Hurrican for Linux
Hurrican seems to run fine under linux using the windows-emulator "Cedega", after the release the Pokes will also test other emulators.
And there are awesome new screenshots of the spider-factory-level at http://www.poke53280.de.
At www.pouet.net you can find a nice Retro-Musicdisc by Tristar, which is actually a windows executeable with a nice Turrican 1-style interface that plays 6 Turrrican 2 music tracks. Thanks to Gajin for the link!
When Dreams come true...
Just if you think it can´t get better anymore:
Download the new Hurrican Surprise Video at www.poke53280.de and be surprised about a new, very special, feature you ever dreamed of!
Unbelievable but true:
Cypherians Systems got released!
I only had time for a quick look, but it seems to feature real good music, nice gfx and parallax-backgrounds.
But keep in mind, it´s still a beta version and has some bugs, e.g. sometimes shots are not visible, and it runs quite a good bit too fast on my 2,4Ghz Celeron.
Download it at http://www.geocities.com/banq_it.
New Eiswuxe Songs
Just uploaded a new Song by Eiswuxe to the Soundbase, "Hurrican Preview" and replaced "Freedom" with the final, longer Version.
The promised Preview Video of Hurrican can now be downloaded at www.poke53280.de!
Thanks to Captain Commando we now have complete recordings of Mega Turrican, Gameboy Turrican, Genesis Turrican and Universal Soldier in the Soundbase , directly recorded from the real console-systems.
Also there are new Songs from Ralph Weinert and Alexander Prievert.

I can´t stand waiting ;)
Upcoming T2002-Levelset by Christian
Christian is working on a new levelset for T2002, and now he released a preview video.
It looks and sounds really great, he used e.g. tileset of Lionheart, Ruff and Tumble or music from Wolfchild.
Just watching his new waterfalls is worth the download.
It is encoded with the Divx-Codec 5.2.
A new Turrican for mobile Phones
While visting the Games Convention 2005 in Leipzig, I was quite surprised to find a new Turrican.
Again it´s a Java application for Cellphones, but this time it´s far more playable then the one on the Siemens-M65.
And it even has got a flight-level.
Get screenshots here!
New mp3 by mAF
mAF contributet a nice remake of "The desert rocks", geht it at the Soundbase.
The Lava Level is finished, get some shots at http://www.poke53280.de/news/.
And have a good last look at the Hurrican Sprite - because it will be replaced by a new and better looking one.
You´ll have to wait a bit longer than usual for the next news there, but they promised a Video, that shows actual gameplay of the finished Levels.
New mp3 by Sebuko
Subuko contributet another tune, this time an orchestral one: Revolution. I guess it would make a real good intro-tune.
Now available at the Turrican Soundbase.
Turrican performed at GC-Cup: Warm-up
At 13.07.2005, 13.00, a track of Turrican is performed by an orchestra, live in Leipzig at the GC-Cup: Warm-up.
Entry is free, and other great tracks like Final Fantasy are also performed - so if anybody lives near Leipzig: go there!
I wonder if any local TV- or Radio-Station will send this, because I guess like at the last two GC-Opening Concerts there will be no recording or CD available.
More infos here.
Manfred Trenz Interview (Powerplay)
Gerald M.B. sent me a scanned interview from the old german magazine Powerplay with Manfred Trenz, you can view it here.
Christian contributed a great Tutorial for the T2002-Editor, with many pictures and 16 pages!
Get it here, or at the Bonusfiles.
If anyone has some spare time left: it´s in german - a translation would be quite usefull ;)
New mp3 by Sebuko
A new tune, City of Gods, from Sebuko is now available at the Turrican Soundbase. It´s also thought for his Turrican-Clone Hideican.
t4e is dead - long live t4e
The Turricane 4 Ever-Project is now officially dead, after sleeping for about 3 years.
But since it was one of the most famous remakes - which sadly didn´t get out of the concept state, I archived parts of the old Website here.
If you want to meet Eiswuxe and Turri of the Pokes, and maybe even Robert and Martin Konrad, come to the Dusmania 7.0 at Rodgau Nieder-Roden (near Frankfurt/Main) at 02.07.05.
There you might even have a look at the current state of Hurrican and many other hobby-developed games.
And last year I even met Peter Thierolf (ex-Member of Kaiko, programmer of Turrican 3, and member of NEON, see makers for more info.
New Hurrican Shots
And another one done: the Elevator-Level is finished, get some screenshots, as usual at the Poke´s Homepage. Now they are already working at the "center of the earth"-Level.
