Default Thomas Was Alone (by Bossa Studios)





Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up


Apparently launching today for 5.99

Seen loads about this game, but never played it. Its been rejigged for iPad with a new control scheme and sharper graphics.

Worth getting? What sort of game is it?

EDIT: Just watched a vid review of the PS3/Vita version and seems pretty cool. Might pick this up.

Wow, getting a huge David. and that dying cube game vibe. I wonder if it's worth the price? The reviews in the description has really piqued my interest.

Wow has impressive reviews.

I might have to (gulp) back up my rants about people waiting for cheap prices and buy this (surprised at the higher price !).

But yeah had great reviews, i'll watch the videos in a bit and probably get it soon

Yes, this game looks like a must buy, but I am not sure an INSTABUY. Unless people are going to start comparing this game to the room and monument valley for its magicness, I think I may wait a little on this.

It looks magical, I'm praying that it is. I need my fix
It's strange that it's ipad only. It definitely looks like it would fit on an iPhone. Bummer.

Yeah it's a nifty indie game that was also released on Vita. Everyone should give it a try because it has so much charm. There's also a narrator that tells a story during the game.

Oh, that explains the price. It's a port.

Default Game Impressions

Just checked my Steam account and low and behold its one of the hundreds of unplayed (undownloaded even!) games I have.

Just installed it and yea, its definitely very cool. Basic platformer, 100 levels (though not too much challenge according to the review I saw), but the narration feature (by UK presenter and author Danny Wallace who I really like) is very good as it tells the story of the characters during each level.

I dont think I'd drop 5.99 on it personally now I know I have it anyways, but can see why they want it to be seen as a premium game as its very nice indeed.

Not sure about how it would control on iPad, but the original developer said he was very happy with the controls on the port. He said he originally ported it a few years ago just using Unity's "export to iPad" feature, but it was horrible and didnt feel right - but the new version is what he wanted it to be.
