Turn Me Up Games

When Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 was announced for Switch, Activision said that Vicarious Visions was behind the port. However, it turns out that another company actually did most of the heavy lifting.

Turn Me Up Games recently confirmed that it handled the Switch version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2. The company has plenty of porting experience having previously worked on Borderlands 1 and 2, Journey to the Savage Planet, and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons for the console.

Until recently, the Borderlands series had never graced a Nintendo platform. That finally changed at the very end of May with Borderlands Legendary Collection. With that release, most of the franchise is now on Switch. Turn Me Up Games was heavily involved having worked on the ports of the first Borderlands as well as Borderlands 2.

We’ve caught up with Turn Me Up to discuss bringing these classic titles over to Nintendo’s console. Producer Louis Polak and executive producer Scott Cromie were able to share insight into its partnership with 2K and what it was like porting Borderlands 1 and 2 to Switch.

When you think about developers that have worked on notable Switch ports, the likes of Panic Button, Virtuos, and Saber Interactive come to mind. We should probably throw another name into the mix as well: Turn Me Up Games.

Although Turn Me Up hasn’t worked on a ton of Switch projects, the studio is starting to become more well-known. The company’s first project on Nintendo’s console was Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Then at the end of May, Turn Me Up’s ports of Borderlands 1 and 2 landed on Switch.
