Rain Games has announced that is now developing Teslagrad 2, a sequel to the 2013 side scrolling platformer Teslagrad. Teslagrad 2 will follow in the original’s footsteps with it also being a side scrolling platformer with Metroidvania elements chucked in. The visual design will be similar to what players will have experienced with the original. Teslagrad 2 will take players to the region of Wyrmheim, a place inspired by Rain Games’ home of Norway. There will be a lot of Viking and Nordic influences throughout the game.
Peter W. Meldahl of Rain Games, said:
“Teslagrad was our first game as an indie team and the response was amazing. From then on, fans have been asking us about a sequel, and it has never been far from my mind. This game has been rattling at the back of my mind for 6 years while we’ve been working on our games, I’ve hoarded the best ideas from those years to use for Teslagrad 2.”
Rain Games is not just working on Teslagrad 2. The studio is also developing Mesmer, a game set in the same world as the Teslagrad series, and is Kickstarting a project called Girl Genius – Adventures In Castle Heterodyne. In our review for the original Teslagrad, Stefan wrote:
Teslagrad is a game with flaws, with the difficulty level and a fairly short length the two main offenders, but it’s also a charming title, and one which I enjoyed playing.
Hopefully, by the time the PS3 release rolls around (it’s currently on PC), some of the kinks can be worked out, because the art style, music and non-verbal storytelling help it to stand out from the crowd. There’s a lot of variety and plenty of clever ideas in the gameplay which combine to make some great moments and puzzles within the game.
