It's nice but very short. There are not a lot of well drawn Gibson-ian adventures in the net. 

This game is so solid, logical and beautiful. Amazing atmosphere and cyberpunk feeling. Story is SUPER COOL, like reading good book or watching a movie! I feel like I'm in William Gibson's world. I love it in all possible ways. Wish you make it really really long game! WANT MORE!

I first played AMONG THORNS in early 2017, & remember it fondly to this date (1 year later).

The game's fascinating dystopian urbanscape is strongly reminiscent of Hong Kong's Kowloon Walled City (demolished in the early 1990s) & its scaled-down replica located inside Japan's Kawasaki Warehouse gaming arcade.

And like many others, I certainly wish the game were longer.

Excellent! I really hope Frith develops this into a full game. I'd be all over it. Reminds me so much of the killer Lucas Arts point-and-click adventures from the '90's that I grew up on.

Great concept, what game there is actually works very well, I love the cyberpunk setting. I'd absolutely help support this on Kickstarter or Steam Greenlight. Definitely a little game worth playing - and expanding!

Lovely art and a fascinating setting, but it feels like the demo for an unfinished game rather than a short standalone game with an open ending.

I play a lot of indie games and this one is a real standout! I felt totally immersed in the world right away which is rare. I love all the little details and the Bladerunner-esqe aesthetic. Would hands down buy a full version!

This is the shortest masterpiece I've played in a long, long time. I urge you to pick this back up and continue developing it. It could easily be as big as other indie releases, such as Stardew Valley or Undertale.

I very much enjoyed this and would like to see further development! I'd gladly purchace a full game.

Love the art style mate! :

This point and click is really nice ! x) The story is cool ! Thanks for this game!

Here is my gameplay:

pretty art, would like to see more. Shame that I don't have a Paypal account to offer support

Great little point-and-click adventure. The pixel art is simply gorgeous and I love the atmospheric synthwave soundtrack. Shame it was so short, would love to see a sequel or expansion. Anyway, donated $5. Keep up the good work!

Some of the most wonderful Pixel Art I've seen. Also, interesting world and Necronite concept. Would love to see a sequel.

This game looks awesome, but I'm already stuck on the first scene. some help, please?


Oooooh, thanks!

You are welcome :)
