The Talos Principle has an interesting way of outing gamers who picked up the title through piracy. Those gamers will find themselves trapped in an elevator without a means of leaving, short of restarting the game entirely and then getting stuck once more.
This isn’t a glitch, as one specific Steam user learned while posting on the support forums for the game. Croteam, the developer of The Talos Principle, did this as a way of outing and revealing pirates. Here’s a tweet with a screenshot that shares the details from Devolver Digital.

I like it.
While I haven’t played this game, word has it that it’s a Portal-esque puzzle affair with a high head in philosophy. That description and word of this clever way to treat pirates sounds pretty good to me.
