Tesla Force the top down shooter is out on Early Access for Windows PC, with Linux in tow. Thanks to developer 10tons Ltd, Plus the game is getting some rather Positive reviews on Steam and GOG. Not bad for an Early Access release.
Tesla Force is a rogue-lite top down shooter featuring endless procedural gameplay. The player can play as Tesla, Curie, Lovecraft or Shelley. Also, the early access release will be followed by full launch later this year. Due to stay in development for the next three months. Due to arrive sometime closer to the end of the year. Which we covered in our previous post for the game. However this time it seems we have a further Linux support confirmation for the future.
Only Windows at this point, but we’ll have a Linux version in the future.
This you already know by now. But there is no exact release date yet. And 10tons are not elaborating on native support much further. Since Tesla Force is the latest new addition to Early Access game. But definitely worth playing.
The game also works exceptionally well using Proton 5.0-9 on Linux. Which is literally be the best news we can offer for anyone eager to play now. Letting you defeat enemies with either keyboard/mouse or a controller. Depending on your background in gaming. The keyboard/mouse default is a personal preference, but your mileage may vary.

From the developer:
“So far we’ve received a lot of praise from people who tried the demo version during various online festivals. We believe the game will offer a tremendous experience for all fans of top-down shooters, Tesla and Lovecraft!”, lead developer Olli comments.
“Since this is an early access launch, we’re keeping a keen eye on player feedback in order to create the best game possible. Also, as an EA launch, not all features will be available at first. For example, player characters Lovecraft and Shelley will be available later along with more weapons. So, expect a constantly improving experience as we polish and finalize the game during the EA period.”, Olli continues.
