Well, here's one story I didn't expect I'd ever be covering. Canadian developer Outerminds has announced it is currently hard at work on a video game adaptation of over-the-top action movie Turbo Kid, set for release some seven years after the movie's premiere.
For those less inclined, Turbo Kid was a low-budget Canadian flick produced during a movie-making zeitgeist which saw an abundance of "'80s grindhouse movies" that - while capturing the spirit of the era - weren't really like '80s grindhouse movies. Set in the post-apocalyptic future of 1997, Turbo Kid is the story of an orphaned BMX bandit - The Kid - who battles the armies of warlord Zeus (Michael Ironside) in order to liberate the wasteland and save the (extremely excitable) gal of his dreams, Apple.
Well, It's a bit like TimeRider: The Adventures of Lyle Swann, I guess.
