Welcome to Teslagrad Forum! – Introduce yourself thread.
Sup guys!

My name is Wotan (yea it is) and I'm a spanish linux-head.
My os is linux mint 15 kde and I'm in love with it.
That's why I'm so thankful for developing teslagrad for linux as well!
Linux gaming community is evolving and getting bigger, and that's great.
Can't wait to try out your game and help as much as possible during the beta


BTW LiamDawe your website "gamingonlinux" rocks! That's how I found out this chance! Love it!
Greetings all,

My name is Bryan. I am from Cape Town, South Africa.

I am a huge champion of Linux and am very excited to be a part of this adventure!
Hello, my name is Peter, i am wannabe-programmer from Russia.
Todd here, the man behind LinuxGameNews.com and LinuxGameConsortium.com (a new and upcoming game store).
Originality and innovation are paramount in the gaming industry and we want to make sure gamers of all genres find exactly that. We have been putting together some fantastic games that have yet to be released. And we want to make sure Teslagrad is in the list.
Our goal is to bring developers together to best support cross-platform gaming that is in demand, finally.
So we are looking for feedback and input from other games who are keen to see something different on the market.
Best Regards,

Todd Batrynchuk

I am also a owner of a Linux Gaming website... though it is for Dutch readers. LinuxGaming.NL

This game looked so sweet I couldn't resist the call for Linux testers...
So here I am!
Hi folks, Munt de Fems here!

I'm an editor at GamingOnLinux and I really dig puzzle platformers, so I couldn't miss this chance to alpha-test Teslagrad.
Hiii everyone!! :D
I'm from Costa Rica, and love linux!! been playing with it for around 5 years and I'm very excited about playing this game and obviously, even more so in linux!! :)
Hi everyone

My name's Ellinggton, a frenchy with with an english nickname ? Yes, this is the name of the main character of my first published Sci-Fi book. I'm a writer, a actor, and a father (the best part ever !)
I'm also a gamer, found of indie games, and very happy to join the teslagrad adventure.

So, as we say here :

Merki et a très vite !

Hi everyone!

I'm Fernando, 29 years old, and I'm using GNU/Linux for more than 8 years now. I use basically only GNU/Linux, both at home and at work. I started with Conectiva 8, then I used Slackware from 8.1 to 12.something, with a little of Arch meanwhile at work, and I'm currently using Gentoo (home and work). I have a netbook with no power to build packages from ebuilds, so I have Sabayon on it.
I've been playing games on GNU/Linux for almost that time too :)
Lately I'm tracking kickstarter, greenlight, steamdb.info/linux, GNU/Linux Game Consortium (since yesterday, actualy it's from where I heard about Teslagrad GNU/Linux alpha), and, since today, GamingOnGNU/Linux and GNU/LinuxGameCast (thanks Liam and Pedro)(sorry, Dennis and Rob, no way I can understand Danish or Dutch). I'm always backing games that consider GNU/Linux support on kickstarter.
I'm really excited about the way we are having a lot of great games coming and being developed with GNU/Linux support. Valve bringing Steam to GNU/Linux and porting its titles, Unity supporting GNU/Linux, Leadworks bringing game development to GNU/Linux. I can count more than 90 GNU/Linux titles on my Steam library. I'm also addicted to the Humble Bundles!

I work as a Java developer in an ERP software directed to drugstores.

Well, I don't have a 'nick', exactly, I usually use just fscherrer.

My language is Brazilian Portuguese.

It's a pleasure to be here! I hope to be helpful. (Sorry for writing too much xD I read everyone's post, and took note to try not to lose any point. Oh, and sorry for my bad English too, I'll get there one day)

I'm Kico (aka Murphy's Law), and I live at Barcelona (Spain).

I'm a GNU/Linux user since the times of the Debian 3.0 Woody (so many years ago), and I'm very motivated by the idea of being a game tester in GNU/Linux (idea that I can not be possible not so much time ago).

Now my computer is running a Xubuntu 13.04 64 bits.

I hope they can solve the problems with Desura soon, 'cause I can not wait to start playing.
G'day everyone :)
I am from Australia, been gaming for 25 years on anything and everything that can play them. Linux has been my main OS for many years.
(since 2003 Debian "woody") I have tried many distro's but Fedora with KDE is where I am most happy.

It's an exciting time for gaming on Linux, and I am doing what I can to help it. Looking forward to helping ensure this game is great on my favorite OS.

I am here to help, don't be afraid to ask me for it!
Hi everyone,

My name is David, I'm 31 and I'm french.
I'm very experienced on Windows but quite new on Linux. Actually I have installed Elementary OS on my 3 computers :
- Full eOS on my old Dell D430 laptop
- Dual boot on my Core 2 Duo with Radeon 4850 eOS/W8 (struggling with Catalyst drivers :/ )
- Dual boot on my main computer, i5 2500K with Radeon 5850 (eOS/W8, Catalyst OK :) )

For those who don't know, Elementary OS (Luna beta 0.2) is based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and uses the Pantheon environnment. Quite cool :)

This is my very first experience on Linux gaming (didn't tried to install Steam games for the moment), so I'm quite excited !

I hope we'll can try the 64 bits build soon.

Hi everyone,

My name is Sebastian. I am from Szczecin, Poland. I'm glad that more and more games are created for Linux.
Hi, my name is Tobi (known as TobiSGD at linuxquestions.org), Slackware user and gamer since the days of the classics, like Atari VCS2600 and C64.
I like to support Linux gaming, so that one day I can finally get rid of my Windows installation.

