to seeing released. Philosophical questions plus awesome puzzles, and also collectables. Couldn’t ask for more.”

In case you are still wondering should you try the Public Test for yourself, we’ll take the liberty of repeating quote nr. 2 – Do yourself a favor and get it now!

 

The Talos Principle Public test announced

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.

Mr. Bot

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!

To find out more about our friend Bot, head over to VentureBeat interview

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!

If you are in Cologne, a reminder to visit hall 10.1 and check Talos in person!

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!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and see you at the show-floor tomorrow! 😉
If you are in Cologne, be sure to visit hall 10.1 and check Talos in person!
