Proof That God Exists: My Favorite Indie Game of 2012 Is Coming to Vita & PS3

I loved Thomas Was Alone, the minimalist platformer released last year by Mike Bithell. The hilarious narration, memorable characters and awesome music defied my expectations I had after first hearing about the game and I was glad to see Thomas find a home on Steam. I'm never going to stop wanting for more people to play it. So it's great news that Thomas Was Alone will becoming to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

The jumping-block game will support CrossBuy, meaning that you'll have it for both devices after buying it on one. The PlayStation edition will also feature a new director's commentary mode, and a new DLC episode with a new mechanic, voiceover by Danny Wallace and music by David Housden. Given that the voicework and music were both excellent in the original release, those are fantastic additions.

Thomas Was Alone joins indie darlings Super Crate Box and Retro City Rampage on the Vita. And Hotline Miami is on its way there, too. Say what you want about Sony's portable but it's turning into a great little avenue for indie games to reach wider audiences.

I'm still not entirely clear on cross buy, as I only just got a Vita and don't have a PS3. From what I have looked at, if you buy the Vita version, that's all you get, but if you get something for the PS3, it lets you activate a Vita download if you network the Vita to the PS3. Is that what everyone else's experience has been?
