If you’re craving more action inspired by old-school 3D shooters such as Duke Nukem, DOOM and Quake, then keep an eye out for Trigger Happy Interactive’s upcoming release Turbo Overkill – a “brutal cyberpunk FPS” coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2022.
This ultraviolent cyberpunk FPS is from the creator of the award-winning DOOM II conversion mod Total Chaos. 3D Realms co-founder Scott Miller – the pioneer behind Duke Nukem, Wolfenstein 3D and a number of other classics – will also offer creative support.
“As the guy who helped launch the shooter genre with Wolfenstein 3D, Rise of the Triad, Duke Nukem 3D, Max Payne, and Prey, I haven’t been this excited about an FPS since the golden era of Apogee/3D Realms”
As the player, you’ll take control of a mercenary named Johnny Turbo who must clean up his crime-ridden hometown known as “Paradise”.
“In this Blade Runner-meets-DOOM hellscape, Johnny finds the city’s entire population possessed by Syn, a rogue AI, and its army of augmented minions. Desperate for enough money to outrun his past mistakes, Johnny takes on the impossible job of destroying the greatest AI ever created. Rival bounty hunters want to claim the prize first… nothing is easy in paradise.”
Turbo Overkill also has a number of unique features such as a “Hero Time” – described as a new form of slow-motion with a twist, and the protagonist has a chainsaw leg! Players will take advantage of all of this as they work their way through two dozen stages filled with secrets, bonus arena stages, action-packed combat and puzzles.
