About This Game

In a cold, dark future dominated by mega-corporations, a small lonely planet on the edge of habitable space is the site of a shadowy research facility specializing in necrotic tissue reactivation. You are a scientist who has suddenly awoken to the realization that you are the lone survivor. The rest of the facility’s personnel have all been killed – micro-chipped and reactivated as combatants by the facility’s central processing AI.

Teleglitch: Die More Edition is a roguelike top-down shooter with retro pixel graphics. Featuring procedurally generated maps that change with each play through, you will never experience the same facility twice. Clutch your gun, walk down the dark corridors and enter each new room hoping those last few rounds of ammunition will be enough. Feel the anxiety, the paranoia and the sheer terror of Teleglitch.

Key Features

  • Over 20 types of enemies to combat
  • More than 40 types of weapons and items
  • 10 levels that radically change their structure every time you play
  • 10+ hours of play time (it gets harder the further you get)
  • Detailed database with full dossiers of each monster
  • Scavenge random equipment to craft new and deadly gear like The Can Gun (empty can + nails + explosives)
  • A sinister narrative filled with greedy military corporations covert experiments
  • The risk of permanent death creates an atmosphere of fear and dread

The Die More Edition features:
  • 5 bonus levels
  • Additional items and weapons
  • Upgraded and more deadly enemy AI
  • Expanded dossiers and lore content

close to 50 hours into the game and i still havent beaten it. ive gotten pretty far, but damn is this game difficult. i mean it is very difficult, but at the same time it is very very fun, and very rewarding to play. it feels very rewarding to finally beat the snake robot boss and advance to the next level.

as with any proper rogue-like you can only really advance in the game once you really understand the game. once you get the mechanics down, and you understand how the enemies behave, the strong and weak points of the guns. and of course you must really understand and be able to strategies your play through. inventory management is a must, you have to plan out if you are going to keep this item or that in hopes of using it in a later game to craft a certain item, or if you want to discard it in favor of carrying another item.

you also have to take into account ammo. do i really want to use up my ammo on these enemies now or should i save it for later and try to kill them with my knife, risking taking health damage. to get far in the game you must understand when to do this and when not to, along with other gameplay choices to make. and i think this is what this game does well and what makes it so fun and rewarding to play. you will die a lot before you understand these things, but if you pull through all those deaths you will get good and find this game to be excellent.

A real no regrets indie game. At all. TRUST ME. The story is slow and generic in the beginning but then it runrs realy inmersive. This game should deserve more atention. It's way inmersive and at some point you find your self escaping death on every corner, in a heavy fast-paced game.
wish there where more about it.

It is some sort of witchcraft how Teleglitch accomplishes so much with so little. The graphics manage to convey such a large amount despite the whole game taking up somewhere around 60 megs. The visual effects combined with the sound effects give the weapons a real sense of presence. I think this game might accomplish more with less better than anything I've ever played in my life.

The basis of the game is: You are somewhere where something not-so-great has occured and you are trying to escape while piecing together what has happened. You are an engineer and can combine inventory items into all sorts of neat stuff.... discovering what can be combined into what is part of the fun.... but surprisingly the combat and atmosphere are OUTSTANDING despite the... somewhat unrefined graphics. I never buy anything on Steam that isn't on sale but this is one of examples of a game that is fully worth the full asking price. The DLC is also pretty neat.... it adds a soundtrack (the original game has no music)... but the music must be accessed by the Steam Music player... simply Shift-Tab while in-game and select the soundtrack. A warning: missing out on the audio cues from enemies can be a disadvantage... but the DLC also adds multiple different starting scenerios. By this I mean instead of starting out with a 9mm pistol and an extra clip or two you might start with a revolver and extra ammo, or a bunch of dynamite and no gun, or a number of other situations. It privides much-needed diversity in the very early-stages of the game and forces you to get good at using different weapons and tactics.

