Mike Bithell was one of the developers who held a session at the recent EuroGamer Expo 2014 event over at Earls Court in London.

For those not familiar with Mike, he’s an independent dev who built on his game jam concept of a minimalistic puzzle platformer to create Thomas Was Alone, a multi-award winning title that sold over a million copies. On top of this achievement he’s a prolific twitterer, passionate voice in the gaming community and an overall really nice guy.

His latest project, Volume, see’s him turn his hand to a genre he loves – the stealth-em-up! We got to play the futuristic Robin Hood themed game on the floor and then, with Push Start’s Daniel help as intrepid camera person, managed to snag 20 precious minutes with the man himself to talk about gaming, his latest work and influences.
