Turbo Shell is a fast-paced 2D platformer with a unique movement mechanic: instead of running and jumping, you push and pull yourself through a sci-fi world with the help of a special tool. The release of the final game is scheduled for 2022.
Traverse through ever more challenging levels, collect rewards – and beat your friends’ best time! The development of the Turbo Shell prototype started in 2020 and is completed in Q1 2021.
Turbo Shell introduces a unique movement mechanic that creates a new gameplay experience for players who are looking for a challenge: unlike in other platformers, the player character does not jump (which makes sense since he’s an egg. Eggs just don’t jump!) to overcome obstacles and hazards, but is instead equipped with a special tool that allows him to push himself off surfaces and walls inside a short radius - or pull towards them. The push/pull-technique is rather easy to learn and offers a very rewarding experience for players who manage to master it: after a few runs, they’ll be able to “fly” through levels with hardly ever touching the ground and excel by reaching new best times.
About Radioactive Dreams UG
Radioactive Dreams UG is a Hamburg-based, newly founded company of three game developers with a combined industry experience of almost 20 years. As colleagues and friends working together as employees of a large studio, we contributed to several released titles with our programming, game design, cinematic and product management skills before we took the leap to found our own game development company in 2020.
The idea for Turbo Shell first came up in 2012 and lay dormant for years in the brains of our programmer and Co-Founder. Now, we’re excited and highly motivated to finally get to work on it with the help of the Gamecity Hamburg prototype funding.
