Now, you’ll be able to guide the Kid through his adventures.

TURBO KID, described as a “postapocalyptic metroidvania,” is coming from developer Outerminds, in collaboration with RKSS Films (creators of the TURBO KID movie), the band Le Matos and producer EMA Films. According to the first announcement, “The game takes place in the distant future of 1997, where The Kid must fend for himself as he crosses the wasteland in search of a friend. In keeping with the movie, the game will feature sprawling and diverse environments, comically over-the-top gore, a heartwarming story and cool BMX tricks, all wrapped up in a throwback package.”

The game is set for release in 2022. Check out the first teaser below, and for more info, head over to the official website, Facebook page and Discord,  and follow it on Instagram and Twitter @turbokidgame.