Now just waiting for access to the 64 bit version, so that I can test Teslagrad on my systems.
Hi, my name is Tristan.

I have recently become a fan of the indie gaming scene. I guess I got into it because of the recent explosion of availability of games for the Linux platform, as I am a Linux-exclusive user. And I have found many of the recent big indie games extremely innovative! Faster Than Light has been one of my recent favourites.

I was attracted to Teslagrad at first because I am a big Nikola Tesla fan (check out the Oatmeal comic if you want to know why, http://theoatmeal.com/comics/tesla ) , and then looking at the actual game, I thought it looked fun! I have just played throught the first little bit, and just got the Glove, and yes I think it will be a great game.

I am also considering developing games myself, so I thought getting involved in the community might be useful and fun :)
Hello all,

My name is Paul and I've been a gamer for as long as I can remember. I have been going by "Chameleon" since Mechwarrior 2 (1995) when multiplayer games started allowing more than 8 characters in a player's name.

I've used Linux since 2001 including distros such as Slackware, Caldera OpenLinux eDesktop 2.x, Red Hat 7.x - Fedora Core 3, Gentoo (briefly), and Ubuntu since it's second release (5.04 Hoary Hedgehog) in 2005.

I'm also a fan[boy] of Android since the G1 (FINALLY A LINUX PHONE!) and currently have a Samsung Galaxy S3 running the latest AOKP nightly ROM & Amazon Kindle Fire (original model) running CyanogenMod, the original Logitech Revue Google TV, and the OUYA console.

I've been trying to find the time to learn how to make Android apps & games and dream to one day make a successful game.
With the goal of making games in mind, I upgraded my computer last year to the following (abbreviated) specs:
- Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit
- AMD FX-8120 (8-core @ 3.1 GHz)
- 16 GB DDR3 RAM
- AMD Radeon HD 6570 w/2 GB VRAM
- 1 TB main HD
- 4.5 TB (3x1.5 TB) BTRFS storage array
- 42" HDTV as monitor
I have run Linux, Win7 (VM), and Mac OS X Snow Leopard (VM) simultaneously on this hardware and it only consumed 38% of my RAM. I did that to try to get the Unity dev studio working, but it wouldn't run properly on the VMs. I've given up on that an instead contributed to the Kickstarter campaign for Leadwerks which is a complete games dev studio that is being ported to Linux so we can build games for Linux and Android, on Linux!

I'm employed as a Software Test Automation specialist and have 10 years experience in business software QA as well as helping to test games on many different platforms for fun. I'm very pleased to see significant strides in Linux gaming, including the Humble Indie Bundles (I've contributed to every one that supported Linux/Android) and Steam on Linux. I always thought WINE was the wrong answer, but better than nothing (when it works).

I enjoy riding motorcycles and have logged over 80,000 miles on 3 sportbikes & 1 power-cruiser (V-Rod) since July 10, 2007 when I bought my first bike. My wife and I moved to Southern California (from Seattle, Washington) 2 months ago partially to enjoy better riding weather more of the time. She and I also ride (2-up or each on our own bike) sometimes with my father who is 71 and still rides a Kawasaki Ninja sportbike!
Oh here have not even said hello :D

My name is Adam, also play a lot with wide variety of games, this is my first beta testing. I now live on Linux (Ubuntu) for over a year and for nothing would not go back to Windows. Otherwise, I work as a web developer and programmer, but my real profession is the mechatronics engineer. (I deal with robots, circuits, automation, plc, pic, and all things of the gear from the high-level programming languages​​.)

I love many things to deal with, linux and android programming, RepRap (3D printer), making own hydroponics plant, and all sorts of crazy looking stuff :) When I was a little i wanted to be an inventor. I'm already close to that, i'm being developed one own power source and the results are promising.

I have been done Games in HTML5 Canvas, but i prefer creative solutions and usefull programs in the first instance.

I'm sorry for my English, it's not good, I learned it when I was holiday in America.
Ubuntu 14.04.01 64bit / 4 Intel Core / 8GB RAM / SSD powered

Hello everybody !
I'm french (forgive me for my bad english, I'm really not good in english ^^") and I'm a fan of Teslagrad ! It's a very good game and I love it. I love the visual art in the game, the animation, the ideas, the narration, the music... Well the whole game :) You have done a wonderful job !
That's really nice to come here and be able to talk a little with you !
Thank you for those kind words :-)
:) Teslagrad really touched me. What it made me feel was strong ! In few words, I would say that it's a game that has his own soul (and that doesn't happens often), a thing that only really good games have. I'm so happy to be able to talk with you, and tell what I thought about the game ^^

Thanks a lot for your kind words, it's really great for us too being reached out by players who felt the game so deeply. Kudos for you too!
Hi, I'm Juts, sometimes I use Sacrijuts (because of some registering issues) and I'm a speedrunner of Teslagrad since 2 months (I think you can say that the game interested me :p), I came here just to meat some people who are interested in the game and maybe learn a thing or two about it ^^

PS : I'm sorry to tell you this, but your game is now totally broken, and it should go worse and worse with time ^^
It happens, yeah.
For the historical purposes, there was a demo speedrun contest, I believe thread is still up.

Oh yeah: http://www.teslagrad.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=175
