Turbo Kid: Pixel-Art 80s-themed game launching soon

/ 08:47 PM March 23, 2024

MONTRÉAL, Canada–Outerminds®, a leading Indie studio based in Montréal, Canada, invites you to saddle up your BMX™ all-terrain bike, and prepare for a post-apocalyptic adventure like no other, as Turbo Kid™ rides onto PC starting April 10, 2024!

Based on the beloved cult classic superhero film from 2015, Turbo Kid is an all-new pixel art Metroidvania-style adventure, drenched in jaw-dropping graphics, outrageous weapons, bucketloads of gore, ragdoll physics, BMX bikes and cotton candy.

Set in a retro-futuristic 80s vision of 1997, gamers play as Turbo Kid, our comic-book lovin’ hero as he takes on a manipulative Preacher and his devoted disciples to free a confined Wasteland town from their theocratic rule. A nightmare vision of the 90s, Turbo Kid is set in a world where humanity has broken down, water is scarce, tyrannical warlords roam the Wasteland, and bikes are the steeds of choice for would-be saviours.


Massive worlds crammed full of surprises and danger await as you upgrade and build, blasting, slashing, running, jumping, crawling and yes, riding your way to victory, while immersing you in an original soundtrack provided by the masters of electronica, Le Matos!
