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.
Gone dark lately because a) I have a lot to organise, b) I have a lot to play, c) the next thing I was going to post I’m not sure I should post, and d) the thing after that would be about Spore again, and quite big. So here’s something quick and self-indulgent: stats!
del.icio.us/gonnas (Graham’s public bookmarks – seldom updated, but always worthwhile)
Upcoming releases for last.fm user Pentadact (Soundamus – much-needed idea, but get cluttered with so many re-releases and embarrassing people I only listened to that one time that I might unsubscribe)
James Comments (also three times more active than any other feed I’m subscribed to)
roBurky (fairly infrequent, but all good stuff so far)
1Fort Screenshot Gallery (I think more of Chris Livingston’s army of fans would be subscribed to his screenshots if they were aware it was possible)
Comments on your photos (because Flickr’s homepage says “NEW comments!” even when I read them a week ago)
Zeno’s London (my cousin’s blog, a literary agent and a great writer. It was great while it lasted, but he recently procreated so all content will likely be replaced with baby photos from now on)
Chris Livingston: Damn! I only have thirty-three nearly-finished posts in my drafts folder. Once again you have bested me, sir.
I was all into Chrome but now I'm back to Firefox, because Chrome doesn't recognize line breaks in Wordpress for some reason. So if I save a draft it presents it back to me as one big block of text. If they fix that, I'll come back.
Ledundead: Chris, do you think that's why 1fort wouldn't letus do those killbar things for a while?
spuzman00: Glad to see that you're still alive. I was worried something had happened.
SenatorPalpatine: I'm glad you're still here as well. I'm a chrome user, very happy with it. Can't wait to see what will happen to it later on. (it's only what, a week old? two?)
Thanks for the update, looking forward to more stuff. (Though I don't care much for the Spore stuff.)
Personally, I want to see more of the random audio clips. And whatever else you feel like posting. :)
Octaeder: Hmm, that user reading through a PS3 was probably me and it was only to show a friend the Sackboy spore creature in Field Studies 5. Anything more strenuous on that browser tends to make the eyes bleed.
roburky: Heh. "fairly" infrequent? There's only been one new post since I first linked anyone to it.
Tom Francis: I tried to avoid making it sound like a criticism, because of course infrequent blogs are the ideal ones to subscribe to.
Mr. Brit: I have read James on my PS3 and my iphone! Win!
Kazill: I'm currently test running chrome, and so far, it kicks ass. It's fast, efficient, and nice looking.
Also, I'm one of those people reading this on an iPhone, only actually it's an iPod Touch. They can't tell the difference yet.
