It’s been in my library for years and I didn’t know much about it. Randomly started playing it a few days ago and I’ve been having a blast solving the puzzles. It’s been a while since a game has really made me want to finish it and see what is at the ending.

I’m at the end now working on the final (I think) puzzle.

(this is also my first ever lemmy post)

    Brilliant game, isn’t it? It’s one of my favourites.

    Unfortunately there is only one DLC for it, but it is worth it.

    The Talos Principle II is scheduled to be released this year, so you’re in luck.

      Awesome - I didn’t know about the sequel. I did everything in the first one and the DLC. Loved the puzzles, writing and the Easter eggs. And mostly just the vibe. It’s a hauntingly beautiful world.

      Best bit of the writing for me was the mash up misunderstandings of history. It reads like a language model had incomplete info and put several key historical events into the wrong order, and drew some nonsensical causal conclusions about them.

      Loved Talos. I’m usually a patient gamer but Talos 2 might be the first time I buy a game for full price in a decade. See how it reviews first though

        I’m a big fan of Croteam’s work (Serious Sam, Talos), but I still haven’t bought Serious Sam 4 (released Sept. 4, 2020). I just checked and it is still at €38.99 on Steam. I’m a patient man, I’ll wait. Maybe I’ll buy Talos II full price, but I doubt it. The savings I’ll make from waiting will go to (amongst other things) better hardware to run those games properly.
