    brialinza's Thomas Was Alone (PC)

    [April 13, 2017 12:59:46 AM]
    I feel like this was a wonderful resolution to the game! To sum it up, basically Thomas and the crew fulfilled their mission, and started helping those after them into "escaping" as it were. There was one, "Gray" as he was called, who was lusty for power, but had been eaten up by the black pixel cloud.

    I think this game provides an amazing depiction of how AIs can be "programmed" so to speak, so that they have good morals. To be able to raise them in an environment where they understand teamwork, kindness, and all the other emotions both positive and negative. In the end, it is all about the interactions of other individuals that builds the characters. I feel like because of this, this is very realistic.

    A very thoughtful game, that is for certain!

    This playthrough I have gotten to part 7.10. To recap, basically all the characters were eaten up by a black pixel cloud, starting with Thomas. The beautiful music didn't change, so the emotions I felt could be described as "oh, I guess that just happened." When it was bringing up the emotions of the other characters, though, that's where this game was able to strike a chord in me a bit. Not enough to make me wail on my computer, but something where I got a little more emotionally involved in the story of the game.

    So none of the characters died, they were just moved elsewhere I suppose. It is obvious now that this is an AI system, or something, what with the narration. Where I have left off, Thomas and the crew (with two new characters) are working to escape/help the other AI in any way they can.

    So far, this game has a very nice storytelling mechanic. In my opinion, it is not as good as The Talos Principle or Life is Strange, but it is still nice and enjoyable. At the beginning of the game, it leaves everything off all mysterious-like, and the narration starts by saying how Thomas was alone. For some reason, this evoked a bit of an emotion for me even though the game didn't even start yet.

    The puzzle mechanics of the game are very interesting, and not exactly what I expected with being able to switch characters! I have played through to the end of part 3, and I have to say, this ominous black pixel cloud (as described as similar to a white cell virus in side text?) it bringing a new kind of suspension to the game. Overall however, this hasn't been all that stressful and the music is nice as well!
