GlaDOS, the infamous AI villain from Valve’s Portal series, recently shared her thoughts on Croteam’s sci-fi puzzler The Talos Principle 2. Surprisingly, she doesn’t seem to be a fan of a future dominated by machines.
In a promotional video for the critically acclaimed sequel to the sci-fi puzzle game, GlaDOS is enlisted to experience testing from a different point of view.
GlaDOS, known for her disdainful put-downs, acid-laced sarcasm, and obsession with testing, might be expected to enjoy The Talos Principle 2. However, her reaction suggests bitterness instead.
The Talos Principle originally launched on PC before arriving on PS4 in 2015. Developed by the makers of Serious Sam and published by Devolver Digital, it quickly gained a reputation as an outstanding puzzle game.
The recently released sequel has garnered excellent reviews, with a Metacritic score of 87 (PC version). This thought-provoking first-person puzzle experience expands on the philosophical themes and stunning environments of its predecessor, presenting increasingly mind-bending challenges.
Set in a world where biological humanity is extinct but human culture survives through a city of robots, the game thrusts players into a mind-bending adventure centered around a mysterious megastructure with immense power. With each revelation, players are compelled to ponder the nature of the universe, the purpose of civilization, and grapple with choices that determine the course of events, including embracing reason, rejecting humanity, or confronting the mistakes of the past.
The Talos Principle 2 is available on both PS4 and PS5.
