Never Alone's first trailer explains the importance of passing along wisdom

The first trailer for Upper One Games' atmospheric puzzle platformer developed in partnership with Alaska natives, Never Alone, reflects on the importance of passing wisdom from one generation to the next.

Never Alone, also known as Kisima Inŋitchuŋa, examines the lore of the Iñupiat people. According to the game's description, it's set "in a place where survival shouldn't be possible." The game will explore what it means to be human, as well as the stories that have been handed down for generations.

"For thousands of years, we told stories from one generation to the next," the narrator says in the video above. "Our stories help us to understand how the world is ordered and our place within it. But what good are old stories if the wisdom they contain is not shared? That's why we're making this game ... We have so much to share and now we have a way to share it."

Never Alone is slated for launch this fall. For more on the Cook Inlet Tribal Council and Upper One Games, read our feature.
