The date and the author of the "DarkCave" level in the Levelbase are wrong. The correct are: date 08/09/2003, author Metalmorphosis (according to the readme file).

Two thumbs up :)

Retro Magazin
The Retro-Magazin 12/04 features an Interview mit Manfred Trenz and includes questions (and answers) like if he has some unfinished Turricans in his drawers, or what he thinks about all the people still asking him about Turrican.

Nothing groundbreaking new, but fun to read.

Turrican Shirt Remake
Since the official Turrican Shirt isn´t for sale anymore, I remade the shirt´s motive. Sounds easy - but it was some hours of work, because the Turrican 1 Cover picture is nearly not to be found completly. So I´ve puzzled it together from 4 different covers and the poster.

Get it here or at the bonusfiles and print it on a shirt at your local copyshop, or e.g. at http://www.spreadshirt.de/.

And: the first one who mails me a picture of himself wearing the (new) shirt gets a picture in the news ;)

Ruff n Tumble T2002 Level
C.Werdehausen just mailed be a new Level for T2002. It features new enemies and a great tileset from Ruff´n´Tumble. Also included are four mp3s, two from Ruff, and two C64 tunes.

Get it, as usual, at the T2002-Levels and write plenty of comments.

New Hurrican Shots!
At poke53280.de, there are some new shots of Hurrican, even one of the new, dark, fleshy Alien-Level.

The water has been completly replaced, it´s now animated and has tiny waves. Also new is the ability to shoot diagonally and up.

And Eiswuxe was quite upset, that some fans said Hurrican would be dead - it is not, not a bit. He explained the lack of new pictures and news with not wanting to spoil every great new feature, and right now it´s beeing worked more then ever on Hurrican.

T2002 GBA

Why there are no new official Turricans
While researching the case of trademarks around katakis/denaris, we noticed something that may be the cause why neither Factor 5, nor THQ release a new Turrican:

THQ owns the trademark "Turrican" in germany (where turrican is most known) and Factor 5 owns it for the USA and the rest of Europe. And releasing it only for one part of the world wouldn´t be profitable enough I guess.
This at least explains, why THQ once answered me the question about creating a new Turrican with "Surely this would be a possibility, but since as well economic as license-rightly interests have to be considered, it isn´t quite as easy as you maybe imagine."

Added to the facts.

You can read it yourself at https://dpinfo.dpma.de and http://www.uspto.gov/.

Windstille Forum
Ingo Ruhnke´s Turrican-inspired game Windstille now has an own forum where you can post suggestions and feedback.

Please welcome MySQL :)
The news are now powered by mysql (formerly a plain html include, shame on me ;)

You´ll only notice this by the new navigation at the bottom of the news-page, the new seperation for each newsitem and more news - because it´s easier for me to write them now.

As soon as there are more news in the database (I´m too lazy to convert all old ones) I´ll also include a search form.

New T2002 Levels
Tony Bates heavily expanded his technodungeon and Z-out-Levels for T2002 and also sent me two new ones (demontrain & Mr. Walkers Factory).

I left the old versions online, if someone prefers smaller levels.

Get it at the T2002-Levels as usual.

Amiga Plus
In Issue 11/2004, the german print-mag Amiga Plus, features a 4-site Turrican Article, including quite interesting interviews with Frank Matzke and Chris Hülsbeck. By the way: the article was written by Jan Zottmann, who is working at Synsoniq and brought us the great Immortal 2 CD (including 2 Hülsbeck Tracks).
(and they used screenshots from my site 1:1, without giving a link...well, at least it´s kind of an honor to be present in this mag ;)

Apocalypse 3000
Beside the cruel name, Apocalypse 3000 looks like Mega Turrican - for Handys, in Java!
Rumours say, it at least plays better then the official Turrican for Siemens Handys. I can´t spot the THQ-logo anywhere, but it´s developer, Ojom, already published Denaris at THQ.

I´ll try to test it soon.

Denaris and Katakis trademark
Shortly after Manfred Trenz announced he´d develop a new Katakis for several Systems, Factor 5 registered the trademarks Katakis and Denaris in the US (at October 22, 2004).
Now, at 03.11.2004, there was a news at Manfred´s Denaris Software:
"Katakis 2 will be developed by Denaris Entertainment Software and Smash Designs only. No other developers are involved in any way. Any information stating this is wrong."

Windstille
Some more screenshots of the hero and some more sketches of the scenery at the Windstille Homepage.

The Master´s Homepage
Manfred "the Master" Trenz, the creator of Turrican, now has two homepages (beside RAM-Brands great Manfred Trenz Fanpage):
http://www.denarisoftware.de
http://www.targamt.de/( <---Targa was another name for his game "Rendering Ranger" + MT ;)

Denarisoftware will be developing a new Katakis if everything goes right!

SETA News
Thanks to Carlo Savorelli, once again, there´s a new game in the SETA: Alisia Dragoon. It looks and plays nicely, the only thing I personally don´t like is that the enemies respawn quite fast.

T2002-Level-Contest
With two brand new and interesting T2002-Levels (bigworld.exe by Christian Werdehausen and T-Rmx.exe by Psykko666) I declare the T2002 Level-Contest for opened. You have still time until end of the year to do some great levels and send them to webmaster@nemmelheim.de, everything is allowed as long as it runs with T2002, so best make or get some new tilesets.

A special site and of course a voting-highscore will follow until then. Btw, Tutorials and FAQs on how to make T2002 Levels are still very welcome.
