Tesla vs Lovecraft Launches March 13 on PS4

Science vs Fiction

Jaakko Maaniemi's Avatar Posted by PR Coordinator, 10tons

Hi everyone! I’m Jaakko from 10tons, and I’m happy to be back on PS Blog to talk about what to expect from our latest game, twin-stick shooter Tesla vs Lovecraft.

Some of you may know we’re no strangers to top-down twin-stick shooters. We’ve made quite a few, with various flavors. We loaded Neon Chrome with RPG and roguelite elements, while its spinoff title Jydge is all about bite sized missions and customization. In Time Recoil we focused on time slowdown mechanics and story. With Tesla vs Lovecraft we’re going back to our roots with Crimsonland-style all-action arena gameplay with tons of monsters.

In Tesla vs Lovecraft, however, the arenas are fully architectured with obstacles, gaps, walls, and buildings. Structured levels are the base for the first core feature of Tesla vs Lovecraft, the Quantum Teleport. The hero of the game, genius inventor Nikola Tesla, is not limited to just running while gunning. With the Quantum Teleport backpack he, or rather you, the player, can teleport a short distance in a blink of an eye. Better yet, it makes no difference if there’s a brick wall or a horde of monsters in the way; you can blink through anything. There’s a cooldown involved however, so you can teleport only three times in rapid succession. After that you’ll need to survive precious seconds for the teleport charges to come back up. The Quantum Teleport feature turned out great, and we’re really happy with how teleporting gives the player more opportunities to do risky stuff. Risky is fun!

The highlight of the game, however, is the Tesla-Mech battle robot. This juicy bit of monster slaying goodness is assembled from six pieces, one of which is always somewhere in the level waiting to be picked up. After collecting six pieces you can activate the Tesla-Mech for an immense boost in firepower. While all the weapons, powerups, and perks of the game are plenty powerful, nothing comes close to the Tesla-Mech. You’ll be instantly able to turn the tables on even the most massive swarm of monsters and to just shred everything in a very gratifying way. Like all good things, the Tesla-Mech only lasts for a while before exploding, scattering its pieces around the level to be collected and assembled once again.

Tesla vs Lovecraft for PS4

Tesla vs Lovecraft will be available for PS4 at PlayStation Store on March 13, 2018 for $14.99 USD. If you’re looking for a new shooter, check this one out!

Looks great! Will there be a launch discount? I see on Xbone there’s a preorder available at a discounted rate.

    A bit of trouble with the official login, so pardon me using my personal account. Yes, expect to see a launch discount on PS4 as well.

Looking forward to playing this next week. Had to resist getting on Steam earlier because I prefer such games on my PS4. The option to play with local co-op is just more convenient on PS4 for me.

    We do get a certain amount of requests for physical copies. It’s… Interesting, and something we really should look into in detail sometime soon. No guarantees, but we’ll certainly explore our options.

    Awesome, thank you! There are a few companies that do limited physical releases of digital-only/limited games and it would be awesome to see some 10tons games come out on disc!

    Great minds think alike, am I right? Can’t lie, it was a clear “Heureka!” moment for us when we realized what the game and the title would be. Even the promoart practically drew itself, the title paints such a strong mental image.

    Tesla’s times were such a golden age of science, wasn’t it? Science overall had gotten so far to be really capable, but so much of the “low hanging fruit” of discoveries hadn’t been made yet. Not to belittle the work or brilliance of scientists of the time, nor the work, brilliance, or discoveries of scientists since, though. Amazing stuff is being discovered all the time. But, like, how exciting has the early work with electricity been? There’s been faces to see when the first Tesla coil fired up.

Just wanted to say to y’all at 10ton that the difficulty of Surival on Sparkle Unleashed is ridiculous and frustrating since your skills do not matter.Am very disappointed with that game.

On-topic…the game does look cool,good idea there.
