Alone With You is an intellectually challenging adventure game with a compelling story, but with a lot of room to grow.

As you can tell by now, I greatly enjoyed my time with the game and plan to go back to it now that my Alone With You review has been completed. The attention to detail, great characters and fun gameplay mechanics make this a must-have game for your collection.

It's a game about loneliness, love, and what it means to be human, and that's a beautiful thing.

Alone With You is very much the typical sci-fi game you would expect it to be. All the ingredients are there, and once they are mixed together it creates an unforgettable gaming experience.

Alone With You is the perfect game for people who want to sit back and enjoy a story that provokes sadness, relief, foreboding, attraction, and everything in between. It’s not a thriller or a fighter. It takes the concept of loneliness and transforms it into an experience that isn’t nearly as boring as it might sound at first. It could be more interactive if it tried, but the strong and complex narrative helps compensate for that—and makes it worth the money.

A very nice visual adventure with deep themes and an original approach to the dating sim genre.

Alone With You might not innovate in the gameplay department, but more than makes up for it with a narrative that'll leave you torn, contemplative, and heartbroken.

Ultimately, Alone with You is a satisfying, if occasionally hard-going, experience. It loses a mark for its saggy middle but it redeems itself with a cast of nuanced characters and a well-earned conclusion. With this title — and horror game, Home — under his belt, it's evident that Benjamin Rivers is a talent to watch and his next game should be anticipated.

Alone With You doesn’t delve as deeply into its existential themes as you might expect, and its romance elements are light, but it still provides an enjoyable experience and an interesting story about the only survivor of a sci-fi disaster.

Your enjoyment of Alone With You will depend greatly on your expectations. If you're taking it as a traditional adventure game, then you'll be left wanting more. You'll spend more of your time walking than solving anything, and the few puzzles that are available present very little challenge. If you're looking for a melancholy sci-fi tale, Alone With You delivers on that expectation quite well. The illusion of choice is broken rather quickly, but the characters and their dialogue more than make up for it, and the intriguing tale comes to some satisfying conclusions. Alone With You is recommended for that latter group, but anyone who's looking for an adventure game that's a bit out of the ordinary should also check it out.

All definitions of 'game' aside, Alone With You is an impressive affair that I recommend to anyone who has an affinity for science fiction narratives and/or interactive storytelling. Its tale is both haunting and human, incisively reflective and extremely well told.

Ben Rivers has drawn a lot from his background working with graphic novels for Alone With You. With its stylized look and great dialogue, AWY is a good adventure that suffers somewhat from the lack of depth of gameplay and repetition in the exploration segments. The high points are the interactions between the characters and AF4B / 3B simulations, which may seem absurd ideas at a distance, but are extremely relatable and human.

While the game is a lot of pointing and clicking the tale that Alone With You tells is absolutely worth experiencing. It was an emotional tale for me and one that left me really pondering some of my choices. I'm looking forward to heading back to the colony to see how making some different choices may alter the outcome. Fans of anything sci-fi and strong narrative driven games shouldn't miss this one.

I'll gladly be replaying this to see the different conversation trees. It's really cool how no two people will have the exact same playthrough, yet the game will still cover the same themes and motifs. This should provide for a lot of conversation in the coming months.

Alone With You sometimes suffers inside of its medium, an understandable impedance of a small project that simply can't be good at everything. Its eagerness to sidestep conventional challenges with singular objectives, however, will last longer than some of its prosaic mechanics. Valuable science fiction maintains a crucial element of humanity, a facet of storytelling Alone With You embraces with, of all possibilities, relatable human beings.

Alone With You tells its somewhat bizarre tale in solid fashion. The story and characters, though sometimes inconsistent, are strong enough to make this a worthwhile piece of interactive fiction.

What's more, I'd be fascinated to see what Rivers could come up with in a more purely narrative-focused format. Indeed, I have no doubt he'd write an excellent visual novel. But whatever he does next, I'll be paying attention.

There's a lot to love in Alone With You: the wonderful art style, the synth soundtrack, the well written story, and the way it touches on interesting subjects being just a few. However, unnecessary padding and busy work really drag the overall enjoyment down.

Alone With You does a really nice job with its narrative, but the actual gameplay mechanics start to wear a little thin by the time the game wraps up. It is a callback to older style adventure games, which I have always had a soft spot for, and Alone With You is no different. It is a good entry into the genre and shows an impressive understanding of what it takes to weave a compelling narrative despite a handful of shortcomings.

What is does get abundantly right is its unique tone, powerful narrative, masterful writing, and a visual style that fooled me into underestimating it makes it worthy of praise.

Alone With You is overall a narrative driven game that is severely hampered by its shallow repetitive gameplay, and while the narrative has plenty of depth, the mind-numbing tasks in between story moments become tiresome quickly.

Alone With You provides an interesting ride for players, but doesn't manage to fulfill its potential. The romantic side of the game feels underdeveloped, and I ran into bugs often enough to hamper my enjoyment. That said, it has an interesting enough story that is worth checking out and its shortcomings can't undo a solid story that is told well.

Alone with You is a game in the same way that a statuette is a doorstop – it works and it's interesting to look at, but it would be better off doing something else. This title's compelling writing is let down by its monotonous gameplay, and I'm just not willing to endure one to enjoy the other.
