Thomas Was Alone, a game about rectangles and friendship, coming to PSN/Vita this spring
Sony seems to be continuing its push for indie games as Mike Bithell appeared on the PlayStation Blog today to announce that his critically acclaimed and BAFTA nominated game, Thomas Was Alone, will be coming to PSN and Vita this spring. As you can see in the video above Thomas Was Alone is a minimalist puzzle platfomer where you control different rectangles and squares, each with their own personality and skills, to try and reach the exit. All of this of course while hearing the humorous story narrated by Danny Wallace (who you Assassin’s Creed fans might recognize as the voice of Shaun Hastings) with a fantastic soundtrack by David Housden.
Curve Studios, the creators of Explodemon, and Bossa Studios will be the developers helping with the transition to PSN and Vita, but there will be some extras included with this release that are sure to excite those who have already played the game before. Besides touch screen functionality on the Vita for selecting characters and controlling the camera the game will be getting a creators commentary and timed exclusive DLC which features a square with a jet pack, which I am sure will lead to some interesting situations.
We will have to wait till it’s closer to spring for a more specific release date and the price is still being determined but Mike has stated that it will be a cross buy(#yopo) title.
