Thomas Was Alone creator Mike Bithell has said the title sold really well and Vita and attributes the uptake in the game game's users to PlayStation Plus.
Speaking with Joystiq, Bithell said the game has be played by more people through Plus than any other "platform".
"And that's exciting, because that's a whole bunch of cool players who are really into their games - that's why they have PS Plus - who know who the hell I am now," he said.
"As someone who's making the difficult second album, I need as many people onside, and knowing what Thomas Was Alone is, and maybe even knowing who I am, so it means something when the trailer comes out and it says 'From the creator of Thomas Was Alone.' And that's what PS Plus was awesome for.
"It just massively inflated my audience beyond what a normal esoteric indie platformer would have, which is great."
Bithell said he plans to unveil his next project in the coming months.
