Tom Sparks is a classic action-adventure style game in development by indie studio Tasty Poison Games that blends together action and exploration elements set in a cavernous diesel punk world.

Back us on Kickstarter: Kickstarter.com
Vote for us on Greenlight:

Key Features:

  • Fully 3D Characters, Enemies and Environments.
  • A beautifully rendered Diesel Punk adventure.
  • A huge array of weapons to find, build and upgrade.
  • Tons of objects and enemies to smash up.
  • Amazing boss fights!
  • Works great with both a controller or mouse and keyboard!
  • A mesmerizing sound track by award winning composer Sean Beeson.
  • PC, Mac and Linux.


Tom Sparks and The Quakes of Ruin is an adventure / shooter game with exploration elements and light platforming. Our goal is to create a game full of fast paced action and extraordinary weapons in a similar vein to games like Ratchet and Clank but with more of a Diesel Punk theme and story line.

We hope to continue on with Tom and more adventures underground!

Update 1

Due to the overwhelming requests to bring the Wii U port of Tom Sparks earlier in our stretch goals, we have shifted the tiers slightly to make it happen.
What this has done, is lowered the overall cost of our final stretch goal at the expense of us working a bit harder to see this through. (Which we are more than happy to do for the players of Tom.)
We always wanted to have the Wii U in our development of Tom and now it will just be a bit sooner which we believe is a good thing all round!

Keep Smiling! Keep Gaming!

The TPG Team.

I really enjoyed Tom Sparks. Keep up the great work and good luck with the Kickstarter!

I have made a video playing the game and giving some thoughts.


I forgot to mention this in the video. I think you should be able to pick up the bolts that fell in the ravine when you are standing close to the edge. Like Ratched and Clank has.

Why only 64 bit demo ? Very limiting audience.

Sorry about that. That was an oversight and we've uploaded a 32 bit demo instead. Hope you enjoy it!
