Hey! I'm Michael.

I'm an independent game developer currently working on FORKLIFT FLOWERPOT - a weird, claymation-inspired, 2.5D exploration & card battle game.

Please consider giving the game a Wishlist on Steam! It only takes a minute and it helps me tremendously.

Find me on the internet:


Or, send a lil' email to michael@toomuchtomato.com
