Teslagrad, you may recall, was Rain Games’ 2013 breakout hit, a puzzle-platformer about a young hero with electromagnetic powers in a gorgeously hand-drawn steampunk world. Today, the Norwegian outfit announced their next game – World To The West [official site], an equally-pretty “action puzzler” that’s set in the same universe and whose protagonists also harness special powers.

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!
