Puzzle Platformer Never Alone Features Adventure, Folklore, And An Indigenous Alaskan Heroine




I want to play this. I want to play this right now.

Never Alone is the upcoming inaugural title from Upper One Games, which describes itself as “the first indigenous-owned video game company in the U.S.” The game follows the adventures of a young Iñupiaq girl as she attempts to stop an endless blizzard. There’s a big focus on cultural authenticity here, with a foundation in stories that have been around for thousands of years, and narration read in the Iñupiaq language (English subtitles will be provided). As someone deeply interested in both folklore and games, I think it’s wonderful to see a very old storytelling tradition join hands with a new one. Never Alone will be released this fall for both PC and console.
