Hello! I'm Tom. I designed a game called Gunpoint, about rewiring things and punching people, and now I'm working on a new one called Heat Signature, about sneaking aboard randomly generated spaceships. Here's some more info on all the games I've worked on, here's the podcast I do, here are the videos I make on YouTube, here are some of the articles I wrote for PC Gamer, and here are two short stories I wrote for the Machine of Death collections.
Hopefully a facial expression can’t be considered a spoiler, but if you’re not keeping up with Dexter this ought to tell you enough to realise that you should be. If you are, you’ll recognise it as one of the best reaction shots in the history of man.
MrDan: Haha, that bit was so great. Only Dexter could make such a face after what he had just done.
I think such moments are one of the drawbacks of the series. Dexter gets away with too much stuff in the close vicinity of other people.
Tom Francis: That one was a stretch because it was impulsive, but the rest of the time he gets away with it because he's a cop and knows how to do it all right. I love the professionalism of his kills, the tarpaulin and neatly packaged limbs.
Dabs: Just finished watching it and this was such a good episode all over. They've really started to humanise Dexter a lot over the last three or so episodes too. The series began by watching an emmotionally "empty" individual satiate his need to kill week after week (as in what we saw week after week I mean). Now he's actually becoming a person who's able to recognise Deb's feelings of isolation (or at least, respond non-verbally with empathy), who actually now prefers "enchanting Rita over the worried [rape victim] one". A very heart-rending ending too. Possible spoiler: Anyone else buying into the "Rudy is Dexter's brother" theory?
Dabs: Spoiler tags don't appear to be working. My apologies if the above spoiled anything from anyone, although hopefully Tom will see this before anyone and black-out any offending material.
bob_Arctor: Dabs read the book mate!
Which one was Rudy again? Can't remember from the book.
Dabs: Cheers bob, will do when I get the chance. Already have 4 other books pending though, on my "to-read" list.
Rudy's the prosthetics doctor who Deb's currently dating in the show.
rokridge: I have suffered from mental illness for 12 years. I think it's time I actualy killed someone. My wife left me for another man 2 months ago. he'll do.
Engin: Damn, I wish I could think of sothneimg smart like that!
