2014 has been one of the best years ever for indie development, with 2D side-scrollers being a clear favourite with developers when it comes to genre. While there have been some real gems released this year such as Shovel Knight, Rogue Legacy and Valiant Hearts: The Great War, it could be argued that the genre is becoming a little stale within the indie scene. Now to round off the year is Never Alone, a 2D platformer that was developed in collaboration with native Alaskan people, known as Iñupiats. An interesting partnership you might think, but does this translate into a quality game? In the case of Never Alone, unfortunately not.
