Demos of Never Alone Game to be Unveiled at Elders & Youth Showcase
Pre-launch celebration will offer interview opportunities with production team, stakeholders
As an exciting first-time opportunity, playable demos of the much-anticipated video game Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) are among highlights for attendees of the 2014 Elders and Youth Conference Arts & Opps Showcase, Oct. 20–21, at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage.
Members of the Upper One Games production team will be available to discuss the inclusive development process and what can be expected from the Nov. 18 release of this first-of-its kind game. Never Alone is an innovative, atmospheric puzzle-platform game inspired by traditional Iñupiat folklore, stories and characters as handed down over many generations through traditional storytelling.
Developed through a partnership between Cook Inlet Tribal Council (CITC), E-Line Media of New York and influential members of the Alaska Native community, Never Alone is the first title in a compelling new genre of video games dubbed “World Games.”
World Games bring traditional stories from indigenous cultures to global audiences in innovative ways through the immersive power of video games. Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) will be available for digital download for PlayStation4, Xbox One and personal computers (PC) on Nov. 18.
