This week is a huge one for everyone that is a part of ID@Xbox. Earlier this week they launched Never Alone and Jackbox Party Pack, and today they announced that three more games will be dropping tomorrow for Xbox One. The games are Thomas Was Alone, Pier Solar and the Great Architects, and The Pinball Arcade.
Thomas Was Alone
The first game coming tomorrow, Thomas Was Alone, isn't a new game at all. The game first launched as a flash based game back in 2010 and has since made its way to mobile devices and consoles. Thomas Was Alone is an immersive puzzle platformer that is driven by its narration.
The game is about "friendship and jumping" as Thomas and all of his proportioned friends try to overcome levels. Each shape will have its own unique personality and capability, so the shapes will have to work together to jump and overcome obstacles before arriving at the point of exit.

Pier Solar and the Great Architects
Next up we have Pier Solar and the Great Architects. Development of the game began as a Sega Genesis homebrew project but ultimately became something very special. Pier Solar is about three best friends; Hoston, Alina, and Eddesot. These three friends are on a journey to seek out a rare herb to cure Eddesot's stricken father.
The games plot is said to become even larger as the story unravels and becomes more focused on the Great Architects. Pier Solar is a love letter to the JRPG genre, and when it released on other platforms earlier this year it was widely accepted with raving reviews.
- Pier Solar and the Great Architects - Xbox One - 2.29 GB - $14.99 - Xbox Store
The Pinball Arcade
Lastly, The Pinball Arcade from Farsight Studios will be releasing tomorrow as well. Unlike Pinball FX, The Pinball Arcade focuses on allowing their users to play faithful recreations of classic real-life tables. The game is free-to-play and will have more than 25 tables available to purchase when it launches tomorrow, with more to come down the line. Some of those tables include Ghostbusters, Medieval Madness, and Twilight Zone.
