The end of British Summer Time was the start of something great, as a bunch of indie developers used the twilight un-hour between 02.00am and 02.00am to make some games. Well, 57 games to be precise. These include KITTEN PAPER ("Kitten wants to kill toilet paper", reads the description), Fight Against Evil Turquoise Cubes ("Those cubes are evil and probably also kill puppies"), and Super Afro High Five ("A game about afros, giving high five").

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
