Today we are looking at a famous title from 2014 – The Talos Principle and its adaptation into Virtual Reality. The Talos Principle is a first-person, narrative-driven puzzle. Developed by the well-known Croteam, the virtual reality version of the game supports both HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
About the Game
The Talos Principle is a puzzle game that’s centered around the area of philosophical science fiction. You awaken from a deep sleep and you find yourself in a weird environment filled with ancient ruins and advanced technology. After you get to your senses, you are then instructed by an entity to solve a series of complex puzzles. Each puzzle increasing its complexity as you progress. As you solve those puzzles and you continue along your journey you start to notice some strange things about you and everything around you. You start to doubt your existence and questions arise. Should you seek for the answers? Or should you just have faith and keep going? The Talos Principle is going to make you question even your own existence in real life.
Gameplay and Features
In the Talos Principle VR you solve puzzles by using your hands. You can divert drones, manipulate laser beams or even replicate time. How would replicating time help you? You’ll find out when you play. The world of Talos is very immersive and stunning, with beautiful graphics and captivating story. It will really provide a good level of immersion and satisfaction when playing it. The story is about humanity, unknown and unexplored technology and civilization. You will gather clues and conclude theories that will help you shape your mind and choose your own path. You can explore the curious world of Talos with full locomotion support. The game has included teleport, instant teleport, blink teleport and classic full locomotion. For whatever you prefer. And it also has full roomscale support.
The Talos Principle VR is a much more immersive and interactive version of The Talos Principle. It will have you solve complex and advanced puzzles, gather clues and devise theories about your existence and the path you are on. If you really want to immerse yourself in an other-worldly environment and experience a mind-blowing adventure. I definitely recommend getting the game on Steam.
