The Future of Turrican - 30 years of Turrican
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!
They won´t tell more at the moment, but Chris stated that it will be something beautiful.

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.
