Our final game for this month is a particularly special one. Never Alone is a video-game created specifically as a cultural object, recording the mythology of the Iñupiat people. Also known as Kisima Ingitchuna and Kisima Innitchuna, the game tells the story of a young girl and her adventures with a fox spirit through the Alaskan Tundra. Players can enjoy the game-world alone or play with friends or family in the cooperative mode, and can learn about Iñupiat culture and language by watching educational videos and interviews with community elders. The game really pushes the boundaries of what games can do and be.
