Thomas Was Alone makes friends with iPad today

The minimalistic indie hit Thomas Was Alone is now on the App Store, for both iPad and Mac. It's available for $8.99 on either platform.

The iPad version includes virtual controls, which are naturally just as sparsely designed as the rest of the game. The tale of friendship and jumping among several geometric shapes caught critical attention starting in 2012, earning it BAFTA nominations for Best Story and Best Music. Surgeon Simulator developer Bossa Studios lent a hand for the port.
