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

Ce spun criticii

“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

Despre acest joc

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.

Simplicity, a lot of heart, good intentions, and a fantastic voice full of personality...

How can it be that you end considering some squares your friends???

Maybe we are never alone.

Thomas Was Alone is a truly indie gem.

In this game you guide a group of rectangles, each one with a unique skill, through dozens of puzzle-platformer levels. There's a beautiful story about friendship and cooperation that will let you hooked on the screen. The music, composed by David Housden, is touching and helps to create an incredible immersive feeling. Thomas Was Alone last just a few hours, but it's very enjoyable if you like this genre.

I've always seen this game on sale but never bought it until I see it in a bundle of my interest. Don't do like I did. If you really love the concept of games as an art, you should play Thomas Was Alone right now. It's fantastic!

This is a platformer/puzzle game. You have to take some blocks (each one with a different color, shape and skill) to their shadows. Some stages are easy, some stages are very hard and some stages are very frustrating. The puzzles are well created and very challenging. The game visuals are great and the gameplay is easy and simple. I believe it's easier using a controller. Great sound effect, music and voice. Really enjoyed this game and hope they do a sequel. Didn't want it to end. I recommend!

"Psychoanalysis of colored jumping blocks".

I don't remember any of the colored blocks and which names they have. Just Thomas is in average height and with average jumping abilities. Thomas, the orange block and main character of this weird little jump'n' run adventure.

Although this game has minimalistic graphics, the look and feel is very impressive and unique.
The background music is chillout, but for mainly the narrator tells you an endless monologue of friendship and relationship between different blocks. It becomes pretty philosophic like "which is the purpose of life?" or "who am I really?" But you mustn't ever follow the story. Rather concentrate on the challenging jump sequences and sometimes occuring logical puzzles and you'll beat this not too hard game perfectly in a few hours.

In the end, I certain don't reveal too much, Thomas wasn't alone ...

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!

I actually passed on this game many times, until a friend recommended it to me. After actually looking into the game a bit more, I realized it was something that would really interest me. When I finally played it, I was pleasantly surprised.

If you like an interesting storyline following unique "characters," puzzle platforming requiring lots of planning, and witty narration, then you will like this game.

1The aesthetics are good - although the characters are simple shapes, the coloring and effects in the background are well-done. The music and sound effects are very nice, adding appropriate vibes to complement the pacing and atmosphere of each level. The narration is very good, and offers the backstory for the characters. If you like storytelling, you may be surprised by how attached you get to simple shapes. The story is also well-written, and each level adds a piece to the puzzle that is the main plot.

The controls are simple and easy to learn, however, mastering the game mechanics can take a while. As you progress through the story, you will meet new shapes - each with their own special ability - and you will have to use each specialty of each shape propely in order to advance to the next level. The learning curve is mostly minimal to moderate - the main difficulty being in how to solve the later puzzles in the game. Later, there are some timing-based puzzles involved. There are usually checkpoints to help you continue on if death in parts of a level is a possibility. I am currently stuck on a level that requires both timing and careful planning = it is the level where Thomas and the green shape must mirror each others paths or else one (or both of them) will "fall" to a bed of spikes and die. It's taking a while mostly because there are no checkpoints and I get impatient if I die before reaching the end portals.

For achievement hunters, this game has fairly easy achievements (most are progression-based), the hardest ones to acquire being the jump count ones; however, you will most likely get all of them through progression in the game.

The puzzles are challenging and increase in difficulty at a reasonable, fair pace. You are also (usually) shown basic concepts for what to do in easier levels before you encounter them again in subsequent levels (with more difficult puzzles). So long as you pay attention to how you are solving each puzzle, you should have little trouble solving each stage. Trial and error also helps a great deal.

Overall, the game adds a nice flavor to puzzle platforming, and projects a minimalist, serene feeling while you play. Puzzle enthusiasts should definitely give this one a try.

Highly recommend!

Cheers,

This game might not look like much, but it’s got a very good story! The only characters in the game are a bunch of rectangles, but you’ll start to care for them by the end of the game.

The platforming gameplay isn’t anything too special, and is often quite buggy too, but it’s worth playing for the story and atmosphere. It’s also short enough to finish in one sitting (4 hours), if you like short games.

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.

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!

Platformers are fun. Story is fun. You know you like both.

Listen to these rectangles. Meet one, then another, then more, and more. Fall in love with the story these rectangles tell.

You will be a better person for playing this game. (but remember, they're just shapes.)

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 fun little game about rectangles. The levels are well made and with an x-box 360 controller the controls works wonderfully (would assume the same goes for keyboard players).

The narrator has a suiting voice and makes you generally root for the little guys.

In my opinion it's a must have for players who love platforming games, unfortunately though the game isn't that long and only took my abour 3 hours to 100% the game, so I would recommend getting it on sale.
