About The Game

Thomas Was Alone is the critically acclaimed indie platformer about friendship and jumping. Guide a group of sentient rectangles through a series of environments, combining their skills to reach the end of each level.

  • 100 levels
  • 12 playable characters
  • Story narrated by Danny Wallace
  • Soundtrack by critically acclaimed composer David Housden
