We're not going to lie, not much sounds more badass than Tesla facing off against Lovecraft ... I mean, could you imagine how epic that would be? Technically now you don't have to because there is a game about exactly that and now it's officially coming to the Xbox One platform!
Appropriately named Tesla vs Lovecraft, the game has already been released on Steam and to pretty phenomenal reviews. So what's this game about ... other than being a cacophony of badassery, we mean?
According to the game's official description:
Tesla vs Lovecraft is an intense top-down twin stick arena shooter from the creators of Crimsonland and Neon Chrome. Play as the enigmatic inventor Nikola Tesla harnessing the static energy to power up Tesla-Mech and give the lovecraftian nightmares a lesson in horror!
You are Nikola Tesla, world-famous inventor and genius extraordinaire. At the eve of your greatest invention, your laboratory is burned down by the horror author H.P. Lovecraft, who claims that your actions have put the world in peril. With the help of his occult book, and a vast army of monsters, he has stolen your most precious inventions!
Tesla-Mech, an immensely powerful machine of war at your disposal. Mow down your opponents with twin-mounted Tesla-Miniguns, and trample over monsters like they were ants.
Quantum Teleportation, packed neatly into one handy portable backpack. (Includes a warning label about Theseus-paradox, whatever that is)0comments
If nightmares had nightmares, this is what they’d look like. Monsters so horrible they’ll make you eat up your own sanity! Save the world with a plethora of inventions and gadgets, including (but not limited to) X-Ray Blade and Death Ray Gun.
The game is still slated for a PlayStation 4 release as well, but so far all we have details on is the Xbox One release. For those that are currently playing on the Microsoft platform, Tesla vs Lovecraft will be bringing its horrors to its new Xbox One home on March 16th for $14.99! If you happen to be playing it on PC, the game is now available on Steam for the exact same price. Happy gaming!
