A Paladin’s Screenshots: The Beauty of The Talos Principle. First Selection.
Here’s something for your Sunday.
Read my review on The Talos Principle here!
Been playing the Talos Principle pretty heavily for the past couple of months. It’s a longer puzzle game than I had expected, harder too. But I’ve been enjoying it quite a bit. What’s most surprising about it though is just how good it looks. Croteam clearly wants to show just how powerful the Serious Engine is and The Talos Principle shows it off very well. Here’s a selection of many screenshots I’ve taken. Technically, there are environmental spoilers but I’ll avoid showing how to solve puzzles or any story related content. Enjoy!
An endless land.
The Third World of Puzzles in a very Catholic Looking Church.
Random numbers I found on rocks. No idea what they are in reference to.
Good luck finding that friends. 😉
The laser puzzles get a bit tricky but are fun to look at.
I’d live in that castle. Maybe.
You wouldn’t believe what it took to get this shot.
Side shot of the Sphinx.
The Great Sphinx can be found.
One of the Heaven Gardens. More puzzles abound in them.
Rainbow. Nothing special about it, but it exists.
Pretty interesting looking church, can’t enter it though.
There had to be at least one blue screen of death in a game about computers.
There is inclement weather too.
Ok…that…may be creepily close to accurate for me.
The game doesn’t start out small. This is the first world room you enter into. It’s quite the looker.
Many of these stars were just difficult to obtain.
The Second World of puzzles to explore. Egyptian themed. Because Croteam.
Plenty of nods to Portal can be found in this game. But while it may have some inspirations from the game, the puzzles feel unique to Talos.
Thanks for taking time to look over my screenshots today. You can find more screenshots of games over here. Share this post around if you enjoyed looking these over, it’s appreciated.
