Рецензії

“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

Про цю гру

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 has better characterizatoion than most movies released this decade. Thomas was alone can run on almost any system, regardless of the specs. It has a great narrator (Danny Wallace) who just brings the game to life, and has tight/responsive controls that just make this game feel so clean. I'd recommend this game to everyone, especially for the price at which it cost to buy.

Love the game. Amazing narration. It's truly astonishing how attched you become to simple shapes. Well worth the pay.

Chris sucks though. Hate Chris.

Thomas Was Alone is a brilliant example of how narrative and characterization can enhance what could otherwise be a generic platformer. The soundtrack combined with the lovable characters (despite them being literal rectangles) creates an enjoyable and engaging puzzle platformer that I cannot recommend enough. This game shows that a game with little graphics but a lot of heart can create such a compelling game.

It's an entertaining little platforming Indie game, you can usually find it 75% off. It's got an immersive story, good gameplay and nice music. Provides around 3-4 hours of gameplay.

a great minimalist platformer with many things to love.
the story ties in with the level design, while also providing a challenging puzzle.
there is some really good narration by danny wallace, which compels me to see what happens to the lovable shapes i play as in the game.

I literally have no idea how a game about quadrilaterals has better characters and a better story than most summer blockbusters. This game is really really really good.

I did not find it astonishing; many have found it oh so emotional, but it takes more to move me. Also, the platforming is not particularly memorable. However, I have to concede the characters' different abilities give some interest to the game, the narration is not bad and the minimalistic approach really got me. So yeah, all in all, a good purchase.

Do you like rectangles? Do you REALLY like them? Like... a lot? Don't worry if you don't because after you play this game you will. Unless, you know, you're a heartless monster with no feelings.
You start with Thomas, a lonely rectangle and progressively you end up with a bunch of buddies. Every rectangle possesses a different skill that is useful for completing the level and you have to use their unique physiology and skills switching between ractangles in order to clear the levels.
The voiceover is great and, to me, it is what makes this game unique and fun. Each rectangle has their own very distinct character, worldview, wishes, resons to cooperate with the others etc. It really feels as though they are more than a bunch of differently coloured geometric shapes and I think that's what makes this game immersive. It is a simple puzzle game but it's more than that. You don't use tools, you use characters and you try to help them move through levels hoping they get rewarded at the end of the game. When you push the controls you put them where they want to be; you are helping them. You're not just going through game levels, you control their AI lives .
The graphics are pretty simple but you don't really need anything more. It's easy for the eyes and easy for the ears because the music is just a relaxing background thing that exists without distracting you from your important quest to lead the fellowship of the squares somewhere (even though you're not sure where and you don't really know what will happen in the end).
The design is good, the music is good and follows the story, the voiceover is great, the story is superb, the characters rather likeable and other than some weird voice track when some levels finish everything is fine. The learning curve was good as well and most puzzles were rather easy but with enough challenge to them to not be boring.
The second most importans thing about this game (after rectangles) is jumping. Short jumps, long jumps, each reactangle having different jumping skills and some being proud or ashamed according to how far they can jump. And I found the jumps more reliable here than at many other platformers. Then come the puzzles and the teamork. If there's a moral in this game it's that you sometimes need friends to help you and it's ok accepting their help and that a lonely rectangle is not a happy rectangle.
Overall it is a game really good at what it is. No enemies, no shooting, no frustration, just a 2d puzzle with some shapes with human personalities and emotions. I've been meaning to play this game for some time so I'm happy it didn't end up disappointing me.
10/10 would hang out with Thomas and his gang.

Short but Sweet

Man this game. It's relatively old at this point, but it's pretty timeless. I liked it a lot. It's got an interesting (if bizzare) story, and the narration is what really makes it. The platforming is challenging, but can be frustrating at times, however it's very rewarding when you get to hear the next bit of dialogue. Very much recommended, especially to those who think story shouldn't be the main point of a game.

Simple yet beatiful visual design, pleasent sounds, music and voice, well-thought levels and gameplay, and an elementary storyline that is not important at all but still perfectly fits in, make this not just a game but more like a piece of art.

My only reproach is an overly easy difficulty, but in the end it's not a big deal.

10/10

This game is like a journey, you are helping Thomas, along with others, through relationships and things he isn\'t able to explain.
If you\'re searching for a minimalistic, yet very atmospheric game, you won\'t regret getting Thomas Was Alone.

Honestly, the game wasn't fun for me. It felt more like a chore as I went level through level. The narration was enjoyable, and I mildly enjoyed the abstract storytelling of the "AI" quadrilaterals, but the puzzles were too simple, even tedious at times. I didn't feel like I accomplished anything through finishing this game nor getting all of the achievements (which simply required you to look a bit closer at the screen for most of them) that were scattered through the levels.

The music was relaxing to listen to in the background, nothing too extravagant. However, whenever the music changed, the old music would not cease, causing a clashing between multiple songs. I'd need to reload the game in order to reset it, and it would be quite frustrating for me if I didn't do so.

The story it told wasn't too bad. I thought it was humorous and unique to give each quadrilateral a personality and a goal, but the rest was too abstract for my tastes. At the later, later levels, it felt a little bit rushed however. Those who have played to that point may know what I mean.

If you enjoy an easy puzzle game to kill about 3-4 hours of time while listening to a simple story through good narration, you may like the game. But personally? I was hoping for a puzzle game that required some more thinking through what I thought seemed like promising concepts, but it was a more of a story where flipping the pages required your time and tedious "puzzle solving." I bought this game on sale at 75% off, but for its full given price tag, I would not recommend it, nor would I recommend this game to those looking for a challenge in their puzzles that requires more than quick sight and simple action.
