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.
My choice for Game Of The Year just went up over at the PC Gamer part of CVG. I’m ashamed to say the master of stealth in the shot above is not me – though I did take it. For a while I changed my Steam ID to “i was a spy all along lol” to accentuate the frustration my victims presumably feel when the friend next to them turns out not to be called what they thought they were called and not in fact a friend of any kind. Since your real name is never displayed to your enemies while in disguise, my choice makes more sense, but I have to admit this guy’s has the edge in screenshots.
Alek: Ah, you've got to love civil disobedience!
(We should play sometime!
Joe: That has to be the best TF2 clip ever. It's on par with FYI I am a Spy.
Tom Francis: Aw, the video got took down.
Tom Francis: Attempts to replicate the sticky-bomb-batting trick under test conditions have been unsuccessful. Suspect hoax.
