Never Alone (Kisima Ingitchuna) is a very important game on PlayStation 4. It is the first game developed in direct collaboration with the Iñupiat – an Alaska Native people. Their stories and tales were included in Never Alone, presented as the journey of a young Iñupiat girl and an arctic fox.
Gather close and I will tell you an unipkaaq, a story that has been passed to me from generations past. I learned this tale from Nasruk many years ago. He told me that that there is great wisdom in the listening for those who are willing to hear. Remember, when you are part of the Iñupiat people, you are never alone (Never Alone).
This is the story of Kunuuksaayuka. The story of an endless blizzard that threatens the survival of our people. A story of a dangerous and cold journey at the top of the world. A story of bravery and true friendship.
Come play my story. You are Girl and Fox, crossing dangerous lands, facing icy peril. Meet fantastic creatures and visit lost villages. Discover the mysteries and beauty of the helping spirits that are hidden in the world around us.
