I like Thomas Was Alone, Mike Bithell’s melancholy tale of identity and shapely destiny, but I wasn’t particularly surprised by the backlash. I’m referring, of course, to this quote from Bithell himself.
I thought I was writing a competent story with an amazing platform game. It turned out it was the other way around! I didn’t realise it would get the attention it did, which is lovely. But odd.
That’s from an interview back in 2013 about Thomas and Bithell’s follow-up Volume [official site]. The trailer below confirms that Volume, a stealthy sci-fi interpretation of the Robin Hood legend, will be released on August 18th.
