Thomas was alone – Review

thomas was alone

Thomas, Chris, John, Claire, Laura, James and Sarah have complex almost soap opera relationships with one another. A great narrator will make you love some and dislike others. What is special about this? Well those 7 characters are blocks, coloured blocks of different size and shape.

The soundtrack is amazing because of perfectly times Ambient piano sounds.

Then there is the actual game: 100 levels of clever plattforming where you have to chose the right blocks for the reaching the end of each level.  All blocks are clever designed and have their special treat. Blocks have to work together, jumping on each or bouncing away from each other. The levels are challenging but never too hard. Some look very easy but need more thinking than you thought.

Although the graphics are simple they don’t feel cheap. They feel well designed with a nice zen touch to it.

Lovely indie game with about 5-6 hours to finish it.

Software engineer by day and gamer by night. I fall into the group of casual core adult gamers and prefer video games over TV. I tend to play almost exclusively on PC but have a 3DS for offline situations like holidays. Being an adult gamer means that I have only limited time for video games, around 5-10 hours per week. I mostly enjoy playing short narrative or puzzle games from independent developers but will occasionally pick up a narrative heavy game from a big publisher. I enjoy talking about the Indie gems I played and once a month I will dive deep into one video game related topic with an essay.
