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.
Jepp: 1) Please keep critiquing games by building new ones :)...
Chris Kilgariff: Hey, This game needs to be a mobile phone...
Andrew: Just linked the book club to you, boosting your...
ZomBuster: Your foreseeing powers are only bested by that German octopus
The_B: If this means Robin gives you a new community item, I propose an all seeing third eye hat that can predict the future. Or just look really creepy in the middle of the Heavy's forehead.
Nonomu198: Please, Tom, you're making it look as if you're surprised.
Quasar: I think the thing to take from this is that you should probably work for Valve.
You could head their UK branch.
... Can I have a job there? I'll make the tea, anything really.
PacifismFailed: Pyro = Robo Abe Lincoln
Joe!: No no tom needs a german octopus for a hat
FinalFrog: So basically, the Engie update is your ideas for new equipment, some rare and unfortunate attention attracting golden wrenches, plus some maps? Shouldn't you be working for Valve by now?
Also, I endorse The_B's idea. It's that or some sort of silly reference on the main page for the Engie update announcing that this is officially titled "The Pentadact Engie Update."
Areisul: To be honest though, a portable sentry is basically a given.
Joe!: i bet tom is actually robin in disguise. or maybe the octopus
Peter: Well the 100th wrench got crafted, and I fear valve merely set a cunning trap for you Tom. Im expecting extra TF2 acheivements just for you involving a certain garden ordament.
I am hoping it is dressed like Abe Lincon though.
Segnaro: I am wholly prepared to see a post titled Valve Steals Sixth James Weapon Idea -- they have released the mini sentry.
verendus: is anyone able to actually play the game, or are the servers too busy for everyone?
