Gunpoint by Tom Francis aka Suspicious Developments is our topic this week. Tom Francis began his game industry career with 9 years as a writer for PC Gamer, and this game is his response to what he learned in his years of game criticism. It was so successful that he was able to quit his boring day job as a games journalist and become an indie game developer full time!
Gunpoint is a puzzle platformer for PC, Mac, and Linux. You can buy it for $9.99 from the developer’s website or on Steam. We recommend buying it through the Humble Store for both a Steam key and a DRM free copy. Expect it to take 3-4 hours to complete
