Turdle initially started as a silly idea for the RESET 4Kb Craptastic Compo for C64, but I decided to embellish on it a little and release it now, while there's still steam rising off it. Now available for free on Roy’s itch.io page. You can even play it in the browser from the itch.io page!

(Tim) - Itch.Io Bundle for Ukraine - The people of Ukraine are under attack. As game developers we want to create new worlds, not to destroy the one we have. That's why we've banded together to present this charity bundle to help Ukrainians survive this ordeal and thrive after the war ends. This cause has resonated with creators around the globe, to the extent that our bundle contains almost 1,000 games, tabletop RPGs, books, etc. All this for a minimum donation of $10 but please give more to this cause.
