Never Alone

A platformer with puzzle game features, developed by Upper One Game studio. The story of Never Alone is based on Inuit beliefs, with players taking control of a young girl from the Inupiaq tribe who sets on a dangerous journey with her white fox to save her people and stop the arrival of the eternal blizzard. During her adventure, she will meet many creatures from Inuit legends, such as Sky People, Rolling Heads or Blizzard Man. Never Alone presents its world from the side perspective, as we traverse vast levels, avoid traps, fight enemies and solve puzzles. The single player campaign lets us switch between the girl and the fox, both of which have unique abilities that are necessary to progress; however, control is split between two players in the cooperation mode. Never Alone features good-looking three-dimensional visuals accompanied by a soundtrack based on traditional Inuit music. Interestingly, the narrator speaks in Inuit language and the dialogue is translated into English through subtitles.

Never Alone is a platformer with puzzle game’s features for PlayStation 4. It is the work of Upper One Games studio.

Plot

The story of Never Alone is based on beliefs of Inuit’s. We play as a small girl from Inupiaq tribe, who travels through snow-covered lands in company of white fox. She must set on a dangerous journey to save her people and stop the arrival of the eternal blizzard. The story campaign is divided into eight chapters, during which we encounter many beings from Inuit’s myths, e.g. Sky People, Rolling Heads and Blizzard Man. To stay true to local traditions, Upper One Game’s team consulted members of tribal elderly, including descendants of Inuit, who specialized in telling such stories.

Game mechanics

Gameplay of Never Alone for PlayStation 4 doesn’t strands from platformers’ standards, testing both skill and wits of players. We avoid traps while traversing vast levels, fight enemies and solve clever puzzles. Switching between a girl and a fox plays a key role. Each of them has unique set of abilities required to finish most puzzles.

Game modes

Aside from single player campaign, Never Alone offers cooperative multiplayer, in which one player controls a girl, while the other plays as a fox. This mode offers slightly changed puzzles and challenges to ensure proper experience for both players.

Technical aspects

Never Alone’s visuals use full 3D, but its mechanics remain two-dimensional. The game is accompanied by soundtrack based on traditional music of Inuit. As for narration, all we hear is said in the language of those people, though everything is translated to English subtitles.
