'Never Alone' Game has Cultural Roots to Alaskan Indian Tribe
At the 2014 Casual Connect Game Conference, the Nerd Stalker gang caught up with Sean Vesce and Amy Fredeen of E-Line Media on their upcoming "World Game" release called Never Alone. Never Alone is a Atmospheric Puzzle Platformer game based on an Alaskan folklore from a tribe called the Inupiaq (ee-new-pee-ack). It is story of a young girl who travels with an Artic fox to find the source of the big blizzard affecting their land. Check out their interview to find out more about Never Alone and the cultural story behind the game.
