thomas was alone gnm.pngFollowing the shining example of Alphaland, Mike Bithell's Thomas Was Alone takes place inside the virtual- or non-space of an impressively evolved program, where bits of code develop their very own artificial intelligence, get to feel lonely and then jump around in beautifully minimalistic environments. Interestingly, Thomas Was Alone is also one of the very best platformers ever created (according to humble me at least) and the fact that it has just been made available on Steam and is currently being discounted means that you are out of excuses and, well, should probably grab it. Provided you enjoy great narration and smart takes on the genre that is.

Oh, and apparently achievements and controller support have also been added.
