I am a giant fan of Croteam’s 2014 puzzle game The Talos Precept, and so I feel the brand new Thoughts-Bending Masterpieces assortment at Humble Bundle is properly value some consideration. It contains The Talos Precept and a powerful assortment of different hit puzzle video games together with The Witness and Superliminal for simply $10.

The Talos Precept is ready in humanity’s far future, besides humanity has wiped itself out and all that continues to be are the robots we left behind to hold on our legacy. First, although, they have to bear a gauntlet of puzzles, the thought being that “play” is a common component of the human expertise, all whereas studying in regards to the final days of natural human life on Earth and hopefully absorbing the teachings therein.

It is a very intelligent strategy to tie collectively an in any other case disparate assortment of physics and logic puzzles, and I loved the way in which the narrative unfolded as a lot as I appreciated fixing the brainteasers—The Talos Precept strikes simply the appropriate steadiness of creating me really feel good with out requiring me to really be good.

It usually goes for $30 on Steam, so the $10 value for this Humble Bundle is a stable deal even with out the opposite video games it comprises. But it surely does include them—you will additionally get Superliminal, Manifold Backyard, The Pedestrian, and The Witness, all standout puzzlers in their very own right.

For $5 extra, you may add a pair extra video games to the combination: Patrick’s Parabox, an exquisite Sokoban-style field pusher, and Taiji, which I have not performed and so cannot touch upon—but it surely’s bought 93% constructive opinions on Steam, in order that’s undoubtedly reference.

The Talos Precept is the massive hook on this bundle for me, in case that wasn’t clear already, however the entire video games in it go for greater than $15 at common value, so it is laborious to go improper regardless of which one you dig essentially the most. Think about it a two-thumbs-up suggestion from me, and you have got one week to select it up: The Thoughts-Bending Masterpieces Humble Bundle might be dwell till March 1.
