Rain Games and publisher Modus Games presented their new project, the long-awaited sequel to Teslagrad: Teslagrad 2, at Gamescom 2022. It’s a 2D Metroidvania with hand-drawn graphics based on Scandinavian mythology and folklore.
In the development announcement, the first gameplay trailer, which you can see below, introduces the game’s new protagonist, Lumina. The young girl will use her newfound powers of Teslamancy to navigate the environment, solving physics-based puzzles and avoiding the traps and enemies that come her way.
Peter Wingaard Meldahl, Project Lead at Rain Games, commented:
“I’ve dreamed of making Teslagrad 2 for years. The story, gameplay and mechanics have been brewing in my head since we released the original and to see that dream come true is a really awesome feeling. “
We had the opportunity to interview Rain Games during Gamescom about this exciting project so we can bring you updates on this Metroidvania that promises to break new ground in the genre very soon.
