Never Alone Announced

Upper One Games announces Never Alone, the first game from "the first indigenous video game company in the U.S.," noting the title is "Kisima Ingitchuna" in Iņupiaq, a language of the Alaska Native people in the Arctic. This will put the player in the roles of young Iņupiaq girl and an Arctic fox, and the Never Alone website has a trailer for the game, which is expected for Windows, PS4, and Xbox One this fall. Here's more:

In Never Alone, players take on the roles of Nuna, a young Iņupiaq girl and an Arctic fox, in an atmospheric puzzle platformer that combines traditional folklore, stories, settings, and characters handed down over many generations by Alaska Native people whose roots and heritage date back millennia. Featuring imagery and themes drawn directly from Iņupiat 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 joined forces with E-Line Media, a leading publisher of games that engage and empower, to assemble a unique development team that partners Iņupiaq elders and storytellers with game industry veterans who have served in key roles on such popular titles as Interstate ’76, MechWarrior II, Tomb Raider: Underworld, Tomb Raider: Anniversary, Tomb Raider: Legend, the SOCOM series, Rage, Quake Live, and many more titles across console and PC.
