No one would mistake Thomas Was Alone for a AAA release, but don’t hold its relatively short length and abstract graphics against it. The game plays to its strength with clever puzzles and cleverer writing. Once you get to really know these mild-mannered cubes, you’ll want to follow their adventure all the way to the end.

Those topics sound heady and maybe a little pretentious, but Thomas Was Alone's humor nudges the script away from being overly self-serious. Between the jokes, the writing and the soundtrack — which alternates between dissonant scratches and transcendent melodies per each scene — it hooked into my emotions. Thomas Was Alone's gameplay doesn't push any boundaries. But where most games can't make me care about "lifelike" human characters, Thomas Was Alone invested me in faceless squares and rectangles.

When the curtain finally closed on Thomas Was Alone, I couldn’t help but feel touched. Despite being two-dimensional in appearance, the game’s cast of characters exuded more personality and depth than that of some games propped up by millions of dollars of development funding. I’m not usually the kind to buy into such alternate approaches to game design often exercised by indies but something about Thomas Was Alone really struck a chord with me.
