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.
The British Office of Government Commerce have finally discovered what webcomic author Ryan North has long known: if you put the letters OGC on their side, it looks a bit like a seated man clutching his own erect penis. Unfortunately it cost them Â£14,000 to commission the logo which edified the resemblance, and remarkably they’re not scrapping it. The Telegraph story on the matter doesn’t name the spokesperson defending it, but he’s my new favourite nameless spokesperson:
“On consideration we concluded that the effect was generic to the particular combination of the letters OGC – and it is not inappropriate to an organisation thatâ€™s looking to have a firm grip on Government spend.”
Or, a penis.
ImperialCreed: Hah, that sly edit just made me giggle all over again. Well done on a thoroughly out of context headline too. Where do you dig this kind of stuff up?
rfry11: ...Wow. I've never noticed that. Can anyone else see the whole OGC being developed on some Counter-Strike server?
