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

Recenzje

“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

O tej grze

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.

this game is something like 2D Portal. there is a lot of reviews when you can find words like "life" or "story" and there they are in fact. so it's not an empty "another-jumping-thing" - this game forces you to think, use each character (pity that there is no multiplayer co-op), look onto each pixel and sometimes even make steps like geisha to finish the level. more games of that kind :)
please ;)

THOMAS WAS ALONE - A beautiful, minimalist indie 2D puzzle/platformer.

|| 8.5 ||
Score Comment
Graphics 8 Simple but pleasing, using clean lines and shapes to form the game levels. Game Characters are also simple shapes with different colours but are easily identifiable. Background colours and effects have a different pallet for each level. The overall effect is minimalist, stylish and elegant.
Audio 10 Relaxing ambient background music throughout the game and excellent story narration by Danny Wallace (He won a BAFTA for his performance). There really is nothing to fault here.
Gameplay 9 Thomas was alone has simple and intuitive controls that respond well, giving good control of your characters. Levels start simply and get progressively more difficult at a fairly steady rate. I don't ever recall feeling overwhelmed at any point and play remained very enjoyable throughout the game. As you progress the game does a good job of introducing you to new concepts that you need to complete the levels like controlling various elements (doors, gravity, etc) through various pressure and trigger switches. Also as you progress you meet and gain control of other characters (besides Thomas) each of which have their own unique properties and abilities. You will often find that you will need to employ skill & logic as well as a bit of trial and error to successful navigate levels but fortunately the game does not punish you for failing, so play always seems fun.
Story 9 I really didn't expect any kind of story from a puzzle platform game, especially not one where the characters are just little shapes, but despite this what I got was a brilliant one. A delightful little story that builds with each level and makes you really care about what happens to your little shapes. Each one has their own unique characters, fears, desires and personalities. Their struggles to survive and escape the unfair system that imprisons them and which is constantly changing the rules in its efforts to defeat them.
Replayability 6 By the end of the game you will have mastered some pretty advanced skills and will remember many of the puzzles solutions, this makes some of the earlier levels feel very easy. The game is of a fairly good length but because its so enjoyable you will no doubt be left wanting more. There are various steam achievements (small black hollow rectangles) scattered throughout various levels and going back to find these will add to the playtime. Levels are re-playable after you have completed them making it a good game for quick casual play.
Overall
8.5 A little gem of an indie game, charming and enjoyable, it leaves you wanting more - would highly recommend.

I have this game for a while already and always thought it's some kind of boring platform game with retro-stylish graphics. Anyway i had some time few days ago and decided to give it a try. To my surprise, Thomas Was Alone proved to be a great, very addictive and a bit challenging title. It has a lot of nicely prepared levels with tons of smart ideas.

Not too hard, not too easy - level design is perfectly balanced.
I got it from bundle of course, just like most of indie games nowadays (which starts to be "pain-in-the-a*s"), but i
wouldn't hesitate to spend £6 on it.

My rating: 8/10

p.s. I loved to bounce on Laura.

“If our brains were simple enough for us to understand them, we'd be so simple that we couldn't.” - Discovering Simplicity in a Complex World

This is a minimalist indie puzzle platformer, but don't let that dissuade you as it touches on human struggles and issues such as individuality and accepting who we are, experiencing and dealing with loneliness, finding and cherishing companionship, discovering and pursuing one's purpose in life no matter how simple or grandiose the dream and leaving a legacy for generations to come.

The music is touching, evoking empathy in the player and making you want to root for the characters in their journey. On top of that, the narration by Danny Wallace is charming and funny throughout the play-through. The gameplay is also well balanced, not too easy or difficult to keep one engaged but not lose sight of the story either.

Very highly recommended 11/10

Thomas Was Alone is a great platform puzzler. You have different characters who come in the shape of blocks. Different shapes and different abilities. You must figure out how to use these different shapes and abilities to get to the end of each level. The puzzle portion of the game is definitely closer to the casual end of the spectrum than the hardcore end. However, one of the unique aspects of the game is how shapes of different colors, sizes and abilities can have such a deep story told. Typically puzzle games do not have a strong story, nor does a story without real characters typically take place in games. Somehow, the devs figured out how to put it all together and it really makes the game shine. Great game, great price, great entertainment.

I get why it's a popular game - there is character development in a game consisting of multi-colored squares. You do care about the characters when you play the game, and that's interesting because many games, even with the best graphics avalable on gaming hardware, have lost the art of storytelling and character development.

That said, TWA is a 3-4 hour (short), simple/easy puzzle-platformer that, ironically, doesn't give a lot of closure or development to it's story. The game almost feels unfinished, it is so short, and, despite the fact I am by no means a really "great" gamer or anything, all of the levels are very easy, taking maximum of 2-3 tries of planning really, and then maybe 2-3 tries on execution once you've found a plan.

Simply, it's highly overrated

Thomas was alone is a real gem. It's a relatively simple 2D "puzzle" game which is however really deep in terms of content and story. Get it, install it, play it and let it overwhelm you with its amazing voice acting, incredibly interesting story, and fun 2D moves.

Super-recommended!

Thomas Was Alone is a truly amazing game with awesome narrative and fun gameplay. You take control of various shapes that have different powers to complete each level by platforming or solving some simple puzzles. The gameplay is very simple, but very satisfying that makes you connect to the different shapes through emotion and the story. The game is short (even with the 2 bonus chapters), it took me ~3 hours to beat. I wish I played this game much earlier, I highly recommend it!

A lovely game, it's extremely simple, but yet has a wonderful story line. The music is beautiful and it's amazing how such little detail can make a game so amazing.

"It would all be down to seven rectangles with very different relationships to gravity."

A game, I think, about perspective, different personalities, and carrying your friends forward. A game about how your weakness, among friends, can become your strength.

Superb narration. Fitting music that isn't too intrusive or repetitive (though there is a bug, I think if you use scenario select the main menu music may loop over the level's music).

The game takes around 4-5 hours to finish, not including DLC which I expect would take one additional hour.

Puzzles aren't too hard, I never got stuck on any for longer than 5-10 minutes. But this isn't really a game about mindbendingly difficult puzzles, it's more about the characters that solve them, and how the characters and the levels themselves are, at times, a visual metaphor for events and emotions in the story.

A cohesive experience. Uplifting and heartwarming, with a charming sense of humor.

Cute.
