Rain Games, the developer behind the indie sensation, Teslagrad, which has so far sold over 1.6 million copies, today announced its next project: World to the West, an action puzzler set in the Teslagrad universe.
In World to the West, players control four charactersÃ¢â‚¬â€each with their own unique identities and abilitiesÃ¢â‚¬â€to explore untamed jungles and frozen tundras in search of an ancient prophecy. They must be careful though. Nothing is ever what it seems in this world of corrupt colonies and forgotten civilizations.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“With the enormous response Teslagrad received from players, we wanted our next title to share a connection, but not be a sequelÃ¢â‚¬Â said Peter Meldahl, CEO of Rain Games. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Setting World to the West in the same universe as Teslagrad allowed us to accomplish this. People who have played Teslagrad will experience completely new worlds, characters and storylines, but will also enjoy some familiar faces and the same challenging gameplay Teslagrad is known for.Ã¢â‚¬Â
