Native Alaskan tribe's folklore-based adventure Never Alone gets a release date

New trailer shows off beautiful PS4, Xbox One and PC platformer.

Back in May I wrote about an intriguing folklore-based platforming adventure called Never Alone that's made by native Alaskan studio Upper One Games. Now that title has a release date of 4th November, when it will launch for PS4, Xbox One and PC for $14.99 (about £9).

Published by media company E-Line as part of its "World Games" initiative to produce video games based around various indigenous cultures' history, Never Alone (or Kisima Ingitchuna as it's known in its native Iñupiat), follows the story of a young Iñupiaq girl named Nuna and her fox companion.

The gameplay will be of the puzzle platformer variety, but Upper One seeks to imbue Never Alone with stories, settings, imagery and characters specific to Iñupiat and other Alaska Native cultures.

Never Alone can be played as a co-op game - where Nuna and the fox are each controlled by a different player - or in single-player where you switch off between characters.

It isn't being made by a bunch on newcomers either as Never Alone is headed by the creative director of Mechwarrior 2 and Interstate 76, along with team members who worked on the later Tomb Raider games at Crystal Dynamics and ex-id Software staff.

Check out some new gameplay footage of Never Alone in its Gamescom trailer below.
