Rain Games made an announcement that their whimsical, magnetic, and beautiful puzzler Teslagrad will be coming to the Wii U eShop this Fall. In the game, you play as a young man who finds himself dragged into the middle of a long, forgotten, and deadly conspiracy involving a despotic king who has ruled over the land like a mad tyrant for several long years. Most of the game is spent in the Tesla Tower where you will use magnetism and some other electromagnetic powers to work your way up the tower. As you travel up you can gain new abilities and you will need to use your brains, wit, and patience to take on the many puzzles and five crazy bosses that await you.
The world of Teslagrad is set within rich 2-d hand drawn locations with steam punk inspiration and a European style backdrop. There is no dialogue, as everything plays out on what you see on the screen but there can also be things happening that you won\’t see on the screen that moves the story forward. The battles are old school and there is no annoying loading screens or wait times. The soundtrack immerses you in classic orchestra style music with a little tint of Russian inspiration plus some metal bit and electrical riffs.
Teslagrad looks like its shaping up to be quite a fun experiment. You can check out the trailer below and let us know if Teslagrad is something you might pick up this Fall.
