As we venture deeper into the castle that form the foundation of Teslagrad’s hulking tower, we see that beyond the partial renovations seen in the previous post, things are in quite a state of disrepair.
Though whoever was here before is long gone, they’ve left the power running throughout the tower.
Plating emitting strong magnetic forces and diodes emitting deadly arcs of electricity have been placed haphazardly in this musty room, perhaps as a desperate measure to fend off the intruders- If we look closely at the crumling brick wall in the background, we can see the faint outline of a human figure turned to ash.
Tiny multipurpose robots (“voltwalkers”) appear from a protruding pipe at regular interwalls. These provide people and objects with a strong electromagnetic charge.
This can be useful for transportation and acrobatics in conjuction with the strong magnetic fields present in the tower- provided they’re not used in too close proximity to deadly arcs of electricity, of course.
Moving forward, we come across a section of the tower that’s been crudely retrofitted to accomodate some kind of giant machinery. Intertwined with the pipe system and seemingly stretching far beyond this simple chamber, it likely fills nooks and crannies throughout the tower. An endless row of voltwalkers clatter over plates charging electromagnetic boxes, switching their polarity to drive an array of pistons before disappearing back into the darkness of the pipes.
In the heart of Teslagrad there is a grand tower, its base an ancient hamlet, with layers upon layers of newer and more advanced structures built on top.
Our entry point to the tower is through a musty, crumbling castle that once composed the city walls of Teslagrad, now haphazardly reinforced and outfitted with electrical devices with little regard to its original architecture.
We see the signs of conflict here, walls have been crushed and doors broken down, dusty corpses littering the ground.
Ominous statues of hooded figures that seem to be holding the power of lightning in their hands tells us that this is a place one should enter with a modicum of respect.
A courtyard, shrouded in mist with a long-dead figure slumped over at the base of a statue. There’s signs of struggle.
An industrial-looking drilling machine lies near the inner wall, broken downe from breaching the tower’s perimeter. It’s likely to have been a gift from the neighbouring country of Motorland back when the relations between the nations were more amiable. No attempts at repair have been made- it seems whoever raided this place left in a hurry.
As we enter the tower we come across an area that seems to have been modestly remodeled into a training facility of sorts- it seems a last minute attempt at a basic crash course in self defence and electromagnetic manipulation was cut short by the intruding forces.

One year ago, on Friday the 13th, right in the middle of a steam sale, we launched Teslagrad after several years of hard work.
A big thanks to all of those who have bought it since and thereby helped us survive while porting it to Wii U, Playstation 3, Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita.
The entire Rain Games Team is gathering today for a traditional norwegian pre-xmas feast of Crispy roasted pork, mutton ribs, sausage, sauerkraut, rutabaga stew and Risalamande to celebrate,
We’ll raise a toast to all of you when we do!
Teslagrad is available digitally everywhere in the western world right now for PC and Wii U,
and in all of Europe for Playstation 3 and Playstation 4.
Boxed edition is available in Spain, France, Italy and Germany right now,
and it’s coming to The rest of Europe and America early next year-
We’re really looking forward to the launch!
Perhaps we’ll make it to other platforms down the line if it does well, who knows?
