Mike Bithell's critically acclaimed indie platformer, Thomas Was Alone, is now available on Xbox One, PS4 and Wii U. Thomas Was Alone is an indiepuzzle platformer video game created by Mike Bithell, originally released as a Flash-based browser game in October 2010.
In the game, the player controls one or more simple polygon shapes representing several out-of-control AI entities, working with the shapes to get each to their individual end points on each level. Each shape is characterized with a unique name and personality, including the eponymous Thomas, which are conveyed to the player through the use of a narrorator, voiced by Danny Wallace.
The game allows you to guide a team of sentient rectangles through various puzzling platform stages, while Danny Wallace lends his own wistful and amusing commentary to proceedings, Thomas Was Alone is a lot better than it sounds.
Each rectangle has its own unique skills that you'll need to take advantage of in order to reach the exit in each of the game's 120 levels, and with 15 different characters, that's a lot of combinations to twist your melon around across a whole series of environments.
You can pick up Thomas Was Alone on Xbox One, PS4 and Wii U now.
