VG24/7, a video game industry news site, reports that Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) will be the first title from Upper One Games, a studio formed last year by Indigenous developers. Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) is a hand-crafted video game for consoles and PC exploring the remarkable cultural heritage and mythology of the Iñupiat. Development of this adventure is made possible through a unique partnership between members of the Alaska Native community and acclaimed game developers. The puzzle-platform game shows a young girl exploring and surviving harsh snowy environments.