In short: Teleglitch is an amazing game that does a lot with 60 megs of data. It is HARD.... like REALLY REALLY hard but I've had a blast despite never getting past level 7.... I actually died in the very first room on level 7 and died in extreme fashion. Think Dark Souls-style difficulty mixed with a large helping of Dead Space, all in a top-down environment. This game just has "it", that Special Sauce that just makes it fun. I read about this game on RockPaperShotgun and, having learned to trust their opinions, game-wise, decided to give it a chance when I found it on sale. I'm pretty sure this has been the only game I've played since I bought it aside from a little bit of the Fallout 3/Fallout New Vegas combining Tale of Two Wastelands. I've started up Teleglitch each of the last couple of days to just play a round or two (you have one life per playthrough... so a "round" would essentially be until you finally die.... which happens quite a bit) but ended up playing for the entire day. Despite all of my roughly-30 attempts ending in terrible, terrible failure: this game is just a lot of fun. Way moreso than the sum of it's parts would suggest.

This game is awesome. Don't get me wrong, there is a level of difficulty that carries on after even you've learned from past mistakes, but the thing that makes this game awesome (for me atleast) is that you can feel yourself learning, so there isn't as much frustration, and sometimes the deaths can make you laugh. The game seems to have high replay value. I would gladly pay more for this game if that was the case.

This game is hard. I mean holy Jesus almighty on a pogo stick, this game is really hard. I've played this game alot, and still haven't made it though Level 6 out of 10. It is also utterly brilliant. It is a roguelike that gives the reward of experience and knowledge for your defeats, rather than new bonuses to help you on your next run. The best you can get is a checkpoint start at a later floor, and you are purposely underpowered if you choose to use this option. From when you start in the cold broom closet on Level 1 to when you are facing down the AI Core on Level 10, you are on your own. A bullet will kill you just as easily. The atmosphere of tension and fear that this creates is palpaple. Peeking around corners for huge minigun wielding zombies, running chased by swarms of taser armed robot drones, or locked in a room with hulking warwalkers, terror will be your primary emotion. The second will be the mixture of relief and sadness as your latest run comes to an end. If you like winning games, then maybe this isn't your cup of tea, most people will never complete this game. If you want a wild ride, and the pleasure of inching closer to your goal, learning how to survive in a brutal enviroment, this is your game. Get it right now.

I like it. Got it for free from Humble Bundle, and it was worth every penny. Don't let my ~4 hours logged fool you, I usually play the non-Steam version from Humble, so my hours don't get looged. My actual play time is closer to 100 hrs.

I can't speak for the stability of the WIndows or Mac versions, but the Linux/SteamOS version is rock-solid.

The difficulty is high, and the procedurally-generated levels keep everything fresh. Ammo is tight. Don't miss!
Overall: 8/10.
The general asking price of $12.99 seems a little steep for a three-year-old, low-budget game, but at the current sale price (2016-06-13) of $3.24, it's a great value.

So as one of the 1% of folks who have beaten this game I can tell you it's worth every hour of your time and all times you'll get smashed by rogue robots and mind controlled super-soldiers with laser guns.

The lore, the monsters, the challenge are legendary. Think a more sophisticated Doom or Quake if they were isometric 3rd person rogue-likes instead of FPS.

The feeling of achievement and victory when beating a boss or challenging encounter is some of the best in any game ever. You just need patience, skill, and most of all the ability to GIT GUD. Master the lowly knife and conserving ammo/health/materials if you want to have any chance of beating this game. It's a masterpiece if you have what it takes to fight through the pain.

20/10 will zap robot squids and demonic snake tanks again.

Normally when you play this sort of game you find yourself saving your good weapons and ammo for some hypothetical time of need that never seems to arrive.

In Teleglitch you will find that time. You will run out of ammo. And then you will die.

Usually around level 3.

This game is amazing.

I like everything about this game except the difficulty. I'm only a very casual gamer so I'd probably get on better with the die-less edition, but everything else about it appeals to me, just a shame I'm no good at it.
