Alone With You: A Haunting and Hopeful Sci-Fi Adventure

Alone With You is a sci-fi adventure game that tells the story of the sole remaining member of a doomed terraforming colony. With less than a month before their planet crumbles and implodes, the player must use their remaining time to try to escape. The catch? There is only one escape pod left, and it isn’t functioning. Even worse, the only people who specialized in its systems are all dead from the colony’s mysterious failure.

But the colony’s AI is still with the player, and together they plan to get themselves off the planet—by recreating those key colony members and learning how to fix the ship, so they can both flee to safety.

Alone With You is a Sony PubFund game and is launching exclusively on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.


Alone With You is a first-person adventure game that emphasizes exploration and puzzle-solving. The player controls the protagonist, a female astronaut named Evelyn Reed, as she explores the abandoned colony and interacts with the AI, known as ALON.

The game’s puzzles are mostly environmental, and require the player to use their wits and the tools at their disposal to progress. For example, the player may need to find a way to open a locked door, or to repair a broken machine.

The player can also interact with ALON, who provides helpful information and assistance throughout the game. ALON can also be used to create new crew members, who can then be used to help the player solve puzzles and progress through the game.


Alone With You’s story is a haunting and hopeful tale of survival and redemption. Evelyn Reed is a complex and relatable character, and her journey is both heartbreaking and inspiring.

The game’s story is told through a series of flashbacks, as Evelyn explores the abandoned colony and pieces together the events that led to its downfall. The player learns about the colony’s ambitious goals, its tragic failures, and the sacrifices that were made by its members.


Alone With You explores a number of themes, including:

  • The power of hope: Even in the face of overwhelming odds, Evelyn never gives up hope of escaping the doomed planet. Her determination is a testament to the human spirit’s ability to overcome adversity.
  • The importance of community: Evelyn’s journey is made possible by the help of ALON and the other crew members she creates. The game shows that we are all stronger when we work together.
  • The fragility of life: The colony’s failure is a reminder that life is precious and can be taken away in an instant. The game encourages us to cherish the time we have and to make the most of our lives.

Critical Reception

Alone With You received positive reviews from critics, who praised its beautiful visuals, haunting atmosphere, and thought-provoking story. The game was nominated for several awards, including the BAFTA Games Award for Best Debut Game.


Alone With You is a must-play for fans of sci-fi adventure games. It is a beautiful, haunting, and hopeful game that will stay with you long after you finish playing it.
