Last summer, Mike Bithell’s indie platformer Thomas Was Alone took the world by storm. It was received with high praise from both critics and players, and has since received a BAFTA nomination for its heartwarming story of friendship and jumping. Now we’re delighted to announce that we’ve been working on bringing Thomas’s adventures, as well as a brand new story across 20 never-before-seen levels, to PS3 and PS Vita.
Thomas Was Alone tells the story of the world’s first self-aware artificial intelligence programs and their attempts to traverse their artificial environment in search of a way out. Thomas and his friends must cooperate by combining their unique abilities and strengths to overcome the obstacles in their way. Danny Wallace provides amusing narration of the AIs’ innermost thoughts, accompanied by a soothing, bleepy score by David Housden.
You can also discover a new story in the Benjamin’s Flight level pack, which will be debuting exclusively on PS3 and PS Vita. Join the impetuous Benjamin in his quest to unearth a great secret during the events leading up to Thomas’s emergence, and take control of a new, mysterious ability. We think it’s the most fun ability yet, and you might be able to guess at its nature from the level pack’s name…
It’s been very exciting collaborating on this project with Mike, and we’re very proud to be the ones to bring this amazing game to a whole new audience.
Thomas Was Alone and its new level pack, Benjamin’s Flight, will be available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita this spring.
