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

La-Mulana 2 aims to be more 'intuitive,' still hard as heck

La-Mulana was regarded by some as the hardest game ever. This isn't going to change, though Nigoro's Takami Naramura wants it to be slightly more intuitive so perhaps all those deaths don't lead to warranted frustration and ...more

Open world platformer/space shooter A.N.N.E is a retro buffet

Really, why even play clearly deficient retro games? I mean, where are the shmup segments in Metroid? Where are the open world segments in Contra? Where are the line segments in a bisected triangle? A.N.N.E. is one part platformer, one part shmup, one part RPG. And this year at PAX A.N.N.E. has all its systems in play. Maybe we'll all get to play it this year.more

Addiction allegory Spate's soundtrack is available now

Spate made a bit of a stir with its release last month, if not for its attempt to tackle themes more mature than shooting bullets at beefy dudes, then for its dated representation of absinthe as it exists and is understood to...more
