Glückwunsch, bei mir weiterhin nichts. Hatte ja Teillieferung, vielleicht liegt es daran.

Nach allem, was bei Strictly Limited so passiert ist, kann man schon mal ein schlechtes Gefühl haben. Aber ich habe nun eine Versandbestätigung, das gibt doch ausnahmsweise mal ein gutes Gefühl.

Und jetzt hätte ich mal gern Gründe gehabt, warum die Figur nichts wird.

In the german podcast "Spieleveteranen", Chris Hülsbeck, Holger Schmidt, Julian Eggebrecht and Thomas Engel announced, that now that Turrican is having his 30. anniversary, this year at the digital version of the Gamescom, they´ll most probably reveal something related to the future of Turrican!

Broken Core
Already from 2017 but new to me: The author claims it´s like Turrican or Megaman. With Tits (no, really ;).

"Broken core is a PC Windows indie videogame developed by Oscar Celestini. It's a new game with retrogame taste. Do you loved Turrican or Megaman? Add tits and that's it! Playing the Story mode you'll see lots of illustrations between stages. "

Free demo: here

Check out Cryogear, a retro themed Metroidvania with some rough similarities to Turrican. Available for Xbox One, Steam and Nintendo Switch.

thx @ Retro Etro
Some years ago Zarlex started a T2002-based Turrican-Prequel named "Tallon", featuring the Hero Devolon, mentioned in the Turrican 1 backstory.

Sadly, he hasn´t time to finish it anymore, therefore he packed the project together and added a 12-page manual for everyone who wants to finish it.

Get it here!
