A dramatic story about the plight of rectangles
12 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thomas Was Alone is an adventure that should be tried by anyone young or old; an existential tale of the struggle of the titular Thomas and his rectangular cohorts to find meaning, knowledge, and a path to freedom. A puzzler in more ways than one, including the overall story in general, 'Thomas manages to accomplish so much with so little, giving us a character driven, exciting, narrative with little more than a few shapes; each with a dynamic personality of their own. Themes of futility, love, friendship, jealousy, and much more are explored in such a simple, sterile, environment in a greater and more diverse way than most big budget titles before or since. A huge element in the success of 'Thomas lies in the charming narrative provided by humorist Danny Wallace. His delivery is top notch throughout, providing a unique personality to each of our rectangular heroes with delightful exuberance. All would be for naught if the game was not fun, and thankfully, the game is. The puzzles are perfect in that they are easy enough to not frustrate yet challenging enough to maintain interest to its thrilling yet abruptly vague conclusion. Thomas Was Alone is a mysterious game that anyone looking for something simple yet different should experience right away.
