Meet the Team: Ethan 🍉

February 28th, 2024 at 02:00 pm EST

To celebrate the launch of Turnip Boy Robs a Bank, we’ve decided to interview each team member! You can now feel like you REALLY know these people from these vague questions and our beautiful cycle of para-social relationships can continue! All kidding aside, the game wouldn’t be what it is without everyone on the team. We will be posting these every so often to give a little love to those that make snoozy games what they are!

Describe what you do on the team!

I’m the studio’s lead pixel artist! In other words, I’m that guy who mashes a bunch of blocks together, arranges them into a Turnip Boy looking thing, animates it a little, passes it off to Carson, and calls it a day.

What was your favorite part of development?

Watching it all come together tbh. I’ve loved making pretty much every asset for the game, even the ones I was dreading going into them, but seeing all that hard work in game and being brought to life is just incredible… Also PAX East. PAX was some of the most fun I’ve had in my life tbh.

What was the most challenging part of development?

Making Turnip Boy himself actually… or more accurately, Turnip Boy’s portrait. He’s gone through a couple redesigns based on Jen’s rendition of the character in promo art, and there was a TON of back-and-forth to make him look as close to perfect as possible. It was pretty dang tedious, but the final result was more than worth it!

What’s your favorite food?

Bit of an odd one, but Gnocchi Genovese! It’s basically lil’ balls of potato mixed with pesto, grilled chicken, garlic, and parmesan cheese, and it’s heckin’ incredible lol.

What’s your favorite game?

I bet you’d be expecting me to say Rivals of Aether, but it’s actually Cuphead! Everything about that game is just so me-pilled it’s insane.

What bop are you listening to right now?

Listening to a lot of the Jet Set Radio OST recently! Hideki Naganuma doesn’t miss lmao.

Do you have any pets?

I have two cute puppers named Hunter and Chewie! They’re really good boys :D

Who’s your favorite Turnip Boy character and why?

RAT FRIEND!! Rat Friend best friend. He just wants to be a rat, and he’s so excited about it, and I love him for it.

Ravioli or Pierogi?


Where can people find your stuff?

I spend a lot of my time on Twitter rn, so definitely gimme a follow there!
