Thomas may have been alone, but he seems to be turning up everywhere. Bossa Studios’ Thomas Was Alone can now be picked up for both Mac and iPad.
Thomas Was Alone for iPad brings the gentle geometric adventures of a group of quirky quadrilaterals to a whole new audience of players, with the controls lovingly re-designed to provide a fully optimized touch–screen experience.
With its minimalist, old-school aesthetic, Thomas Was Alone encourages players to invest themselves in an emotional experience, inviting them on a journey filled with heroes, villains, master-minds and lovers! An adventure that lingers long in the memory, Mike Bithell’s creation is given a compelling narration via Danny Wallace’s BAFTA-award winning voice-over, and is accompanied by a magnificent electronic soundtrack composed by David Housden.
Thomas Was Alone received additional BAFTA nominations for Best Story and Best Music, and following the overwhelming critical and commercial reception on Steam and PlayStation Vita, Bossa Studios stepped in to help realize the anticipated release on iPad and Mac.
“I’m honestly still a bit surprised that Thomas Was Alone has found the audience and critical reception it has,” explains Mike Bithell, the game’s creator. “I’m really happy to be releasing a solid version of the game on iPad with the help of the talented folk at Bossa Studios.”
“I’m proud that Bossa is bringing this immense indie success to millions of new fans on the iPad” adds Imre Jele, co-founder at Bossa Studios. “Thomas Was Alone genuinely feels more personal and intimate on a touch-screen device. There’s now an instant connection between you and the lovingly crafted characters of Mike’s powerful narrative.”
