"I can’t think of many games that demonstrate interest in maintaining cultural storytelling. Yes, many games do tell stories, but they are not necessarily unique to one culture or tradition. Of games I’ve played, Okami and El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron come close to the attempt. But Never Alone, from Upper One Games and E-Line Media, is the video game equivalent of an oral tradition turned digital. Although the overall package is simple, its significance cannot be understated."
