There was nothing. And then there was Thomas. Thomas is an AI. A rectangular red one. He is self aware, with an instinct to move up and to the right. The tale is told through quotation text from those outside the machine that witnessed the accidental birth of the AI, and a narrator, who works through his lines as if reading a fairy tale to a classroom of primary school children. It’s certainly charming as new AIs are discovered, friendships made, outsiders find their place, and there’s even a love story. Personifying cubes and rectangles is no easy task but Mike Bithell has achieved it with grace.
