announced today that Thomas Was Alone is officially released today on PS3 and PS Vita complete with DLC.
To quote: It's done. A game which began as a Flash game made over a weekend because my girlfriend was away and I was a bit bored, is today coming out on PS3 and PS Vita via PSN and PS+.
That last sentence was a bit of a mouthful. I apologize.
Thomas Was Alone is a game about friendship and jumping. As you can see from the images and videos no doubt littered amongst this post, it is also very much about rectangles.
If you've got PlayStation Plus and you're in the US, you'll get 20% off the game for a limited time, because of the Spring Fever sale. Which is awesome. Daffodils rock.
This version will also give you first access to some new stuff. There's a new DLC episode which tells the story of Benjamin, a new square with a jetpack and big ideas, and a commentary mode in the main game where you can listen to me going on and on about how clever I was putting the game together.
It's spellbinding. I'm listening to it as I write this, because I'm on a train and it's either that or Bowie's new album, which I've listened to twice. You should really listen to Bowie's album too. I'm not here to plug that...
