Chris and I saw this game at Pax East this year. It was truly a beautiful demo. The developers were really nice and let us get our hands on this and explore. The world is very large and the details are executed very well. This is one of those titles where if you had a VR headset you would think you’re actually there. The environment and weather are also very reactive and have a large sense of realism. If you love mystery exploratory games, you’ll want to check Kôna out.
Parabole has revealed a new trailer for Kôna’s first episode, called Kôna: Day One, due for launch in January 2016 on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
In Kôna: Day One, private detective Carl Faubert arrives in an eerie Northern Canadian town to investigate cases of vandalism reported by W. Hamilton, a rich industrialist known to have disagreements with the local Cree community. But an unexpected blizzard is ravaging the area, and Faubert’s client seems to have missed their rendezvous. Something is definitely off…
An interactive tale with a distinct 1970s aesthetic, Kôna invites players to explore frigid, all-too-quiet environments and attempt to reconstruct the strange events that befell the area, all while battling the elements to survive.
Where is Hamilton? What’s going on in this town that’s so terribly off-putting? Kôna is as close as you’re going to get to playing a spooky campfire story, and it’s one you won’t soon forget.
