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.
Just posted this today, via the ever-brilliant Waxy.org. On my life, I haven’t laughed so long or so hard at anything since the original lolrus, and I can’t stress enough what I say in the post: this is exponentially funnier the louder you play it.
Seniath: Yeees, a friend showed me this earlier. While I missed out on the initial rickrolling fad (don't frequent SA, or 4chan, or which ever dank pit of the internets it was spawned in) I have experienced the after effect. This, certainly, is one of the best, but doesn't quite reach the heights of http://xkcd.com/351/. My obsession with 'meta' is a running joke amongst my friends, so the concept of meta-rickrolling just hits a certain spot little else can touch.
Tom Francis: It's possible you're not listening to it loud enough.
Seniath: I'm in the computing lab, I doubt the others would appreciate it. Saying that, we were playing it earlier, and we discovered that someone on our course actually has the song on his iPod. This worried us somewhat.
