Day 3 after release of the Public Test – Top 10 comments mentioning ‘that other game’

Seems that a certain game is serving as a comparison to The Talos Principle, and we say this in a good way! It’s an honor being compared to such great title, and we hope to bring you same amount of fun you had when you played Portal for the first time. We bring you latest top 10 comments inspired by one of Valve’s best games:

“AMAZING GAME!! unique gameplay and puzzles reminded me of playing Portal”

“Nice puzzler ala Portal”

“Remember Portal? Two of them are enough to mess with your mind; remember those cubes, lasers, aerial faith plates, bridges? This game is just like those cubes, lasers, plates, and bridges; even without Portals; still messes with your mind. Never knew Portal minus Portals, is not equal to nothing?”

“For Portal, Antichamber, Stanley Parable, fans”

“At first the puzzle elements seem very Portal-esque (without the Portals of course), but it ends up being very original”

“It looks to me that this is going to be the new Portal, but more strange”

“The mystic stuff is more interesting to me than the puzzles.Yes puzzles were good but combining with that curiosity element, game becomes much better than Portal to me”

“Really great & interesting post-Portal First Person Puzzler, gorgeous graphics, great setting, loved every minute of it”

“I really do like this, it almost reminds me of Portal but it’s unique and fun”

“All I got to say is this is the next Portal quality puzzle game”

 

In case you are still wondering should you try the Public Test for yourself, ask yourself – did I love Portal? 😉

As of this moment, there are 526 threads regarding The Talos Principle Public Test on Steam community forums. Check for yourselves

Why do we mention that?

We’ve received some inquires from people wondering if all is legit. Seeing that SS3: BFE launched 3 years ago managed to open 269 threads so far, one could really be suspicious regarding Public Test and buzz it’s been generating for the past few days. Some of you compared this kind of activity to legendary Serious Sam HD: TFE trailer that managed to break down one famous trailer website when it was released in summer 2009, by quickly reaching more than 200,000 views in several hours, causing site servers malfunction and shutdown, which eventually resulted in trailer view counters being reset to zero upon relaunch…

Rest assured, all is legit here.

The best comparison would actually be initial Serious Sam: TFE Public Test which we released in the summer of 2000, which had quite a similar reception at first – fantastic comments and user raving about it all over the internet – all leading towards the Gamespot’s Game of the Year 2001 award for the full game.

Now, 14 years later, we are witnessing something similar with The Talos Principle Public Test. And we want to thank you all for being here with us at this moment.

Day 2 after release of the Public Test – Top 10 comments from YOU!

We continue with our top 10 comments from players who had a chance to play our Public Test on Steam

“An amazing puzzle game with what seems to be a really deep back-story”

“The puzzles are clever and rewarding – I just wish that the Public Test was longer :)”

“This public test left me wanting more. A lot more.”

“This is like a fusion of Portal and Riven, the scenery and music where beautiful, and the puzzles where a challenge, yet fun to solve.”

“I just wanted to try that ‘demo’ because of the beautiful screenshots… 1 hour later I had finished the 4 puzzles and pre-purchased the game (something I almost never do).”

“THIS GAME IS AMAZING! At first I thought it was gonna be another early access game but I was very wrong. The puzzles are satisfying and it looks beautiful. I can’t wait to see more!”

“Great game in every way. A quality experience, just what I expected from Croteam and the Serious Engine. Will pre order this game for sure.”

“The game is very awesome with very good soundtracks. Also the story got me very intrigued.”

“Fun and entertaining, got my brain moving. I would recommend! Cannot wait for the full version!”

“Fantastic game So far. Requires a sharp mind and a watchful eye.”

 

And obligatory honorable mentions – this time only one:

“yes”
