    I bet you can still remember some of the faces of the shleps you grew up with. But who knows, maybe your story is different. Maybe you were raised by wolves or were locked in the basement until you ...

    The perfect blend of art, sound, gameplay, and narrative make this game a puzzle-platformer that should not be ignored.

    Thomas Was Alone is simplistic rather than simple.

    Rated on May 27, 2013 by LoG-Sacrament

    Before I start, I have to establish a couple things. A simple game is one that wastes no effort on superfluous aspects and still manages to be a fulfilling game. Simple games are efficient, elegant, a...

    Never have I cared so much about the lives of rectangles

    Rated on June 04, 2013 by GaudyMarrko

    Right off the bat I'm going to say that the overall game play for this game is kind of forgettable and bland. It's a puzzle plat-former so games like N+ and Limbo stick out as being better in terms of...

    Great idea, just a tad too short

    Thomas Was Alone is a landmark title in video game storytelling, despite suffering from a number of design problems.

    A simple but engaging title, Thomas Was Alone proves fancy graphics do not make a great story shine.

    Rated on August 15, 2013 by danny_dm_moore

    Thomas Was Alone is an interesting title, even in the realm of indie gaming and the myriad of strange and entertaining games that is produced there. It is a platformer with an engaging story to tell, ...

    The narration is interesting, but doesn't hide the fact the game is simplistic and bland

    Rated on August 19, 2013 by Ignition_jammy

    Thomas Was Alone is a puzzle platformer involving a group of various quadrilaterals each with different properties and jumping ability. The graphics are simplistic, the game-play can vary and the stor...

    A short but simple puzzle-platformer that's worth playing

    Rated on August 30, 2013 by benleslie5

    For an Indie game I was quite impressed how good Thomas Was Alone for a game which was on PC/Steam to begin with and then getting a release on PS3 and PS Vita a few months later. For a puzzle-platform...
