Thomas Was Alone is a relatively easy minimalist 2D puzzle platformer about rectangles moving up and to the right, sometimes down, sometimes to the left, has a narrator who gives personality to these rectangles, and is without a doubt my favorite game of all time.
Character driven story about learning about anxiety, depression, friendship, love, and highly uplifting by the end of it. You will know each character as if you knew them in real life because they are so relatable to either you or someone you know. This is what makes the game stand out.
The narrator and writing brings a lot of charm and humor in the appropriate moments.
The soundtrack brings the emotion out to help the feelings of the characters
Danny Wallace nails the performance! His voice is gentle but can be hilarious, heartbroken, or happy at any time.
Basic platforming, it's easy to control and nothing really wrong with it. But nothing new gameplay wise.
Some challenging levels, but most of them are pretty straightforward to experience the story.
Many ask "How one may ask when I've played games like Bioshock Infinite, The Walking Dead, Final Fantasy VII, and Portal?" The reasoning is how the narration, description of the characters, music, and lighting/symbolism of each level all meld together to appear as simple, but overall has very complicated emotions that not many games have brought. The minimalism allows a better focus on the story and our characters emotions, and I have never felt so attached to a character as much as here, and these a rectangles! I really can't write a review that will do justice to this game, go and buy it!
