Independent game development studio Outerminds is releasing the demo version of Turbo Kid, the BMX-powered pixel-art metroidvania based on the film of the same name, on September 26 on Steam.
In Turbo Kid, you will play as The Kid, a lone warrior on a journey to cross the Wasteland in a retro-like exploration adventure featuring the over-the-top hysterical gore that made the movie so much fun.
Originally funded on Kickstarter, Turbo Kid raised up to $132k USD due to the support of 1936 backers. The video game is the sequel to the cult post-apocalyptic movie released back in 2015.
“When devising a Turbo Kid video game, we wanted to honor the essence of the film, mainly, to make a game that includes everything we love about the 80s and 90s with a modern twist”, says Guiz de Pessemier, Co-Founder at Outerminds.
Inspired by legendary run-and-gun platformers like Mega Man X, Super Metroid, and Out of this World, Turbo Kid allows you to explore the different zones and defeat bosses in the order you see fit, as you make choices that will affect the process of the game.
