Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion--the most interesting game title announced this year--has been announced by the strange individuals at Graffiti Games and Snoozy Kazooo. The players will play as the titular Turnip Boy, who is described as an "adorable yet troublemaking turnip."
Players will be an absolute menace to society in Turnip Boy, who has been evicted from his home after failing to pay his taxes. Now homeless, Turnip Boy embarks on an epic quest to pay off his debts to Mayor Onion. Garden tools will be used to solve puzzles, meet different and eccentric vegetables and fruits, and fight with. Turnip Boy will also discover the reason to why the garden community is becoming spoiled and begin a revolution of sorts to take down the corrupt vegetable government. Vive la révolution, I guess.
"Like many games, Turnip Boy was prototyped during a 48-hour game jam, where I quickly fell in love with the character and the world I began to create,” said Yukon Wainczak, developer at Snoozy Kazoo. “After building a prototype and brainstorming with Jennifer Kindl, Turnip Boy became an eccentric game filled with humor and tax evasion. Ever since then, we've been building the game for a full release. We want people to dive into the game’s charming and kooky world. That being said, don't let the game's cuteness fool you, as everything in the world isn't exactly what it seems."
