FREE LIVES

Free Lives are a team of teenage anthropomorphic turtles, led by their anthropomorphic beard wielding rat sensei in honing and perfecting their art of game jam jitsu to battle bills, pants, petty criminals, evil overlords and alien invaders. They met in the storm sewers of Cape Town, where they bonded over a love for dank accommodations, consuming copious amounts of pizza and remaining isolated from society-at-large.
