Our Gamescom experience: There and Back Again

gamescomwttw

Our four days at Gamescom have been a total madness. But, oh, what a sweet madness!

World to the West was part of the Nintendo booth at the event, as you know, along with other great Nindies (don’t you love the name?) for Wii U: Severed, Jotun, Super Meat Boy, SteamWorld Heist and Axiom Verge. We were confident that our game would be greeted warmly, given the reception and success that Teslagrad achieved when it was released on Wii U. And yes, that proved to be quite right.

Teslagrad, now also available on Wii U in Japan!

Teslagrad is already out for PS3 and PS4 in Japan courtesy of our friends at Square Enix, but we’re happy to say that thanks to Unity Japan and Kakehashi games, We’ve also been able to release it on Wii U overseas! It feels great to see it sitting on the eShop landing page next to huge titles like Xenoblade X!

We’re happy to announce that our game Teslagrad is available digitally in Japan from today, February 18, 2015!
Thank you to our partners Square Enix (PlayStation platforms) and Unity Japan/Kakehashi Games (Nintendo Wii U/PC), who have worked diligently to bring Teslagrad to their shores.
Without them, far fewer people would be able to discover the world of teslagrad, and we’re very happy to recieve such great support.

We’ve updated the japanese translation of the PC version to ensure the best possible experience for customers in Japan. To all of our potential new players, hope you’ll have fun!

steamworld_dig_fanart

Last, but not least, the final piece of Indie Connection fanart is Rusty from Image & Form’s excellent SteamWorld Dig. Looks like he’s stumbled over the skull of a certain bird boss from Teslagrad here! (Also, on the note of Teslagrad/Steamworld Dig crossovers: I’m fairly certain Rusty must be a distant relative of Fernus. That strong jawline! Those handsome, glassy eyes! That fiery furnace in his belly!)
