"Watch any of the “Cultural Insights” documentary shorts in Never Alone, and the meaning of the game becomes clear. Out on ice that stretches white in every direction, the Iñupiat are anything but isolated. When they’re not with their community, they’re with the world around them, the sila.
Everything is connected. And in a very believable way, Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna)—the self-professed first Alaska Native game from Upper One Games—shows that. As a young girl who sets out to find the source of the terrible blizzard afflicting her village, the player moves from ice caps to caves, cliff tops to forest, with a narrative interplay as seamless as day turning to night."
