[prMac.com] West Jordan, Utah - iCOOLgeeks today is thrilled to announce the release of Tesla's Electric Mist 1.0, their new point and click adventure game developed for iOS. Tesla's Electric Mist is a classic point and click adventure game revolving around the mysterious Nikola Tesla, a time traveling device he invented, and a big experiment gone wrong for the citizens of Colorado Springs in 1899. The elegant graphics of the game really bring the creative puzzles and story to life. Search for clues and solve the puzzles as the imaginative story unfolds.
"Nikola Tesla has always been a favorite of mine, and with the air of mystery surrounding his life and inventions, he made a wonderful character to base our story around." said Tyler Parsons, Owner of iCOOLgeeks. "Tesla's one of those people from history, you've either never heard of him, which is sad, or you're somewhat infatuated with him, like I am. Although our game has some crazy things in it, like time travel and dimensional phasing; Tesla is a real historical character who arguably contributed more to technology than any other known inventor.
"We really wanted to create a world and story that you could immerse yourself in for a while as you wander the streets of Colorado Springs, or search through Tesla's work shop. It was important to us that the puzzles be fun, challenging, and that they build upon the story and lead seamlessly into the next puzzle."
In the game, you are the hero. Your family has a history with the great Nikola Tesla, inventor of the radio, alternating current, and patent holder of hundreds of electrical inventions. Your great-great-grandfather worked for Tesla in Colorado Springs around the turn of the century. A family secret has been passed down over the generations since then, that some day Tesla would need your family's help once more. What this means, no one in your family really knows. But the time has come, and you will be the one to answer the call.
Using a time traveling device invented by Tesla, you travel back in time to Colorado Springs, and only you will have it in your power to save the people of Colorado Springs, and in fact, Tesla himself, from an experiment gone terribly wrong.
