Each level of Sigils of Elohim sees users manipulating pieces by tapping and holding on them, while using a second finger to rotate their orientation. From there, they drag these pieces onto a checkerboard in an effort to fill the entire board using each individual piece, with no gaps or overlapping between the pieces. Each level is timed, and players can replay stages to decrease their total time taken within the game.
As players complete groups of stages, they receive codes that will be redeemable within The Talos Principle upon its release later this year. A first overall “set” of puzzles is available to play for free now, and includes four prizes, with two more puzzle sets coming in future updates, all leading up to the release of The Talos Principle later this year.
The Talos Principle is described as a first-person philosophical puzzle game, which sees users assuming the role of a sentient artificial intelligence. Players will be challenged to complete “a series of increasingly complex puzzles woven into a metaphysical parable about intelligence and meaning in an inevitably doomed world.”
