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.
Fact Friday: this was Morrisette’s original lyric until Warner Brothers demanded it be changed to spoons and knives because of “What.”
wufire: And you *know* that crate over there is full of bombs
The_B: This is the thing totally not discussed on this month's PCG podcast, right?
(Never before has the below button seemed so apt.)
nemryn: The cruelest part is, there's probably bombs in that crate.
Plumberduck: Could be worse, you could have 99 problems but a bomb ain't one.
Anton: Hey Tom,
I couldn't find a link to your email adress so I'll just leave this message as a comment :
I was wondering if you ever played the Total War series and, if so, had considered writing a diary about it? I enjoyed reading your GalCiv diaries tremendously, I even bought the game last week, and while it's a lot of fun, your article made it sound much better! And I believe the Total War series (perhaps Rome?) Would make a great subject for the same kind of article.
Anyway, thanks for writing those great pieces, and good luck with Gunpoint!
NoUseforAName: Hmm... how did it fit with the rest?
It's like 16 ropes, when all you need is a bomb/
It's meeting the man of my dreams/
And the meeting his beautiful....
Zacmanman: It's better than having zero ropes and zero bombs.
