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.
Sometimes I’ll recommend you a particularly great episode of a podcast I listen to. Feel free to recommend your own in the comments! I probably don’t have to tell you that Serial is great.
Co-star of Spaced and Shaun of the Dead talks to Marc Maron about what he was doing before all of that, the nature of which you would probably never guess. On the party where he first met Simon Pegg:
“I was nervous to meet him. He was this stand-up comedian, and I was the funniest waiter at Chiquitos. We circled each other all night, until finally we were outside on a roof together, and we just did impressions at each other, for hours. It was like the duelling banjos.”
Edit: as with any interview podcast, skip the intro until you hear the guest. It’s like 14 fucking minutes here.
More Podcast Tips
Tom Camfield: Great shout - WTF, I think, has lost a little cutting edge ever since Maron got happy; I only dip in and out of them, but it's been a long time since Maron and his guest have been totally wretchedly honest with each other. Even here Nick Frost never talks about why he was kicked out of England, which would be unthinkable on earlier WTFs, but nonetheless, Nick Frost has had such a memorable life that this is one of the WTF highlights for me this year.
BuggsK100RS: Tom Camfield You Sir are Wrong! Nick Frost Lives in London with His wife.
Yes I know Wikipedia can be wrong but that is upto date.
Tom Francis: He does talk about being 'kicked out' of England in this podcast, though, and it's true he doesn't say why. Which leaves it equally mysterious as to why/when he was able to return.
