Chris Huelsbeck Productions proudly presents:


Featuring a cosmic hero in a silver battlesuit, the »Turrican« series of games brought nonstop action to all gaming systems of the 80’s and 90’s (this includes C64 and Amiga, Atari ST and PC, as well as Genesis and Super Nintendo)! Chris Huelsbeck created the beautiful synthesizer scores for these games, and he is an immensely popular game music composer with a long history of creating exciting and memorable melodies. Huelsbeck’s soundtracks played a major role in shaping »Turrican« into a digital legend over the years, and many players have never forgotten the magic found in this music.

We are proud to present to you the »Turrican Soundtrack Anthology«, a very ambitious and comprehensive music album project that has created updated versions of nearly all music from the »Turrican« series! The realization of this massive dream was funded and made possible by the support of fans using the Kickstarter crowd-funding platform--the campaign was by all accounts a huge success! The backers and fans are marveling at how great the music sounds, and we are pleased to be offering the complete soundtrack in digital form to anyone who missed the campaign but would like to hear and own this collection of music history...

TSA is everything I wanted it to be. The music is just unbelievable. I can’t get enough playing it with outstanding tracks like Outpost, The Final Fight, Shoot or Die and many many others. I absolutely love it!

...the entire collection is solid gold. There’s not a single bad track across all four discs. It’s a true testament to Hülsbeck’s skills as a composer.
