The Talos Principle 2 confirmed from Croteam

Still no word on Serious Sam 4, however.

The Talos Principle from Croteam was somewhat of a surprise hit, considering that the puzzler was a bit of a departure for the Serious Sam developer. So it makes sense that the game will be getting a sequel in the near future.

Croteam CTO Alen Ladavac revealed the team's intentions (via Damir Durovic) today at the Nordic Games Summit. No other details were released, but when Croteam's publisher Devolver Digital was asked about the proposed sequel, its response was a tongue-in-cheek "Ask them where Serious Sam 4 is."

The original game was released in late 2014, then got an expansion and a Serious Sam voice pack as DLC. Ladavac also talked to us about bringing the game to Android last year.

      That's good, people really love that first one. Will be interesting to see how they approach the sequel.

      The Talos Principle is a fine puzzle game, although I really burned out on it towards the end, instead of forcing myself to finish it I should have put it down. This resulted in passing over the expansion pack, and if the sequel ends up being a lot more of the same I'm not sure I'll end up playing it. Still looking forward to seeing what it's all about.

        I hope they vary it up more; which is risky. Go too far and it might not feel like it's the same game (sequel), but too much of the same and it'll feel more like a descent expansion.

        I had the same burn out and just resorted to looking up a walkthrough in a few sections which I regret.

        Similarly I burned out on the expansion pretty quickly because it's a lot more of the same. I hope the sequel mixes it up a fair amount, especially in the setting/storytelling.

      Pretty good puzzler. I haven't finished, but it's on my list of must-finish. Not every Steam sale purchase ends up on the list. In fact, most don't.

      I'd love more of that game, assuming they changed up the puzzle mechanics.
      Story wise, I'm not sure you would have more puzzles of a similar type, and continue the story. Oh, you proved your independence and were let out of the simulation into the real world. ON NO, IT"S REALLY JUST ANOTHER SIMULATION WITH MORE PUZZLES! I don't think that would really work, unless the puzzles are disguised as real world tasks to rebuild (which I don't really see how it could work either).

        Yeah, building a sequel would prove difficult
