Damjan Mravunac has taken to the PlayStation blog this month to provide more details about the award-winning philosophical puzzle game that will soon be launching on the PlayStation 4 in the form of the The Talos Principle Deluxe Edition.
Watch the video below to see what you can expect from the new Deluxe Edition game that will be available to purchase on the PlayStation 4 next month from October 13th, 2015.
Mravunac explains a little more about the Talos Principle and its development process.
Making a game is hard, and making a puzzle game might be harder because it requires finding a fine balance between challenging players on an increasing difficulty curve while always being fair with the logic and reasoning required to find the solutions.
At a certain point during the development process, we realized that we need to test gameplay on daily basis, as minor design changes could break carefully planned puzzle concepts very easily. We just couldn’t afford manpower for that purpose, since The Talos Principle was shaping out to be very, very long, so we had to think of something completely different. And what better way to test a game about sentient AI than with AI? Thus – The Bot was born. His purpose was to play through each new game build and solve all puzzles, reporting ones that couldn’t be solved (due to errors in mechanics, obstacles etc.).
