Never Alone tells the tales passed down among Alaska Native storytellers in a mystical, frostbitten, platforming world, and it's on its way to PS4, Xbox One and PC in the fall, priced at $15.
Never Alone puts players in the shoes of Nuna, a young Iñupiaq girl, and an adorable Arctic fox. Nuna and her fox friend work with the environment to traverse icy landscapes and outrun big beasties. The game has one- and two-player modes, both cooperative – in solo play, you can switch between Nuna and the fox. Never Alone comes from Upper One Games, an initiative of the Cook Inlet Tribal Council in Anchorage, Alaska, and publisher E-Line Media in New York.
"Featuring imagery and themes drawn directly from Iñupiat and other Alaska Native cultures, Never Alone features striking visuals, emphasizes the sensibilities and perspective of these indigenous Arctic people and requires players to work cooperatively to succeed in challenging and harsh environments," Upper One Games said in a press release.
