What would you do if you find that everyone in your city has been turned into violent half-cybernetic war machines, bent on taking over the world for a malicious artificial intelligence called Syn? As a cyborg with a chainsaw hidden in your leg and missile launchers up your sleeves, you’ll fight your way through the streets and take back the city. Blasting your way through hordes of enemies to put an end to the AI’s plans once and for all! 

Turbo Overkill is simply a love letter to the 90s. It’s a first-person shooter that mimics what computers were capable of back in the early days of 3D accelerator cards while adding some modern touches like reflections and proper environmental lighting.

6 Sep

TURBO OVERKILL - Gameplay Reveal - YouTube Turbo Overkill, the ultraviolent cyberpunk FPS from the creator of award-winning DOOM II mod Total Chaos and published by Apogee Entertainment, promises to paint Paradise blood red in 2022. This game will be delivered on Steam, GOG, and Epic Games Store for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One.

The trailer drop last week looks great! It shows a very fluid game as a player navigates through a neon city like the character is from Promare and delivers lots of carnage. In what isn’t revealing is in how Fifth Element the whole game feels. yes, players can jack cars in a race around the city to kill opponents and perhaps even blow up the digital web! But for good ol’ fashioned gun play, the smooth frame rates being teased at says it all.

From the Press Release:

Rev up the savage chainsaw leg and start chopping as Johnny Turbo, a mercenary returning to clean-up his crime-ridden hometown of 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.
