With a name like Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion, there was only one thing we could ever do with this game. PLAY IT ONE!
Oh, and avoid paying our taxes (of course).
Launched in April 2021, this action-adventure romp is cutesy good fun and has its tongue very firmly in its turnip.
Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion (play for all your tax evading needs)
From indie team Snoozy Kazoo in West Springfield, Massachusetts, here we have a game packed full of biting humour.
You take control of a turnip.
That little guy is a menace to society. He’s been evicted from his home for tax evasion and various other misdemeanours.
Now you’ve got a huge debt to pay back to the devious Mayor Onion and it’s your job to unearth the corrupt veggie government once and for all!
And that’s all whilst you, the turnip, run around being a bit of a scrounger in general. Kind of the aim of the game. Behold!
Yeah, so there’s basic puzzle solving and battle elements to get through. That’s all good fun, if basic fair.
As you play along, you commit petty crimes (mainly to do with fundamental tax fraud etc.), and enjoy all the cutesy fun and games.
Naturally, the game works so well thanks to the mix of standard action-adventure fun… just with it all set alongside this brilliant concept.
Cute turnip? Check! Action-adventure jaunt? Check! Tax evasion? Check!
At only around two hours of gameplay, it’s not the biggest game of all time (of course). But it’s one of the few we can think of that revels in avoiding paying taxes.
And wouldn’t you know? There’s a great little soundtrack to go along with proceedings. Helps keep your mind on your goal whilst you play, you know? As in, to keep one eye on evading taxes!
All good fun, then, we enjoyed the game’s cheeky sense of fun over the two-hour gameplay run. Which is good. And that’s better than bad.
But this one is just a little bit different. And why?
Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion is the greatest video game name we have ever seen! It makes us laugh. It makes us guffaw. And it makes us happy. And that alone makes us want to go forth and evade our taxes!
Whoever said video games are bad for impressionable minds?!
