By Ashley Woodcock, 9 months ago
The "indie sensation" that sold over 1.6 million copies on PC, Teslagrad, will be coming to the Xbox One in a matter of days thanks to publisher Snow Cannon Games and developer Rain Games. 10 new levels will also be included with the title and will be exclusive to the Xbox One version of the game, offering a challenge to both new and returning players.

The 2D puzzle platformer sees players wielding the power of electromagnetism to solve puzzles. Navigate through the gorgeous looking platformer and discover the secrets of the abandoned Tesla Tower. The game is set in a steampunk-inspired vision of old Europe. The levels are set to be challenging and look beautiful thanks to the hand-drawn environments.

Peter Meldahl, CEO of Rain Games, is excited for the additional levels on Xbox One:

We’re looking forward to continuing the Teslagrad story and challenge on Xbox. Our new levels not only increase Teslagrad’s playtime by about 10 percent, they also increase its difficulty. These levels were designed to be some of the most challenging in the entire game.
Rain Games is certainly proud of the response that the game has received on PC. The title has been nominated for two Nordic Game awards, including Best Game of the Year, and has alsohad a Unity Award nomination for Best 2D Visuals.
