Puzzle-platformer Teslagrad sounds so, so good


5:00 PM on 05.06.2013



Consider me highly intrigued. Teslagrad is a platforming game in which a boy has become involved in a conspiracy surrounding the king of a "steampunk-inspired version of old Europe." It's also the debut release of Rain Games; talk about a strong first showing.

The trailer -- and the hand-drawn art showcased within -- speaks for itself, so please, give it a moment of your time. The developers describe Teslagrad as having a non-linear world and voiceless storytelling, which should be a smart fit for the setting itself, a place called the Tesla Tower. Can't you picture it already?

Fittingly, the boy will use electromagnetic powers to make it through the tower's puzzles. Yes, that sounds just lovely. No word on a release, but I'm hopeful we can play this before the year is over.

Review: Teslagrad

Ever since it was first revealed, I've been attracted to the basic conceit of Teslagrad. Perhaps due to the volume of available titles in the genre, indie puzzle platformers have become a bit polarizing, but that never repell...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
