    Review Thomas Was Alone

    Simple brilliance

    We're in the middle of one of the most diverse, intriguing periods in video game history. The rise of download games, small 'indie' developers and stores like the Wii U eShop have shifted how we think about content; we're a long way from the retail-only culture of the '90s or even early 2000s.

About The Game

The critically acclaimed indie platformer about friendship and jumping.

Thomas Was Alone is the critically acclaimed indie platformer about friendship and jumping. Guide a group of sentient rectangles through a series of environments, combining their skills to reach the end of each level.

Listen to awesome music by David Housden, negotiate obstacles meticulously placed by Mike Bithell and immerse yourself in the characters' journey with a voiceover read wistfully and amusingly by Danny Wallace.

Features:

  • 120 levels.
  • 15 playable characters, each with unique characteristics and abilities.
  • Story narrated by Danny Wallace.
  • Soundtrack by critically acclaimed composer David Housden.
  • Commentary for every level by creator Mike Bithell.
