Turbo Overkill

Publisher Apogee Entertainment and developer Trigger Happy Interactive – the creator of the Doom II mod Total Chaos – today confirmed that Turbo Overkill is in development for Switch. The project is scheduled to launch in 2022.

Here’s an overview of the game:

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. Turbo Overkill takes over-the-top to never-before-reached heights. Activate Hero Time, a new form of slow motion with a twist. Build incredible speed by wall-running and dashing. Slide on your chainsaw leg, eviscerating foes and opening up bosses for critical damage, and go car-surfing—yes, riding on the hoods of flying cars. Blast away with the Twin Magnums, which lock-on and instagib several foes, the Boomer Shotgun and its attached grenade launcher, or the Telefragger sniper rifle, which teleports Johnny inside an enemy before they explode from within. The FPS genre is about to get really wild and really fun again.

Race through two dozen stages packed with secrets, bonus arena stages, and white-knuckle combat puzzles. Find game-changing collectibles to unlock punishing modifiers like triple-monster-speed and insta-kill. Combine all of Johnny’s weapons and powers to outsmart, outgun, and outrun the corrupted legions.

We have a trailer for Turbo Overkill below.

Trigger Happy Interactive’s Sam Prebble says Turbo Overkill “is the game we’ve always wanted to play; making it is a dream project.” Players will “feel right at home” if they enjoy Quake III Arena, modern and classic Doom, or Apogee’s first-person shooters.

Apogee founder Scott Miller adds that “Turbo Overkill is a sandbox of fun and original gameplay ideas that come together like a night of melty hot pizza and your favorite cold, frothy brew. Playing this game made me a Turbo Lover all over again.”
