Thomas Was Alone - now on iPad

Thomas was alone - the quirky atmospheric minimalist platformer has had a native conversion to iOS (iPad only). Creator Mike Bithell told that rather than just let Unity's "export" function handle it (which produced a sub par result) the project was given to studio Bossa to handle (and actually written by industry stalwart Col Rodgers) and as a result the control mechanism was given an overhaul to make a touch interface work on the platformer.

"It's just been about creating a not s*** virtual joypad. I'm happy with how it's come out. It feels solid. It feels like the game, which was the lowest bar for me. That was the minimum spec. It had to be as good as the existing version of the game."
