[Update]: Turbo Overkill's Version 1.0 has now arrived, and as I've detailed throughout my review, it's a ton of fun!

If you're like me and you were looking forward to blasting all sorts of fleshy abominations in Turbo Overkill's long-awaited final chapter, I'm afraid I have some bad news to deliver. According to the latest developer update, Turbo Overkill's full release has been postponed for a couple of weeks in order to polish things up just a bit more. The new launch date has now been set for August 11th.

“In short, the game is complete from start to finish,” reads the brief announcement. “We technically could release now, but we felt we need a little more time to resolve a lot of other things. We are not 100% there with some of the optimization and level flow. The multiplayer suite is still a little rusty (needs more options) and the amount of bugs I've encountered in the campaign I feel are a little much.”

That said, there is a bit of positive news in the announcement as well. Apparently the final three levels are both "fucking epic" and extremely long, so I have a feeling it'll all be worth the wait in the end!

The last thing worth mentioning is that Turbo Overkill's price tag will be increasing to $25 once it officially launches. So if you're looking to save a couple of bucks, or just smash your way through the currently available levels, grabbing it before August 11th would a pretty good idea.

Either way, I'll make sure to let you know once Turbo Overkill finally arrives. Until then, you can read a few more tidbits about it, or even check out the demo, over at Steam.
