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.
I haven’t talked about Portal much here yet – except to gasp that she says my words – and I will. But for now, here’s a soothing, brilliant and relatively spoiler-free fan performance of what has become its theme.
The criminal thing about embedding, of course, is that it robs the linkee – or ‘victim’ – of any interest generated. So do swing by Jeremy’s blog if you like the cut of his micro.
If you haven’t played Portal, don’t click through to the video’s page on YouTube – even the title is a spoiler of sorts, and the related videos doubly so. Also avoid this post by the writer of the song, Jonathan Coulton, blaming its brilliance on Valve.
Jonty: I am deeply in love with this song. With most of the songs in Orange Box, actually. It's only the DRAMA RNB in Episode 2 that spoils it.
Also, this seems to be the only YouTube video ever created not to have horrifyingly stupid comments on it. Weird. Eerie.
