Thomas Was Alone coming to PS3 and PS Vita this spring, supports Cross-Buy

Thomas Was Alone, the well-received indie platformer from former Bossa Studios lead designer Mike Bithell, will be released through PlayStation Network this spring on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, Bithell announced today.

Bithell launched Thomas Was Alone, which he developed in his free time, on Windows PC and Mac OS X last July. Curve Studios, the British developer behind Fluidity, Explodemon! and the PlayStation Portable versions of the Buzz! games, will handle the PS3 and PS Vita ports. Pricing was not announced, but the game will support Cross-Buy, so buying one version will get you the other version for free. (The PC version of Thomas Was Alone is available for $9.99.)

"I am incredibly proud to see Thomas getting a mainstream console release and the guys at Curve Studios are doing an awesome job making this version special," said Bithell in a press release announcing the ports. "Thomas took over my life for the last two years so it's great to see it reaching an even wider audience."

On the PlayStation Blog, Bithell added, "If we're honest, [it's] ridiculous."

Thomas Was Alone is a 2D puzzle-platformer focuses on small rectangles that the player navigates through levels with jumping and floating in anti-gravity. The rectangles are the game's characters — the world's first instances of sentient AI — and the story is narrated by Assassin's Creed voice actor Danny Wallace.
