Though many copies sold through bundles and discounts, the platformer still achieves an important milestone.
Indie platformer Thomas Was Alone, which originally started out as a Flash title for PC, has gone on to sell over 1 million units in its lifespan. This is according to creator Mike Bithell on Twitter.
“Ummm.. so… yeah.. Thomas Was Alone has now sold over one million copies.”
Bithell did make sure to clarify that many of those sales came via special deals and whatnot. “Note: bulk of those sales were in bundles / discounts / promotions. So stop your 1mil x $10 maths right now.”
But it’s still a significant milestone all the same. Thomas Was Alone has made its way to the PlayStation 3 and Vita in the meantime and currently Bithell is busy developing Volume for the PS4, PC and Vita. Volume looks to combine stealth action with LEGO-style level customization. It also looks incredibly snazzy – there’s a chance it could slip into next year though. Stay tuned for more details on Volume in the coming months.
