Never Alone – an atmospheric puzzle platformer for the cold months
Released on November 18th, Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) is the first game developed in collaboration with the Iñupiat, a native people from Alaska. Nearly 40 Alaska Native elders, storytellers and community members contributed to the development of the game. You play as a young Iñupiat girl, who is accompanied by an arctic fox. If playing co-op one is the girl and one is the fox. They set out to find the source of the eternal blizzard which threatens the survival of everything they have ever known.
The downloadable title costs around $15 and is available for PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4. I’m more than excited about this game. I absolutely love local co-op games. When you’re in a relationship and both love gaming and couching, it’s one of the best things to do as a couple. The sad thing is that there are so few games that support local co-op. A fact that irritates me greatly. Developers should know that it’s a common wish with gamers to be able to play locally with friends or your partner. It’s what I love about Halo. From the beginning you were able to play the campaign on split-screen. I played every Halo game like this with my boyfriend.
I’ll make a post about co-op games here someday. With a list of the best ones I played so far and hopefully I’ll get a few recommendations for new ones I haven’t discovered yet.
As far as this game is concerned, I have high expectations. The trailer is so beautiful and I think it’s the perfect co-op winter game.
