Alone With You
While searching and scanning for items remains tedious, the conversations with the holograms are the highlights
A cross between a visual novel and classic adventure game, Alone with You offers a strong and poignant narrative of love, tragedy, and relationships.
Alone With You's story can't erase its repetitive gameplay
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.
A very nice visual adventure with deep themes and an original approach to the dating sim genre.

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.
This short Canadian sci-fi interactive yarn is shades of an old Star Trek episode, but has a mind and message of its own
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.
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.
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.
