About

Never Alone is a 2D platformer about an Iñupiaq tribe. Iñupiaq are the indigenous people of Alaska. The game is based on their traditional tale called "Kunuuksaayuka". It is the only game in the series. The "Foxtales" DLC has been released a year later and added 3 new levels.
It is the highly story-driven game: a whole gameplay centers around an adventure of a girl and her fox. The player can control both characters, one at a time. Fox is primarily used for fast movement, while the girl can pick things up and throw bola — traditional Iñupiaq long-ranged weapon. The story tells itself in the form of an oral fiction: the voice behind the screen comments the player's action and responds to their achievements sometimes rewarding them with real-life Iñupiaq videos.
The plot centers around the blizzard — Iñupiaq tribe doesn't know its source and sends a girl Nuna to explore. Along the way, Nuna meets some traditional Iñupiaq goddesses: the blizzard God, Manslayer and the rolling heads.

Never Alone reviews and comments

The cultural insights are interesting and the Foxtales DLC was actually good (cute story with a genuinely scary antagonist) but wow the base game was genuinely frustrating and way too short. The movement is so slow and the controls are really clunky; having to constantly switch between characters (rather than be able to control them simultaneously) was annoying and bogs the gameplay down. It's less of a problem in the Foxtales DC, which is focused more on puzzles and is slower-paced, but in the main game, with so many enemies that you have to watch out for and platforms that will fall apart if you're not quick enough, it's a bit of an issue. 

If you want to support Indigenous creators go ahead and give it a try, but otherwise go play Raji: An Ancient Epic for an indie game about a lesser known pantheon, or Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons for a game that masterfully tells a story with gameplay that actually lets you control two characters at once. 
«Buggy as hell»
The game is often very cute, and can pluck the heart strings here and there, but the gameplay is nothing to write home about, and bugs make it a real challenge to play fluidly.
«Buggy as hell»
The gaming world needs more of these gems that take the gaming genre beyond its often misjudged limits.

Quality values on top of a fun local co-op mechanic.

More of these please.

The Game is already a whole While out, but I have only now managed to finish it. Shame on me, it's totally awesome. : 3 A great Story, not for a particularly long time, about a Girl and her Fox Friend who want to find the Origin of a very strong Snowstorm together. Between in there are a few Opponents to conquer, but no longer run like a bit and throw the Bola. The DLC also contains a small Story or adventure that is definitely worth it once you finish the Game. What I really liked about this Game, though, is the Cultural Views. One finds owls again and again in the Chapters, which then shines out small Short Stories about the Iñupiat in Alaska and their Traditions. Really very well done. Definitely recommended. : 3
Unusual setting and storytelling about people from Alaska, but as a game it is not so good: too primitive and poor controls
