Never Alone

released on Nov 18, 2014

Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) is an atmospheric puzzle platformer and the first game to be developed in collaboration with the Iñupiat, an Alaska Native people, drawn from a traditional story that has been shared across the generations. Nearly 40 Alaska Native elders, storytellers and community members contributed to the development of the game.

It features two characters, and it can be played in single-player mode or play cooperatively with a friend as you trek through frozen tundra, leap across treacherous ice floes, swim through underwater caverns and face enemies both strange and familiar.

You'll explore awe-inspiring environments, perform heroic deeds and meet legendary characters from Iñupiaq stories — all narrated by a master storyteller in the spoken Iñupiaq language.

Storia interessante, carino ma niente di che

Admirable for the way in which it portrays the folklore of its culture, but very underwhelming as a platforming experience.

Never Alone was at one point a free PS Plus game. It offers a relaxing atmospheric puzzle-solving experience that is on the easier side allowing the player to enjoy the game without worrying about any major challenges.
The level design, puzzles, and sceneries are for the for the most average/slightly good but nothing earth shattering.

This game was free in ps plus a long time ago, I got a few trophies then and slept on it until recently. This game is a great relaxing game, the only reason its rated so high is because i love the soundtrack.

O potencial dos games como ferramenta de preservação cultural é uma das suas maiores forças e PRECISA ser mais explorado. Nunca conheceria os Iñupiat e sua incrível cultura, que agora está eternizada num jogo infelizmente medíocre bugadasso sem muito a oferecer além da história.

A game I admire more than I like, but nonetheless is still a pretty cute experience. The representation wills this thing to life imo, it's fantastic and very in-depth whereas the gameplay feels a bit dated and one-note - though never bad, I don't think. I prefer the Foxtales DLC to the base game but both have a pretty neat spirit system that adds a little bit of ingenuity to a simple flash-game-esque final product. But all that being said I absolutely love the little fox and would defend him with my life.
