Thomas Was Alone…

30 Jun 12 


At the beginning of the year, an indy games developer called Mike Bithell emailed me and asked me to check out a little game he was working on. So I did. And I loved it. It was only an early version, but I thought it was absolutely beautiful. He asked me if I’d narrate the game. I was very pleased to.

The game is out today, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. It’s called Thomas Was Alone… if you’ve got a Mac or a PC, check it out. It’s a dream to play, has incredible music by David Housden, and a really lovely story, which I’ve tried not to ruin. I’m proud to be part of it. You can download it here.

Also in the world of videogames, I’m asked a lot on Twitter if Shaun Hastings will be back for Assassin’s Creed 3. And he will. Which means I’ll have to think of some grumpy things to say. This time round, I was lucky enough to be asked to also write some stuff for the game itself by Corey May, which has been great fun. They’ve renamed the Animus “the Danimus” as a result.

That’s not true.

But the game is shaping up to be amazing and comes out in a few months…

    It’s the most wonderful game. The story just works beautifully and the narration is superb – well done Mike and you (and musician David)

    I knew I recognised the voice, but couldn’t place it. Very good work, Danny, the narration captured the charm of the game brilliantly.
