Rotterdam, The Netherlands – December 3, 2019 – Today SOEDESCO and Rain Games celebrate the release of the 2D puzzle platformer Teslagrad 5 years ago. On December 3, 2014, the Dutch game publisher released the physical edition of the game. Teslagrad is the first published game of SOEDESCO.

From physical edition to value pack

SOEDESCO and Rain Games also launched the physical edition of the game on Wii U™, Nintendo Switch™ and PlayStation®Vita. This year, SOEDESCO and Rain Games teamed up again to bring a value pack of the steampunk inspired platformer to Nintendo Switch™ and PlayStation®Vita.
Peter W. Meldahl, CEO of Rain Games, is very pleased with the partnership with SOEDESCO. “The last 5 years were very productive. We’ve done several projects together and we’ve both grown a lot since then. The value pack definitely is the icing on the cake for the Teslagrad fans out there”. Hans van Brakel, Executive Manager at SOEDESCO, comments: “time flies when you’re having fun. We’ve had a fruitful collaboration in the past and look forward to the future. The fact that we’re still working on this title after 5 years shows it’s a great, timeless game”.
