Kona: Day One, A Really Intruiging Looking Exploration, Survival & Adventure Game

Posted by , | Views: 7,794
Kôna: Day One was sent to my inbox recently, and wow. As far as gameplay trailers go this has certainly captured my interest. It looks like a really good exploration, survival and adventure game.

It certainly looks like it has a good style going for it, but I need to see more gameplay to be completely sold on it.

It's confirmed for Linux on the official website pre-order page, and by my PR people.

About the game
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.

It's due in January, and I can't wait. Article taken from

Looks good, but "interactive tale", hmm…

Sounds like something in the lines of Vanishing of Ethan Carter (interactive tale).
Will see how it goes - a very possible buy for me as I'm always up for a good story.

That video left me more confused than anything else.

At least it's not another "horror" outfit.. I don't like those at all. I find this something to look forward to

A bit off topic, but one of the games from the humble bundle "Blackguards 2" downloaded for me in Linux, although it says failed to start game (invalid app config).

This looks interesting. A little like Cryostasis, which I consider a good thing.

It's not just us getting that error, the game doesn't work in Linux yet.

This game on the other hand looks pretty good, I'll be putting some cash aside for it.
