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.
This made me laugh.
Povenmire and Marsh still found themselves fighting for some of their more surreal material. In several episodes, for instance, a character named Major Monogram interjects—apropos of nothing—the phrase “Ever since… the Academy.” A Disney executive quickly flagged the line, arguing (correctly) that it was utter nonsense. Povenmire assured him that it was exactly the kind of nonsense kids would parrot to one another at school. In fact, he felt so confident, he told the executive he expected to one day hear children repeat the line. The skeptical exec pledged to give Povenmire $100 for every time Povenmire heard it (unsolicited, of course).
“He now owes me $2,000,” Povenmire says. “And he said, ‘Can I give it to you in Hannah Montana merchandise?’”
The making of Phineas and Ferb, on Wired. This was the first kids’ TV I’d seen in years when I caught on telly at Kim’s, and I felt like the future of humanity was in better hands than I realised.
Patrick Rose: I'm a great fan of that show. I have P&F stationary.
I wish I had the series...
Conor McCormack: P&F is one of the most genius kids tv shows I have watched in a long time, and it manages to entertain me and my younger sister at the same time. Just want to have a boxset or something :<
dual_barrel: My younger brother loves it a lot.
