Thomas, was alone. A simple red rectangle, curious and observant, explores his surroundings to figure out why he is where he is. It isn't long however, before Thomas finds others much like himself - and yet, strangely, with differing abilities. As he discovers more of the world, Thomas realises that he is more than just a rectangle, and that the world is more than just a flat 2D space.

Thomas Was Alone is a 2D platformer with an ongoing narration in which simple geometrical objects are brought to life with a story that touches the emotional core.

A hilarious experience of being flat as a rectangle. I literally got the feeling of viewing the world with a body having the backbone same as the stomach and being flat as a paper. Initially, in the imagination of the maker, I thought even I would go flat and solve the mystery of being so, in the world of Thomas itself. Though the game is named, Thomas was alone. I was always standing by him and experiencing the illusion world created by the gamer. I was converted to 2D by flattening myself, but I was experiencing a 5D effect by actually playing it.

Thomas Was Alone will not win any awards for complexity, graphics, or mind boggling gameplay. What this game does offer is a compelling story that invites players into the intimate thoughts of creatures we believed didn't have thoughts at all. A game players won't talk about, but will think about.

Better and more memorable characterization that most games I've played this decade. While the overall platforming is simplistic and not very challenging, TWA is a quick play that demonstrates all you need to tell a good story is heart and enthusiasm.

Simple, minimalistic, but charming and relaxing. Each character - just a colored rectangle - has a personality, a backstory and a talent, which makes them unique. Physics is incredible in this game - falling, bouncing and swimming feels so good and natural. A quiet soundtrack will help you stay calm if you get stuck on some tricky level.
