The Eurogamer Podcast #29: The Streets of Tom Francisco

Heat Signature and glowing cats.

So we're back, from outer space. This is a clever reference, because the P-Cast has been offline for longer than we intended, and we are returning with a nice look at Heat Signature, which is set in outer space. Also, there is that line from I Will Survive that I am gently invoking.

Anyway, for episode #29 of the Eurogamer P-Cast, Chris Bratt and I are joined by Tom Francis, the designer of Gunpoint and the forthcoming Heat Signature, a game about sneaking onto spaceships and doing various stealthy things while you are there. We talk a bit about all of that, and we also talk a bit about a thing I heard about how to warn future generations of landfills stuffed with decaying nuclear waste. Also, because it is the P-Cast, XCOM 2 comes up. Hopefully there is something here for everyone?

Also, a tiny bit of housekeeping. While it's lovely to have the P-Cast back - lovely for me, at least - I am off for the next five weeks, so there's going to be another gap opening up. Sincere apologies!

Rather listen on iTunes, would you? Go on then.
