As mentioned on the most recent episode of the UK podcast , last week Tom and I sat down and played his game, Gunpoint , while chatting about the ideas behind it. It wasn't my intention to fail at Tom's game quite so badly, but it's hard to talk and rewire levels at the same time and also shut up.

You can watch the full half hour of trivia, failure, and the odd bit of surprising competence below.

Gunpoint is out now and has been quite well received as far as I can tell. At least, Tom seems to really enjoy hovering outside the office window in his golden helicopter. You know, I think he's trying to tell us something.

Joining in 2011, Chris made his start with PC Gamer turning beautiful trees into magazines, first as a writer and later as deputy editor. Once PCG's reluctant MMO champion , his discovery of Dota 2 in 2012 led him to much darker, stranger places. In 2015, Chris became the editor of PC Gamer Pro, overseeing our online coverage of competitive gaming and esports. He left in 2017, and can be now found making games and recording the Crate & Crowbar podcast.
