Thomas was alone HD NEXT GEN OMGOMGOMG

Earlier this week I told you that the awesome Indie game, Thomas Was Alone, would be coming to even more consoles. While the information in that article seemed to be mistakenly leaked, there was zero mention of the game landing on Sony’s next generation console. That’s changed – the blocky platformer has now been confirmed for the PlayStation 4.

Curve Studios were responsible for porting the original game over to the PlayStation 3 and the Vita. They made the announcement over on the PlayStation Blog.

A lifelong PlayStation fan, Mike was genuinely excited by the idea of having the game appear on PS3 and PS Vita, and we had a great time creating that version. With that in mind, we’re now happy to announce that we’re bringing Thomas Was Alone to PS4, and it will be available to everyone as a cross buy title. That means if you picked up Thomas on PS3 or PS Vita at any point last year, you’ll be able to grab the game completely free on PS4.

That’s right, if you own any of the previous Sony versions, you’ll be able to claim a copy for your PS4 for absolutely nothing. The same applies to the Benjamin’s Flight DLC.

I really dig incentives like that. It makes me feel like I’m seen as a gamer, not just a source of money.

If you haven’t already noticed, many of us at Lazygamer are big fans of the game, and we have huge love for its creator, Mike Bithell. If you haven’t played it yourself, you literally have no excuse now. It’s not just some platformer. Those little blocks are packed with tons of personality! Thomas Was Alone will be arriving on the PS4 sometime later this year.

Rumour has it that we might be seeing it on even more platforms in future…

    That’s a much fancier overhead projector than what we had in school o_o

      I had a maths teacher in high school who wrote on the projector, and then used cleansing liquid to clean and rewrite (basically used it as her white/black board)

      HOWEVER….

      Second to last period….the fumes of this liquid got to her, without fail. And she would be hoog soos ‘n reenboog by the end of the day.

      Tuesday afternoon, double period, last class of day, will ALWAYS be remembered for the lulz, and the glorious snoozes I had

    ARRRRRR, brrrrrrrilliant!

    Thomas Was Alone was one of the most memorable, emotional experiences I’ve had in gaming. 10/10

  • Admiral Chief o’ thar 7 Seas

    EVERYONE should play TWA, they just should. Suck it in, digest it, get lost in it, and remember fondly the magic that is this game

  • I really like Mike, just not like Zoe… http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ljhzadYdSO1qdog02.gif

    One of the great things with Sony is cross-buy. I love that aspect. Does MS do this in any way? I don’t know, hence my question, but I don’t think it does.

    The ONE issue now is to try and get the bigger publishers to agree to this – oh and allow me to buy a retail copy but then download the game for free with a code perhaps on other platforms. Heck charge me a little if you must but give me an incentive.
