Thomas Was Alone を購入する



"This is a game that will make you care about puzzle-platforming with coloured blocks because a British man talks about them a lot."


“For all its charm, Thomas is more than just the super-minimalist-yet-incredibly-engaging tales of a few plucky AIs. It's the story of games. Of how they get made and played, of the joys and frustrations they bring and of the thousands of tiny iterative processes that go into evolving single titles and the entire medium into their best forms.”
Evan Narcisse, Kotaku

“It proves that you don't need tens of millions of dollars and hundreds of staff to make a game story worth telling, just a good hook, an engaging vision, and a whole lot of heart.”
9/10 – Josh Tolentino, Destructoid

“The understated aesthetic design and unusual co-op puzzles will absorb you for the game’s duration – the wit and personality of the writing, though, will stay with you for much longer.”
8/10 – Keza MacDonald, IGN


Thomas Was Alone, and then, Well, he Wasn't.

Thomas Was Alone is an indie minimalist 2D platformer about friendship and jumping and floating and anti-gravity. Guide a group of rectangles through a series of obstacles, using their different skills together to get to the end of each environment.
Listen to awesome music by David Housden. Jump over rectangles meticulously placed by Mike Bithell. Listen to voiceover read wistfully and a bit amusingly by Danny Wallace.

Thomas Was Alone tells the story of the world's first sentient AIs, and how they worked together to, well, not escape: Escape is a strong word. 'Emerge' might be better. 'Emerge' has an air of importance about it, while keeping the myriad plot twists and superhero origin stories you'll discover under wraps. We didn't even mention the bouncing. That'd be overkill.

Key Features

  • Beat 100 levels, and uncover the story of the AIs.
  • Utilize the unique skills of 10+ characters.
  • Immerse yourself in David Housden's critically acclaimed procedural score.
  • Chuckle along to Danny Wallace's narration.

Personal Rating : 8/10. Recommended.

1. Excellent sound effect.
Background music can be described as "excellent". It actually makes me calm down and even enjoy the loneliness in the journey. Narration is also excellent. The voice is so charming and the story is interesting. Sometimes, “he", the narrator, even try to sound like a girl. So cute~ (In Chinese, we call it "my ears got pregnant". LOL)


2. Interesting story.
Excellent sound effect is not enough to make this game so special. What really capture my interest is the world design and the loneliness it shows. We were born alone... Meeting others... Trust others and count on them for the first time... Making friends... Leave for some reason... And meeting others... (Spoil Alert) I won't tell you how upset I am when the giant thing "eat away" those simple shapes. And that is probably why you cannot reject this game by characters' simple shapes.


3.Moderate difficulty.
Although it can be classified as a puzzle game, this game is quite easy.( I say it probably because I am now playing Super Meat Boy.) However, easy as it is, the game is still creative. Do not judge its difficulty until you meet the green one. Yet I have to admit that sometimes, the move is quite trivial. But it does not ever make me want to quit this game. (Yes. I am talking about Super Meat Boy!!!)


4. Perfect game +1
For achievement hunters, this is the game you never want to miss. I spent 4 hours to finished the game and less than 10 minutes later to unlock all the achievements.


End too quick. I am totally not ready for an end!!!

The puzzles within the game are amazing. The different cubes are given names and they have their own abilities that help with solving each puzzle. Also, there is a British narrator for each level. Overall, this is a really amazing game!

There are squares. And rectangles. And somehow you care about them, even though they don't even talk. Interestingly enough, this isn't a character-driven game, it's all about the platforming. But there is a narrator that guides you through the levels. A fun little game with that "just one more level" factor.

A solid little puzzler with a great and underplayed narrative.

Highly recommended for people of all ages, who just want to kick back and puzzle their way to freedom.

Playing this with a controller instantly teleported me back to the early 90s sitting in front of the living room tv playing video games. Such a fantastic feeling!

