Our videos of Kona

Our videos of Kona

These days, several games available in Early Access have drawn our attention since they focus their attention on exploration and adventure, adding a bit of survival mechanics to the mix to make it even more interesting. After The Solus Project which we strongly recommend, here comes Kona, a title which will take you in the middle of a snowstorm in an isolated village from Quebec. Hired by a rich industrialist whose property has been vandalized, Carl Faubert is about to find himself lost in what seems to be an abandoned place. All the inhabitants apparently vanished, including his client, and his job is now to understand what happened to all of them. We have prepared three gameplay videos but should be back with more as we are thinking of livestreaming the game later this week.
Note: We remind you that the build shown here is not final as the game is still in development.

Note 2 : If you are interested, it might be even more tempting to give it a try considering its current price. Quite the bargain on Steam.

Note 3: The game's price is even more interesting on GOG, so we're adding the link to the news article.

Western devs are great now, there's always nice music playing in the background in many of the new western games, unlike before only boring sound effects.

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (6 Hours ago)
