Never Alone, the Arctic platformer that tells stories passed down by Alaska Natives, will launch digitally on November 4 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Developed by Upper One Games, the studio created by the Alaskan non-profit Cook Inlet Tribal Council, Never Alone will debut for $14.99. The developer also offered a new trailer that discusses the game's inspirations and flashes bits of its gameplay.
The game stars Nuna and her fox companion, who rely on one another to survive eight chapters that survey "treacherous ice floes, Arctic tundra, ice caves, boreal forests, cliff-built coastal villages" and more. Never Alone is inspired by Iñupiat folklore, including characters from stories handed down through generations of its people such as the Blizzard Man, Sky People and Manslayer. Players can switch between Nuna and the fox to traverse the side-scrolling landscape on their own or team up with a friend to overcome puzzles with each character's unique abilities.
