Our first look at how the sequel's coming along
Back at the Future Games Show Gamescom 2022, we got a surprise-reveal for Teslagrad 2, and it’s coming to Switch in Spring 2023. Today brings us some new gameplay footage along with hands-on impressions, both of which you can see in the video above.
Teslagrad 2 joins new hero, Lumina, as she crash-lands into an uncharted region and discovers an ancient tower brimming with technology. Lumina’s journey will see her harness the forgotten art of Teslamancy, wielding electromagnetic abilities to solve perplexing physics-based puzzles, explore winding caves and industrial chambers, and outwit the mysterious enemies and traps awaiting her.
The game’s hand-drawn visuals use pastels and muted tones to bring vistas of untamed nature to life, as well as steampunk visions of Old Europe as inspired by Scandinavian culture and folklore. Lumina’s command of Teslamancy makes traversing Teslagrad 2’s somber environments feel satisfying and empowering, allowing players to manipulate realistic physics and unique powers to overcome obstacles and survive surreal dangers.
