New Volume trailer is a ballsy marketing move from Thomas Was Alone dev

Thomas Was Alone creator Mike Bithell has made the bold and indeed slightly cheeky decision to release Volume’s latest trailer right before E3. Applaud his gutsiness.

“Yes. The day before E3. This will be, interesting :)” Bithell said in an email to press. Ha ha, indeed.

The live-action trailer below is a commercial for Gisborne Industries, an important company in Volume’s narrative. Volume, as I hope you recall because you love innovative tiny indies and also being on-board the next big thing as much as we do, is a futuristic retelling of the Robin Hood story.

The gameplay is stealth-focused, with an emphasis on sound – hence the title. We’re expecting it in 2015, on PC and maybe beyond.
