About The Talos Principle

About this game

Developed by Croteam and published by Developer Digital and Croteam.

In The Talos Principle, you'll wake up to a clashing world: around you, there are ancient ruins and advanced technology. Your creator has tasked you with solving a series of increasingly complex and challenging puzzles, and you have two options: you either have faith in the process or you question — who are you and what is your purpose?

A True Challenge

In The Talos Principle, you'll have a whopping 120 challenging puzzles to tackle! All the while experiencing the stunning world around you, specked by bits of ancient ruins.

Use the Tech

You'll have some technology at your disposal — divert drones, manipulate laser beams, and even mess around with time to finish the puzzles... or find a way out of it all.

Uncover the Story

There is a deep story between what's left of the ruins and the technology — a story of what was once this civilisation! Uncover the clues, theorise, and find out what happened in these lands!

Your Choice

The Talos Principle is non-linear, meaning you are in control of where you go and what puzzles you choose to solve! Just remember: there's always somebody watching, and your choices will have consequences.

Steam Deck

The Talos Principle is playable on the Steam Deck, so go ahead and take your puzzle-solving with you everywhere!
