"Never Alone, or ‘Kisima Ingitchuna’ in its native Iñupiat, is a strange and interesting thing. Part folkloric platformer, part educational documentary, it’s a wonder the game ever got made at all. But there’s power in its timeless, mythic story, and heart and truth from the people whose culture it derives from. This is a small indie game made by industry veterans at Upper One Games in collaboration with a native Alaskan community, the aforementioned Iñupiat people. And although there are faults with the game itself, both in design and execution, I can’t help but be pleased at its existence and glad of my (somewhat frustrating) time spent playing it."
