About

Hi! My name is Tom, though my online alias is Larval Extract. The name is a reference to Half Life 2: Episode 2, I just found it funny at the time, and it stuck ever since.

I’m a software engineering student in Liverpool with a specific interest in game development. I recently completed a 12 month internship at BossAlien working on the upcoming Switch and mobile game Star Wars: Hunters.

On this website, you’ll find a portfolio of my work, both University work that I’m proud of and personal projects, namely MGF Explorer, which is a reverse engineered content reading tool for both MechAssault games. There’s also a bit of 3D work though I don’t do much of that anymore.

I love FPS games, mainly the Halo series.
