Teslagrad 1.4.1 is here! Steam Cloud ready & more

Hello there!

A new version of Teslagrad has been released, bringing a couple of improvements and a new feature which has been long awaited: Steam Cloud compatibility!

Once you open Teslagrad after updating to version 1.4.1, all your saves will be transferred to Steam’s save system. If you have synchronization enabled, this will mean you have your saves in the cloud as long as you are connected to your account. Please bear in mind that once Steam has any of your saves in the cloud, the old save folder will be ignored (and that means ‘ignored’, not ‘deleted’).

FAQ

  • Does this also affect settings? No.
  • I don’t see my old saves, have they been deleted? No, your old savegames will not be overwritten in any case. Teslagrad might, however, prioritize to show your cloud saves, if any are present.
  • Is there any way to delete the saves from Steam’s save system? Yes, there is a new keyword in the settings file: “resetCloudSavesNextRun”. This will cause Teslagrad to first delete all Teslagrad savegames from the cloud, then upload from the old folder again… if there are any saves stored there. If no saves are found in the old folder, the cloud will now be empty of Teslagrad savegames. Make sure there is a line like the following: “resetCloudSavesNextRun: True” after the line containing ‘isFullScreen’.

Warning: Be careful when modifying the settings file! SettingsConfig.asset can be found at:

Windows: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Rain\Teslagrad\Settings
Linux: ~/.config/unity3d/Rain/Teslagrad/Settings
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/unity.Rain.Teslagrad/Settings

Besides, we have also added new Controller Mappings for Xbox One controllers, which should make things easier for all of you using them. Hope you enjoy it!

“Teslagrad is highly rewarding and an ultimately fantastic game.”
Destructoid

“[Teslagrad] understands the golden rule of spinning a good story: Show, Don't Tell.”

“The colourful backgrounds, expressive movements, and focus on puzzles over combat recalls a mix of Braid and Limbo.”

About This Game

A journey begins... A treacherous tower... Unravel its mysteries!

Discover the secrets kept in the long abandoned Tesla Tower!
Magnetism and other electromagnetic powers will help you explore a non-linear world of beautiful hand-drawn environments, in a steampunk-inspired vision of old Europe. A young boy suddenly finds himself embroiled in a long-forgotten conspiracy, involving a despotic king who rules the nation with an iron fist. Jump into an outstanding adventure told through voiceless storytelling, writing your own part. Armed with ancient Teslamancer technology and your own ingenuity and creativity, your path lies through the decrepit Tesla Tower and beyond.

Features

  • Complex puzzles! Put your sense of logic to the test and cleverly manipulate the world around you using electricity and magnetism, the lifeblood of the game. Puzzles will range from “pff, that wasn't so bad” to keyboard-smashing, controller-chewing frustration.
  • Explore! Make your way through rich 2D hand-drawn surroundings as you journey into — and beyond— Tesla Tower, picking up use amazing new items as you go.
  • Visual storytelling! Tired of all those words in your video games? Have no fear, Teslagrad features not a single snippet of text or squeak of dialogue. Everything is purely visual, and the entire story is told through what you see (and sometimes what you don't see).
  • Steampunk powered! Discover a dystopic and mind-blowing rainy-and-brainy setting, presenting a steampunk vision of an old Europe-inspired new world.
  • Old-school boss fights! Use your skills and wits to overcome the 5 incredible final bosses eager to demagnetize you.
  • No disruptions! That means no loading screens, no GUI, no cutscenes. Just the game and you.
  • Mesmerizing soundtrack! Awesome mix of classical orchestra, with a touch of Russian inspiration and a myriad of metal bits and electrical stuff.

Teslagrad is available for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux.

"It's beautiful minimalist storytelling, and it fits really well with the gameplay proper, which is delightful in more ways than one." Jared Rosen, Indiestatik.

Beautiful art, graphics and animations.
Cute music and effects.
Easy gameplay but it was hard for me to master it with the keyboard. Much more effective a game controller.
The game requires patience and skill, which I don't currently have any of them.
I'm curious though about the story, so I am willing to wait and watch a friend of mine playing this game. I think it will be worthy.

Just finished the game, think its the best game I've played yet on steam.

This game really impressed me. I love metroid/vania style games and liked the lack of enemies for the most part with a focus on puzzles and collection. The controls felt nice and when I died it was my fault. The bosses are hard but the attacks are mostly pattern based, not very random so I'd learn and get better with each try. The puzzles could get challenging but made sense and while timing was important in places I never felt rushed by the game. The art style and atmosphere was great and the music wasn't bad. Level design with a central tower and sub areas of rooms made for fairly easy backtracking to find scrolls. The few powers felt useful and were taught well by the rooms they preceded, without any superfluous poorly implemented extras. Also the game doesn't punish the player for dying with close checkpoints and fast respawn so trial and error is not penalized, which is great because I died a lot. Overall this game avoided many of the pitfalls I've seen in games of this genre, while really shining at what it does.

---info---
Clever puzzles but require patience to master your abilities
Beautiful art and fine sountrack
Smooth animation
Magnetic mechanics everywhere!
Free roam in Tesla Tower

Visual representation of the backstory (puppet theaters, and ancient scrolls)
Verrry hard boss fights to the point you might not procceed
Two endings based on how much ancient scrolls you found (some spots are very hard to access)
All achievements are based on how much ancient scrolls you found


Quick tip: re-map to dpad at some spots if you play with a controller
