I am Tom Jubert, Story Lead on games like Subnautica, The Talos Principle (franchise!), FTL and The Swapper. Talos 2 releases tomorrow, currently adapting 1984, AMA!
Starting at 4pm ET, 8pm UK, today, Wednesday 1st November, and I'll be around for at least a couple hours, or as long as your questions are coming!
I've worked on dozens of games as a writer, narrative designer and voice director. I started out in 2005 in the QA department at Lionhead on Black & White 2, before running story on Frictional Games' first release, Penumbra: Overture.
I am currently adapting 1984 with Inner Party, an indie studio established by myself and Subnautica's Lead Programmer (please support us by wishlisting at the Steam link below!). We have already hit some IP censorship controversy, which you can read about in the press release further down.
I am also working on a super exciting unannounced indie FPSRPG in Unreal 5.
And of course Talos Principle 2 releases tomorrow! Launch trailer just dropped today: https://youtu.be/9ivatJM-9oA?si=ntLdUrVhQWWfT8sr
In other news I will be speaking this Saturday on 'Narrative Anarchy' at AdventureX in London, which I believe will be live streamed or otherwise available to watch after the event.
Questions welcomed on all topics, including Talos 2 spoilers, previous games, future projects, general games dev, philosophy, futurism and aliens.

EDIT: If you'd like to support me in my work FOR FREE, RIGHT NOW the best way you could express your appreciation would be to wishlist 1984. This won't only help us build that game, more importantly it will empower me and my two brilliant friends at Inner Party to build our own indie studio and make tons of games that we really want to make.

EDIT: I'm answering a couple more questions but I'll likely log off shortly. Thank you so much, all of you. It's true when I say I get more joy from your questions here than from any other interview platform. DID I SAY WISHLIST 1984?!
AND ENJOY TALOS PRINCIPLE 2!
