A Deep Dive into Turrican Oddities
Luna Morley extensively reviewed some of the more obscure Turrican Versions and spinoffs and even bought an Siemens M65 phone for that. Did anyone else really play that through, I mean, seriously? :)

And if anyone has insights on the making of "Apocalypse 3000", please let us all know!

"Last year, we covered the Amiga games, console sequels by Factor 5, and the recent collections for modern consoles. Now let's cover...everything else. Get strapped in because there's a lot to go through and things might get weird."

New Huelsbeck Albums
Chris Huelsbeck has released two new albums:

Tiny Thor
Dressed to Chill

The Tiny Thor soundtrack contains some nice reminiscences to Turrican and Giana Sisters (and other things I might have overheard), see if you can spot them, too ;).
If you haven´t seen Tiny Thor yet, check it out, it´s a retro themed jump´n´run with graphics made by Henk Nieborg and was created by Jochen Heizmann, which also was active in the amiga scene.

Turrican Cosplay by Ravenlordess
A while ago I contacted cosplayer Ravenlordess, which does some amazing Turrican cosplay, if she could send me some pictures so I could add them to the bonusfiles.

So she did and after sleeping on my harddrive for I year I finally managed to put together a new subpage, including a short chat, enjoy!
Especially check out the video at the bottom!

A third Turrican suit is in the making, so please support and motivate her at the platform of your choice.

Atmosphere Album Crowdfunding Campaign by Kordian Więcek
Kordian, who brought you the epic Dueling Pianos: Turrican Piano-Arrangement, has a croundfunding-campaign for a (not Turrican-related) Piano-CD:

"After long work and 2 albums I'm starting a crowdfunding campaign to produce an album with my songs. The videos I uploaded earlier pretty much reflect my taste in music, however this is not a classical music album. I would like the whole thing as an ambient music with different influences, e.g. describe Japanese composers. You will find a lot of information on the Startnext campaign, otherwise post your questions.

I would appreciate your support so that we can join this musical journey together. Only digital download for international backers"

Sounds wonderful so far, plus the album gehts mastered by Markus Kludzuweit, who also made the "The Settlers"-Amiga-soundtrack, which is surprisingly complex and also got covered by Kordian.

But hurry, only 6 days left to give a fellow turrican fan some support! Please help spread the word ;).

PS: is it just me or are the strings in the background somehow disharmonic @ 02:15? Great remix, as always from gibs, however :)
