Thomas Was Alone creator Mike Bithell has taken the wraps off of his second project.
Volume is a stealth game that has been described as Metal Gear meets Minecraft. Indie developer Bithell has been working on Volume for the past seven months, and is aiming for a late 2014 release window. Platforms are yet to be announced.
The idea is the player avoids guards while stealing items. Volume will release with hundreds of environments, but there's also a user generated content aspect to the game.
Each area can be remixed, added to and expanded upon by players using in-game tools. Bithell hopes players will release their own takes on the core levels and share them with the community.
Expect more on Volume at the Eurogamer Expo next month, and again at the Gamecity festival in October.
