Gunlord Indigogo campaign cancelled
Sadly the Indigogo-Campaign to fund porting Gunlord to PC, 3DS and WiiU was cancelled prematurely after reaching only ~6.000 of the needed 40.000 EUR.

Browser Turrican Awesomeness
Robert, webmaster of turricanforever and teacher of Mädcheninformatik at a university, startet to implement a Turrican-Game playable in html5-Browsers.
"Hyper Turrican Mega Leet 5 (abbr. HTML5) is a little experiment of mine to run T2002 levels in the browser. It's programmed in haXe using a game engine I originally implemented for teaching university courses in media computer-science (in German Mädcheninformatik, I think there is no real English translation for that). I also cheat a little by looking at some C++ code of an earlier effort to reimplement T2002 which I never finished. It runs in HTML5, Flash and natively in just about anything but right now I'm mainly interested in checking out if pure browser tech can handle the game. Currently have no idea how far and how fast (or slow) this will go. I'll use this thread as a change log. The current version is always available at http://player.robdangero.us.
Playtest here: http://player.robdangero.us

The Lost Super-Turrican Level
As stated on factor5.com, to fit on the cartridge several features and a whole level were cut from the final game.
Quote from http://www.factor5.de/secrets_super_turrican.shtml:
"On a final note about Super Turrican, if you look at the Enemy Gallery in the game manual that can be brought up by pushing the home button on the Wii-Remote, there are several nasty critters in there that you won't find in this official retail version of Super Turrican due to memory constraints. We were told to deliver the game in 4 Mbit (512 KByte), the smallest size cartridge available at the time, after finishing it as a 6 MBit title. Not only did we have to cut bits of art in several places, but also a full stage and a feature of the new Beam weapon: Not only could it freeze enemies, but also melt frozen ones, something that the player had to discover in the Ice World and that led into a stage set on a Robot Transport hurtling through the clouds. But it wouldn't fit - and thus, somewhere, on a forgotten floppy disk, there still might exist the original Super Turrican - Director's Cut."
