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

Análisis

“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

Acerca de este juego

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.

Thomas Was Alone.

Este simpático juego cuenta la historia de Thomas, (un rectángulo rojo) y sus aventuras y desventuras en la matriz de código.

Estamos ante un plataformas con puzles con estética minimalista y la verdad es que hace muy bien su trabajo en ambos campos. No es que sea un platformer hardcore ni nada por el estilo, de hecho todo lo contrario; es relajante y realmente no supone mucha dificultad mas allá de ciertos niveles que nos harán pensar un poco. Pero eso no tiene por qué estar mal, y de hecho muchos jugadores que no están tan experimentados en plataformas agradecerán el excelente diseño de la curva de dificultad.

Este tipo de juegos suelen ser cortos por lo general y Tomas Was Alone no es una excepción. No obstante, cumple sus premisas y aunque deja con ganas de más, es una experiencia entretenida y completa.

Obviamente hay miles de plataformas y miles de juegos de puzles que combinan ambos géneros, pero qué hace a Tomas Was Alone sobresalir entre sus congéneres?
  • Las mecánicas:
    Las mecánicas de Tomas Was Alone están diseñadas de forma muy creativa,, ya que más que apoyarse en el escenario se apoya en todos los personajes controlables del juego y sus interacciones. Nunca acaba aburriendo, por que siempre vamos a tener nuevas mecánicas y nuevas interacciones que llevar a cabo, y eso es uno de los puntos fuertes del juego.

  • La historia:
    Es bastante inusual que un juego de este tipo estea vertebrado por la historia, ya que la gran mayoría directamente no tienen dicha trama principal. Ése no es el caso, ya que posee una historia que francamente me ha encandilado desde el primer momento y ha sido uno de los principales ganchos del juego durante todos sus niveles. Está muy bien escrita y el doblaje es excelente, la verdad es que es increíble la inmersión que logra en un juego de este tipo. La historia la lleva el ya mencionado narrador, que cuenta cómo piensan los personajes que conoceremos y cómo interactuan entre sí. Esto le da una profundidad extra al juego y le ayuda a establecer una personalidad única.

  • El estilo:
    Nos encontramos con un juego con estilo minimalista y esto queda completamente a merced de si el jugador gusta de dicho estilo o no. Por otra parte, es un estilo que se adapta muy bien a este género y a mí personalmente me gusta. El contraste de los colores y las animaciones de los escenarios ayudan a darle un toque muy elegante al juego.
    Pero no nos olvidemos de la musica! Es muy buena. No es nada repetitiva y se adapta a las situaciones del juego pero siempre conservando una fibra muy relajante y grata al oído. Canela en rama.
Pero obviamente, hay cosas malas...

-El diseño de niveles no es precisamente espectacular, sobre todo teniendo en cuenta el trabajo que le han puesto a lo demás.
-No hay rejugabilidad más allá de conseguir ciertos coleccionables que son muy obvios.
-El juego no es demasiado largo (4 horas completarlo al 100%) y siento que podrían haberlo alargado mucho más, las bases tienen mucho potencial.
-Hay un bug que hace que varias canciones se solapen, aunque con hacer restart llega.


Y la pregunta es... ¿Vale los 7.99 que pide steam por él?

Sí, los vale. No obstante, recomiendo esperar a que lo rebajen por si decepciona (no lo hará) o simplemente no tenéis mucho suelto.
En resumen, Tomas Was Alone es un fantástico juego de puzles muy inusual que te hará pasar un rato entretenido y probablemente te hará reír un par de veces. Lo recomiendo.

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 (I've been told the narrator might be the same one for The Stanley Parable), then you will like this game.

The 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,

I really, really enjoyed this game. It doesn't matter how high a budget is for a game or how large the development team is, so long as you have a good idea in your head an amazing product is possible, Thomas Was Alone proves that.

Thomas Was Alone (in a nutshell) is an Indie platformer where you have to use the unique abilities of each colored shape to overcome obstacles and puzzles. For a game that has such a simple graphics style and very basic gameplay, it has a very compelling and wonderful storyline and atmosphere, and yet even though I don't quite understand the story completely, this game is powerful, it makes you feel for the characters since they go through a ton of character development, even though they're only quadrilaterals... I know, I know, but trust me, this game is worth your time.

The narration voice acting is very well done and so full of character, this game probably has the best narrative I've ever heard in any game, and not just in the Indie genre. The voiceover tells the story of Thomas Was Alone in a witty, charismatic manner as you play and overcome the obstacles ahead leaving you hungry for more of the dialog as you play through the game.

There is very little to fault about this game, I do however think that £6.99 is somewhat of a steep price considering there isn't much length to the game, but I still say that this is worth your time and money. If you are an Indie game collector, enjoy platformers or a compelling story/narrative, this is the game for you.

"Thomas Was Alone" is a minimalistic platformer in which you control multiple rectangles to reach the the exit position for each of them.

While you play the many levels, a really good narrator holds a monolog about friendship, emotions and the purpose of life, giving the simple, colored rectangles with a special ability each a real personality.

Neither the puzzles nor the platforming are very challenging, but the game is very charming and definitely is unique in it's own way. It's pretty expensive for the short playtime, but if it's on sale, I recommend "Thomas Was Alone".

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.

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.

This is probably one of the most emotional, inspiring puzzle games I have ever played. I never would have thought I could be so engaged by moving a few different sized blocks on the screen but the narration, story and soundtrack all work together to create a beautiful game that will makes you glad you finished it even if the puzzles can be a pain sometimes.

Thomas Was Alone is a minimalist puzzle platformer. Playing it was an unique experience.

The gameplay is simple, in this game you guide a group of rectangles, each one with a unique skill, through many puzzle-platformer levels. You have to guide the rectangles to the portal of each one. Each rectangle is different, some of them can jump higher, some lower, some can swim, bounce others like a trampoline, double jump or even defy gravity, but no one is useless. However, this game is short and easy, because it is focused on telling a very interesting story about friendship and cooperation that will keep you hooked and you will feel connected with the rectangles.

The minimalistic design is very well-done, looks very clean and beautiful. The soundtrack is great, together with the not difficult gameplay feels like a relaxing game and the voiceover is very good and a bit funny.

I recommend this game, casual, fun and with a great story, 9/10.

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.

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.

Personal Rating: 7/10

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.

Worth:Big discount                      Memorability:So-so
Aesthetic:Lacking                      Audio:Excellent

Pros:Thomas Was Alone controls well, and has an interesting story. It is of reasonable length, so you get what you pay for in content. The puzzles are relaxed and do not serve much of a challenge, but are not so easy that it feels like an empty vessel for an Indie story similar games. The dialogue is almost entirely voiced. Soundtrack ist wunderbar.

Cons:The hype is strong with this one. Ending is very anticlimactic. Though Danny Wallace is humorous, his role is to monologue in a rambley fashion. Store page awkwardly boasts "amazing jump controls" repeatedly because there is not much else to speak of in regards to gameplay.

Overall:If you can enjoy the ride, the lack of pay-off may not bother you. The atmosphere in this game is serene and the music is good, so it's a good game for winding down. However, I would never pay $10.00USD for what is essentially a prettied-up Kongregate Flash Game.
