One game that may have slipped your radar is one that debuted in early 2017. The game in question is Parabole’s Kona, a narrative adventure. If you’re unfamiliar with the game, here’s a quick rundown. It takes place in 1970s Northern Canada in the Atamipek Lake area. The area has been affected by an unusual blizzard. You play a detective whose duty is to tour the community and uncover what happened while surviving the elements. As it is, we have a narrative thriller survival game. However, if you enjoy games like Firewatch or Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, this may be a game for you. The original trailer can be seen here. However, They recently announced a sequel after 6 years.
Kona 2 Brume will feel like at home for fans of the original game. According to the game’s main website, we are still in 1970 and in Northern Québec. A strange mist known as the Brume is affecting a mining community. The Brume has disconnected it from “its quiet reality” and damaged “nature’s balance.” However, no one knows where it is coming from. According to the game’s description:
Step back into the role of Detective Carl Faubert and dive deeper into the surreal mysteries of Kona.
Make your trek through the snowy landscapes of Northern Canada and discover that you are not entirely alone. Find other stranded people – both victims and survivors of a devastating avalanche – and uncover the hidden dark truth of the Brume.
