Rain Games has introduced a sequel to its hit 2013 indie, Teslagrad. Aptly titled Teslagrad 2, the upcoming recreation might be an exploration-based Metroidvania like its predecessor, however will include new additions that “that will set it apart from the original.”

Teslagrad was our first game as an indie team and the response was amazing,” Rain Games’ Peter W. Meldahl mentioned in a press launch. “From then on, fans have been asking us about a sequel, and it has never been far from my mind. This game has been rattling at the back of my mind for 6 years while we’ve been working on our games, I’ve hoarded the best ideas from those years to use for Teslagrad 2.”

Teslagrad‘s visuals and magnetic physics wooed critics over. The sequel will build upon these, and will be based in the “unexplored” region of Wyrmheim.

“The game’s design is about to be closely based mostly on the builders’ dwelling of Norway,” reads the press launch. “Viking carvings and Nordic runes are at the heart of Wyrmheim, shaping the environment from the foundation up.”

Rain Games is engaged on two different titles concurrently: Mesmer and Girl Genius – Adventures In Castle Heterodyne. Mesmer is a “social survival game” that’s set to launch quickly. It was introduced for all current-gen consoles and PC however a launch date has but to be confirmed.

Girl Genius – Adventures In Castle Heterodyne is an action-adventure recreation at present in search of funding on Kickstarter. PlayStation and Xbox variations have but to be introduced and could also be a part of stretch targets.

Platforms for Teslagrad 2 haven’t been revealed.
