GLaDOS, the villainous and hilarious robot from the incredibly popular puzzle series Portal, is featured in a new clever trailer for The Talos Principle 2.
As far as first-person puzzle games go, The Talos Principle 2 (and its prequel) are certainly inspired by Portal. In this “Let’s Play” featuring GLaDOS, she has her own thoughts about the similarities between them. Check it out.
“You can’t please everyone,” says Devolver Digital in a press release. “We gave an early review key to monstrous(ly intelligent and wonderful, please don’t kill us) artificial intelligence GLaDOS, expecting her to resonate with the game’s vision of a future where humanity is extinct and sentient robots rule the world.”
Of course, GLaDOS doesn’t particularly enjoy her time with the game. “Whatever. It’s a big industry. There’s room for another first-person puzzle game featuring cubes, pressure pads, laser beams, and portals,” adds Devolver. “She’s just jealous that our game has cats that you can pet.”
The Talos Principle 2 has certainly had a strong launch weekend, receiving critical acclaim. Our own review referred to it as the “puzzle game of the year”, noting that “Croteam has succeeded in creating an incredible sequel in The Talos Principle 2. The puzzles are better, the world is larger, and the narrative is even more thought-provoking.”
The Talos Principle 2 is available now on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.
