Game Info

Turnip Boy is ready to commit more felonies in this comedic action-adventure game with roguelite elements. This time the career criminal is teaming up with the fearsome Pickled Gang to plan and execute the weirdest heist of all time! Shake down hostages, steal precious valuables, and explore the deep, dark depths and history of the Botanical Bank.

I am the lead programmer on this project (outside of porting), and built the framework that it’s using within GameMaker called CarsonEngine. For the first year and a half of development I was the sole developer, developing all core systems of the game including the main game loop, character movement, weapons, each of the game’s menus, ect. I also helped design and shape the game’s story, characters, and writing along with everyone else on the team (it was a very collaborative process!).

I spent a lot of time and effort into making sure this game was exactly as the team envisioned given our size and abilities. I’m very proud of the work we’ve done and the amount of polish we’ve been able to achieve. The game has been very well received and I couldn’t be happier :)
