    Miraiart12a4's Thomas Was Alone (PC)

    [February 23, 2017 09:48:03 AM]
    I finished Thomas was alone. The after being rescued by James and meeting with Sara to and finding the "Fountain" which Sara sought. Thomas learned how he could rescue his friends but that ultimately, they could not escape. However they did find a way to grant abilities to other AI and maybe, give them a chance to escape, but they would cease to exist. These personalities chose to sacrifice themselves for others. The other AI with the ability to see the exit, a goal to strive for became affected. Grey's discovered that he wanted to get to the goal, and he wanted to get there first and that he'd be willing to do anything for it. Jo and Sam followed Grey to help him (though deceived) and went through the exit themselves. By showing the way out to the other AI, it created a desire for them. This last section showed that desire is not always good. It has the ability to warp people and make them corrupt. The Old Man, who was left behind by Grey, chased to stop him from doing anything drastic. A desire to stop someone who would do bad things to get their desire. Interesting twist of morality.

    I played through the arc where Chris Meets Laura to when Sarah is introduced to James and Thomas. At this point in the narrative, Chris is very in love with Laura but she's being followed by a strange pixel cloud. When Laura meets with the others, most of them are wary of the pixel cloud and the arrival of Laura, but they choose to not do anything because they are trying to be understanding of Chris (their friend) and his feelings for Laura. Putting the safety of the group at risk for their friend. And before Thomas has a chance to say anything, he's taken away by the cloud. The game creates these personalities that interact in a way that shows that they encounter dilemmas where they must decide between helping one another, or clash in disagreement. Because you the player are solving the levels, they must be cooperating. After the group has been completely swallowed up, Thomas meets James who is insecure of his abilities, however Thomas is fascinated by James. Thomas is genuine in his interactions, and James feels encouraged in helping Thomas.

    For the first 30 minutes of Thomas was alone, I played through the beginning until Chris meets Laura. I like how the game introduces these AI, as characters with unique personalities. The narrative helps give this work life, as we see this struggle made by the AI, and the quotations of these programmers (scientists?) who see the AI as a bug in the system. There was one level in the game that stood out to me. Its one of the levels when John (The long, athletic, egotistical rectangle) can jump past a button and fall past to area where he couldn't backtrack. I was testing to see if any of the narrative would change, but the game makes the assumption that the player WILL push the button to help the other characters proceed. Also, overthinking the bug, if John doesn't help the other Characters, none of them could proceed.
