I have no idea what a “Fisticle” is, but I do know what “Iron” is. It’s how hard Iron Fisticle‘s level of challenge is. With no difficulty to choose from, the game can often be intimidating. But it’s dastardly fun, and a project over four years in the making. It shares similarities with other arena shooters of past and present, but this monster-themed shooter stands out with the inclusion of co-op and a visually appealing palette.
Indie developer Mike Bithell and Curve Studios are pleased to announce “Thomas Was Alone” for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita is available today on the US PlayStation Store, priced $9.99; and from tomorrow on the EU PlayStation Store, priced £6.99. A 20 level DLC expansion pack is also available priced $2.99/£1.99.
Thomas Was Alone is a study in simplicity. A 2D platform-puzzle game that quickly engages and engrosses the player with its charming storyline and art style.
[box_light]Created by Mike Bithell, with a BAFTA-award winning voice over performance by Danny Wallace and with a rousing score by David Housden, Thomas Was Alone launched for PC and Mac in the summer of 2012 to critical acclaim and has built a strong following for the brand and developer Bithell amongst the indie gamer and development community. In addition to Danny Wallace’s BAFTA award, Thomas Was Alone also received BAFTA nominations for Best Story and Best Music.