OK, I see why people like this game. I didn't like it as much as I thought. I'm no good at platformers and I didn't connect with the multiple coloured cubes, but I appreciate what they were trying to do and how good the game is. The music and voiceover is beautiful, truly amazing. The platforming is superb, which is good, seen as though it's a platformer. I'm not keen on the story though, I mean, I find it hard to get on an emotional level with a Red Rectangle and a Yellow Cube.

I still reccomend it because the controls are tight and new mechanics are always thrown in to keep the game fresh.

Thomas Was Alone is a simplistic platformer with an entertaining narrational
story. The music sets the atmosphere perfectly, and leads you into really caring
for the blocks that constitute your characters.

The platforming mechanic is basic, but fair, with many savepoints so you
are not drawn out of immersion. There is a sense of satisfaction as you defeat
each challenge, and a sense of adventure as you progress. The narration is well
done, and succeeds wonderfully in having you connect on an emotional level with
the characters.

The combination of well written narrative, beautiful music, and simple
yet challenging platforming all weave together to make an entertaining game
that is easy to recommend.

This is a game about geometrical coloured shapes, who try to find a meaning to their adventures, and end up forming a gang. It is humoristically narrated by Danny Wallace, who really adds a dimension to the game that manages to make us empathize and feel for these little rectangles and square.

It's a platforming puzzle game, it's very simplistic in nature, but efficient, and the Musical Score by David Housden is beautiful and enhances the game quite a lot.

I enjoyed it.

Even though it has a very simple design and the actual puzzles are pretty easy, I really enjoyed the story that is told.
It may seem like it is just about different coloured shapes, but that isn't entirely true because each of these shapes has its own name and a special ability, which makes them more "human" than just normal shapes (if that makes any sense).

Thomas Was Alone is a great platformer, I liked it.

the game ,,thomas was alone,, is a curious mix between platforming and puzzles. the characters are small computer quadrilaterals (each referred to as an ,,ai,,) who are achieving sentience and are trying to make sense of their abstract world, their purpose and interract with others. as the player, you can make them move and jump to pass by obstacles, solve logic puzzles and thus progress through the game. for the most part, these require thinking and reasoning, rather than lightning reflexes, although there are one or two parts which require a bit of practice. there are only a few places which are time-limited and require quick action. although simple, the execution of this game is highly polished and very elegant. the narration is superb, and brings the characters to life (often in a humerous way). there is a lovely soundtrack too. this game was recommended to me by harry and i agree with his choice and am thus recommending it to everyone else. enjoy.

Enough has been said already about this game, and the reviews are pretty accurate in my opinion; Thomas Was Alone is a marvellous title, not only for its puzzle-platformer mechanics but -specially- for its narration and music.

As you move these rectangular figures with different capabilities in a try to solve the level, a voice over will be telling you the story behind each one of them. The narration succeeds incredibly in making the player care about these -now called- characters. This is coupled with outstanding sound design, including a well-done sound track.

The game is rather short, but the assortment of levels give an interesting final product. Achievements are quite easy to get, so it provides a good opportunity for achievement-hunters.

On the negative side, physics often become a bit unstable on moving platforms. Also, despite music being awesome, it sometimes sounds as if multiple tracks where overlapping which turns out to be a bit on the annoying side. Finally, I personally didn't get or like the ending. Even after playing the extra chapter.

All in all, a super enjoyable, surprising and superb piece of art. Recommended.

The puzzles are not that hard , sometimes when you progress it even gets easier but the story , the narrator and the characterization of Thomas and his colorful friends are enough to keep you in the game.

10/10 - P.S: Chris is worthless

This is probably one of the greatest games that I have ever played. With a great soundtrack and gameplay that makes you think is several different ways, about the game and the puzzles, It is a truly unmissable game. 10/10

A great game, platforming reminds me a lot of FEZ and narrating reminds me of Bastion. Bought another copy! ;-)
