The developer Benjamin Rivers, who created the hit game Home has done it once again with Alone With You which reminds me of the great DOS games of the past and a bit of Lenny Walkabout in some ways and it doesn’t let up.
Your character is nameless but everyone else plays a huge part in this sci-fi romance tale and everything just works perfect. You get missions from the AI and investigate one place per day since you have a limited amount of days to complete the mission but where you go per day doesn’t matter. But what does is the choices you make throughout the game itself.
The art style is amazing and so well done. Home was original and made you think while Alone With You keeps you going with the style and its story progression. After a mission you get to go to the hologram area and talk and get to know parts of the character associated with that mission and even later on you get a free day to know whatever character even more.
The music fits in as well and all the small details like the rain to your character’s movement is really good. I don’t want to spoil the story but the basics is you are finishing up what the others started and figuring out what happened to them while repairing your ship and collecting food and more to survive.
Alone With You boots up quick and going from area to area loads quick and looking at the short cutscenes when you sleep, go through doors and more you will see frequently and don’t take a lot of time.
If you liked Home you will love Alone With You even more as you investigate caves, bio-domes and relay towers to complete a mission and collect items. You even have some puzzles to complete but they aren’t hard as long as you pay attention to what is around you. Alone With You is a must get for PS Vita owners.
