Teslagrad is an indie puzzle platformer game for the Wii U, out now on the Nintendo eShop. But puzzle platformers are a genre that is a little played out now, especially coming from indie game developers, right? So what makes Teslagrad special?
Well, Teslagrad, you see, is a puzzle platformer with a twist, with its electric (literally)/magnetic (also literally) theme. The game sees you, as the last Teslamancer, on a quest to reverse the fate of your kind, and try to find out exactly what happen, as you manipulate electricity and magnetism on your way to the heart of the dark Tesla Tower.
Teslagrad was originally released for PC, although it was also confirmed to have a Wii U version right back then. The Wii U version was then pushed back for release after the PC version, and it is nice to see it finally materialize. It is also nice to see that even though big name third parties may have abandoned Nintendo and the Wii U, indie game developers, at least, are still fully on board.
