Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Videos that tell true stories accompany sections in the game
At many points in the game a player will unlock videos that tell true stories that directly relate to what is happening in the game.
Pro Collaboration of veteran gaming devs an educational group and Alaskan natives
Never Alone is an actual collaboration work of top industry devs, an educational group and actual Alaskan natives. Ideally this is supposed to give the game a more genuine story and background while also staying educational and fun.
Pro Interactive folklore
Being that the game was helped developed by actual Alaskan natives, the folklore of the game holds a lot off weight that gets you right in the feels.
Con Transition from game to videos feels disjointed
It almost feels like the player is interrupted when a video unlocks and definitely feels disjointed to leave the gameplay to then watch another video.
Con Difficulty spikes 90 minutes in
The game spikes its difficulty at around the 90 minute mark, whether this is on purpose to stay true to life (in that some points in life are not fun and difficult to get through) or is just bad design is probably up to the player to decide.
