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.
Impressed, astounded, I stare at the black screen for eleven minutes, then admiringly reach for the power button to reboot.
Too good for the links bar everyone ignores on the right (it has Google Ninjas if you click the title!), Chris Livingston’s Clear Sky review goes deep.
The illustration is my own work.
Killa-Ewok: Amazing illustration to an amazing review.
Netram: Clearly his PC is broke. Having completed the game without mods I can say this game is 10x better than SoC. I dare you to go back SoC without mods. Clear Sky just has so much more you can do, and it's story is told a BILLION times better. I remember reaching the end of SoC and thinking, what?
Chris Livingston: Heh. Clear Screen. Nice.
Lack_26: Wow, I'm simply astounded by the brilliance. I, on behalf of the poly-tec... university of that back-ally behind Tescos, present you with the honorary degree in art and design.
Devenger: Heh heh, art and desing.
...I had to scour the internet for hours to find a way of getting SoC to run (it came down to editing my registry to allow more virtual memory or something like that), and even after that SoC felt dull, slow-paced and so full of (implied) unfinished features and bug-glitchiness I gave up pretty quickly. I was hoping CS would allow me to appreciate this whole exciting enticing world everyone was taking about with SoC I must have missed... apparently, not only is it not worth installing if I want to play, it's not worth playing if I want to get immersed (according specifically to the reviewers I have respect for).
Then again, I'm the guy who quit BioShock halfway through because I got lost and got bored of the plot. What did everyone else see in Rapture I didn't? I shall never know.
