Overview edit · view history

TOM Productions was a German shareware development team consisting of Christian Männchen (graphics and sound) and Andreas Tofahrn (programming and documentation).

The team was active from 1987 to 1996 and released 8 games in total, most popular among them the Game of ROBOT series of action puzzle games that were among the most popular German shareware games in the late 1980s to early 90s. Distributor Boeder Software nominated the original Game of ROBOT for its Game of the Year 1990 award, and awarded Tofahrn and Männchen the title of Public Domain Authors of the Year 1990 (despite their games not having been released into the public domain).

While 1994's FlipOut was the last game developed by TOM Productions, Andreas Tofahrn kept maintaining the official website, produced Windows ports, and, as of December 2016, registration codes for all TOM games can still be purchased.
