That sound? It's the TurboGrafx-16 rising from its grave...

Fourteen years after it was discontinued in the U.S., the the TurboGrafx-16 is getting a new game. Unfortunately, it isn't Bonk RPG; it's a Berserk clone called Insanity. Here's a video that shows a bit of what it has to offer:

Although the title is a homebrew release, the folks behind it (a small team of programmers, artists and musicians that call themselves Aetherbyte Studios) haven't cut any corners. Insanity's $30 price of admission gets you a professionally packaged game that reportedly resembles the TTi-branded Turbo games that came out in the 90s.

As much as Insanity's release tickles me, I probably won't be buying it anytime soon. It looks a little too primitive to my eyes--plus, I've never been a big fan of this type game.
