Teslagrad follow-up World to the West coming in May

Change of pace

Rain Games' follow-up to Teslagrad is not, as one might expect, another puzzle-platformer futzing with magnets and charges. No, while World to the West [official site] is set in the same world as Teslagrad, it's a top-down "action puzzler" which looks a fair sight sunnier and sillier. It looks great and all, as you can see in the recent trailer below - which also confirms a release date of May 5th:

That's really cute. A nice change from the misery (oh oh misery) of Teslagrad. I dug Teslagrad, to be clear, but it's nice to get out in the sunshine.

Here's what Rain Games say:

"World to the West is a pulpy, cartoony top down action adventure inspired by European adventure comics. Take control of four unique characters —Lumina the Teslamancer, Knaus the orphan, Miss Teri the mind bender and the gloriously mustachioed strongman, Lord Clonington—, each with their their own motivations, skills and interweaving storylines, as they seek to escape the dark shadow of an ancient prophecy. Travel through corrupt colonies, lush jungles and frozen tundras, as you snoop through the secrets of a forgotten civilization."

World to the West is coming to Windows, Mac, and Linux on May 5th. The Steam page is already up.
