Have a close look at http://www.textlab.de/index.php/textlab/article/58/ for an old Episode of "Ragazzi", which includes some insight on Rainbow Arts, including Chris Huelsbeck at work.

I mailed textlabs if they could provide us a video in better quality.

Thanks to Gerald Müller-Bruhnke, webmaster of the fantastic Thalion Source for the hint!

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!

Chris Huelsbeck Radio Report

Factor 5 Interview
Julian Eggebrecht again mentioned Turrican in an Interview with gameplayer:

We are going back to the roots as well as stepping into 3D. With PlayStation Network and Virtual Console on the Wii there are many ways to get back into the retro aspect. At the same time there will be a big 3D newly envisioned ‘Turrican’ that hopefully the fans of the original can and will embrace as well as new fans.

I´m still sceptical if it will result in more then Thornado, but let´s wait and see.

Thanks to Alexander Wilke for the tip!
Poke Interview
Planet Freeplay had an interview with Poke53280 about Hurrican, read it here.
