Perhaps I'm chipping in for the special edition. The strictly limited release does seem to have lots of cool features. Bye-bye 200 euro's :P

Turrican Forever
A german with the nick Brent McGuire is developing a new Turrican-Clone named Turrican Forever, based on a new self-written engine. He aims to do something inbetween T2002 and Hurrican, it will be much like the first to Turrican-parts.

Graphically he wants to use tiles from Turrican 2 PC plus some reworked sets from Turrican 1 und Turrican 3, using modern alpha-channel effects. And he wants to set a high priority on dynamic and smooth movements, which seems to have succeeded, if you have a look at the video.

The engine itself is already 95% finished, and we may expect a demo level soon!
