The lights are on
Mike Bithell wowed gamers with his minimalist title, Thomas Was Alone. Using simple geometric shapes, Bithell created a compelling set of relationships among the many plainly named characters. Today he announced his new title, Volume.
Volume is a story of an as-yet-unnamed man committing crimes for as-yet-undisclosed reasons. The stealth gameplay is reminiscent of Metal Gear Solid's VR missions, and players will have the opportunity to remix the levels and release them for others to experience.
Bithell is joined again by composer David Housden, whose music can be heard in Thomas Was Alone and the gameplay trailer below. Four artists are accompanying the pair through development, giving Volume a look distinctive from Bithell's last title.
More information about Volume will be available in October.
