We’re Hannah and Evan. We’ve been working together to make games, videos, and stories since 2009. That includes tabletop roleplaying games like Questlandia and Noirlandia, and small games like Enter the Orb.
We like sharing not just our games, but the process we use to make them! We have an ongoing podcast, Design Doc, where we talk about our design process and creative work in general.
We also share updates and in-progress drafts on Discord and on our Patreon.
Hannah writes rules and fiction, designs games and websites, and has spearheaded many of the Turtlebun projects! Hannah's presently struggling to complete various classic point-and-click adventure games, and is training for a Starfleet expedition into the unknown. If you're on twitter, you can follow Hannah at: @hanbandit.
Evan does game design, writing, and art for Turtlebun. He's the illustrator for many of our games, including Damn the Man, Save the Music and Noirlandia! He has the sweetest cat named Gilly, who purrs only for food. Evan posts art on twitter: @adrawnnovel.
We love interviews! If you'd like to talk with us about our games, the cooperative business model, or life in general, please send us a message on our contact form or email contact (at) turtlebun (dot) com.
We've had the pleasure of speaking on several podcasts about our work! You can hear us on Yes Indie'd Pod, the Building the Game Podcast, and Character Creation Cast.
Hacking our games
Please, hack our games! We're currently working on an SRD for the Questlandia system to make this process even easier. If you make a game inspired by one of our games, we'd love to know about it and share it online! We of course appreciate credit.
We live and work in western Massachusetts and print much of our work in Northampton, Massachusetts.
We want to acknowledge that we are standing on and benefiting from land that has been seized, expropriated, and stolen from Indigenous peoples. For thousands of years, this has been Pocumtuck land. This is still the homelands of the Pocumtuck, Norwottock, Woronoco, Agawam, Nipmuck, Abenaki. These Native peoples and their descendants are still living here among us. Every time we gather here we must acknowledge and respect that fact.
