German publisher Strictly Limited Games announces they want to rock you like a
turrican, saying they will plan to announce a new Turrican
gamescom, reviving this platformer that debuted on the Commodore 64 back in
1990. This even involves the original developers to some degree, as they say
it's in the works at Factor 5. Here's the
Turrican entry on Wikipedia
for historical reference, and here's early word, which says they will open
preorders after the official unveiling:
After three decades in dormancy,
we welcome the return of a true legend. Developed by one of Europe's greatest
independent studios of all time, Factor 5's Turrican series became one of the
most acclaimed and well regarded video games of all time shortly after its
release in 1990.
Now, teaming up with the original development team, Strictly Limited Games is
excited to bring back this legendary IP.
On Thursday, August 27th an exclusive trailer and more about the special 30th
birthday edition will be revealed at the gamescom Opening Night Live (20:00 -
21:30 CEST / 11:00 - 12:30 PST). After the reveal, we will celebrate the 30th
birthday of Turrican by opening the preorders of the exclusive and limited
editions - only available at strictlylimitedgames.com.
