It must be said, the puzzle genre has upped its game in recent times, with all manner of glorious looking brain teasing titles hitting our consoles to test us in ways we could never have imagined. And now there’s another beautiful looking puzzler available – The Talos Principle.
Available right now for Xbox One owners to download and enjoy, The Talos Principle from Devolver Digital places you into a world full of puzzles, tasking you to solve the ever complex objectives ahead. With you taking on the role of a sentient AI that has been dropped within a simulation of the human race’s greatest ruins, you’ll discover a game that doesn’t just want to test your brain power, but promises to throw you into a beautiful journey in the process.
Priced up at £39.99, The Talos Principle isn’t your super cheap puzzle experience, but it does seem like it will still be something well worth picking up. The Xbox Store will happily let you in on its secrets – provided you can find it within yourself to stump up that cash. For a limited time, there’s a hefty old discount in place too, with the game launching for £31.99.

The Talos Principle is a philosophical first-person puzzle game from Croteam, the creators of the Serious Sam series, and written by Tom Jubert (FTL, The Swapper) and Jonas Kyratzes (Infinite Ocean). Assume the role of a sentient artificial intelligence placed within a simulation of humanity’s greatest ruins and linked together through an arcane cathedral. Players are tasked with solving a series of increasingly complex puzzles woven into a metaphysical parable about intelligence and meaning in an inevitably doomed world.
