Dead Good is pleased to be handling the UK and European PR for Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna). This beautiful puzzle platform game is the debut title from Upper One Games, the first indigenous video game company in the US.
In Never Alone (also known as “Kisima Ingitchuna“ in Iñupiaq, a language of the Alaska Native people in the Arctic) players take on the roles of Nuna, a young Iñupiaq girl and an Arctic fox.
This atmospheric puzzle platformed for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC combines traditional folklore, stories, settings, and characters handed down over many generations by Alaska Native people whose roots and heritage date back millennia. Featuring imagery and themes drawn directly from Iñupiat and other Alaska Native cultures, Never Alone features striking visuals, emphasises the sensibilities and perspective of these indigenous Arctic people and requires players to work cooperatively to succeed in challenging and harsh environments.
