The truly wonderful indie platformer Thomas Was Alone has made its way on to Steam where we can all proceed to throw money at it. Priced at a mere £6 (£5.39 currently as it’s enjoying a 10% discount), it’s likely the cheapest way to build an emotional connection with a collection of boxes. The alternative would be about nine tabs of LSD and I don’t know any dealers south of Dundee that will sell you that for less than £7.50. Links, videos, and further gabbing below.
So, if I’ve already convinced you,the Steam store link is here.
Thomas Was Alone has you start life as a rogue glitch in a computer programme, you name yourself Thomas and while initially alone you soon meet other oblongs, each with different, impeccably-written personalities. Separated you can achieve little, but together with your different qualities – shortness, narrowness, long jump, ability to float, etc – you’re able to solve different problems. It really is superb. Convinced?
If not, watch this:
Still not convinced, monster? Well, here, take this bribe:
Box + emotional response= sale?
