Fill out your indie bingo card by picking up minimalist platformer Thomas Was Alone, which is 10% off its usual cover price of $10 to mark its debut on Steam. The Steam version is available for Mac and PC, and has Steamplay cross-save functionality. Don’t be fooled by the simplistic graphics – the classic gameplay has drawn almost universal critical praise, and somehow the blocky stylings present a unique atmosphere. Plus, you’ll lose all hipster cred forever if you miss even a single one of this year’s bumper crop of awesome indies, and then you’d have to shave off your curly moustache or hand in your ironic retro wedges.
