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.

What should I say.. this is one of my, probably, surely even my favorite Indi-game of all time! I had so much fun with it, I hope you will have too!
So, first of all, what kind of game is Teleglitch? It is a [relatively] random generated ,,dungeon"-crawler Topdown-shooter with a perma-death mechanic, great crafting, micromanagement, many enemies and a striking [horror-kind of] atmosphere, made by some cool sounds and your limited vision set in an abandoned sience-fiction apocalyptic scenario.

The story/setting: Something went wrong in a research station on a planet in outer space. They wont respond, so you and your team were sent to find out what is going on. Turns out, everyone turned into mutants and all the androids and robots are infected with some kind of virus. You managed to lock yourself into a room, but your supplies are limited and you can´t contact anyone from your current location. So, the only way to get out of this hellhole, obviously, is to search the whole station for a way to communicate with someone to get you out of there.

The gameplay: You basically try to gather supplies, craft new useful stuff and shoot everything in your way. You have a variety of cool weapons and ineresting tools. Micromanagment is also a big deal in this game, as you can´t drag everything you have into the next level and have to decide if you will leave weapons, health-kits, tools or stuff to craft witch maybe be important later on. But *What I like most about the game* is the sense of progression! After every level I finished I thought that, no matter how hard I would try, I wouldn´t be able to make it to the next level because I used all I had and only just made it to where I was. But then I would try it again and get much further. Also, getting to the new location, getting/craftin the new weapons and tools and seeing and defeating the new enemies adds much more to that sense of prgression.

One last thing: Look at one of the screenshots, just to be sure you can handle the graphics ;] I find them pretty cool.
Also, your skill in gaming should be atleast average, maybe better as this game isn´t easy. I would also recommend to bring some patience/ passion. Also, don´t use the music.

A real gem of a game. Feels like a mix of Dead Space, Loaded from ps1, Aliens, crossed with the Item collection of Symphony of the night; tons of item play. The game lacks music, but it's fixed easy by playing StarCraft 1 music on your own.

The game throws curve balls at you, and also lets you choose which path you take when going in teleporters, so if you've never played before, it gives you a feeling of choice, and facing the unknown.
You never know what you'll face so it requires thinking, and good choice making.

You can craft things like experemental drugs that make you faster, altar guns into things like full atuo pistols, and also craft things like enemey detectors.
But you always need to question... which choice is right for now, and what happens if I'm mobbed.

The game starts you out sort of slow, and if you don't watch it, you could get a false sense of security, enter a room, and get mobbed so bad you'll be in a corner dead in seconds.

You'll think you're rolling like an ace, then BAM!! wrong place wrong time.
There's also a story element that's text based, it's really well done, and mixes modern symbolism; like mentions of people arguing over the best robot types for days on online fourms x,D.

And there's the desire to know what the items do; the more you discover the more is added to the data base in menu, and the world at large in game can be uuncovered slowly by using computer terminals in game; stuffs really interesting if you're a reader.
There's allot of info in game you can discover that paints a picture of the world and story, and it really does a good job of it; it's never drawn out too much.

If you dig mystery, survival, light crafting, and you have stones of brass, get this game.
It really is fun, but it pulls no punches, it's a thinking man's game.
Craft nail bombs, make stims, or use the explosive to try and get into a secret area? The game will make you question each move you make.

Don't give it your all, or don't think hard, and you'll end up dead.
Really well done top down survival shooter with a realisitc pace; slow to frantic getting jumpped situations, for those with the stones and mind to brave it.

Teleglitch. In my opinon - which is probably not very valuable due to my lack of experience with roguelikes - best roguelike I played. It has awesome hard combat, but it's not just it. The game is as much about combat as about dealing with limited resources.

One of the most under-rated indie games I've ever played. Great atmosphere, incredibly intense, and demanding skill required. This game is a throwback to when good games were actually hard.

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.

Roguelikes are really in right now, but there are few that get it right--fast paced, emergent gameplay that you don't mind doing over when you die. Teleglitch is probably the best Roguelike(like) I've played. It manages to get that sense of creepiness and terror of System Shock with the simplest graphics. Highly recommended.

Take a typical top-down shooter. Add in a crapload of empty hallways. And run it at a resolution of... oh, 120p sounds good. That gives you Teleglitch.

Suffice to say, I do not at all see what the appeal is.

not working.

I have this game, I'd like to play it, but for some reason, I get sound, and a little message that steam is trying to launch it. I have windows 10 if that helps. I'd love to try this game.
