I'm a big fan of atmospheric games that immerse you in their gameplay and story - Machinarium, The Wolf Among Us, and Lifeline are some of my favorites on Android. After being available on Android TV for almost a year, Never Alone, from developer Upper Line Games (published by E-Line Media) is now available on Android phones and tablets, and it looks like it's going to hit it out of the park.
Never Alone is based on Native Alaskan culture and experiences, with the Cook Inlet Tribal Council, a non-profit organization that works with indigenous people, assisting with development on the game. Gameplay involves switching between Nuna, an Iñupiaq girl, and her Arctic fox companion to solve puzzles and advance through the story. The plot and narrative is based on Alaskan folklore, using Inuit mythological elements such as Ishigaq, Manslayer, Rolling Heads, and the Sky People.
As the game has been available on Android TV and the NVIDIA SHIELD since last June, plus most popular consoles and platforms for two years, some may already be familiar with it. The Android version is available for $4.99, the same as the Android TV version.
