NVIDIA Ansel Now Supported in Kona

Hey everyone!

NVIDIA GeForce drivers that were released today unlocked NVIDIA Ansel support for Kona, which means that you can now take even more awesome screenshots!

NVIDIA Ansel is a revolutionary technology that hands gamers the tools to capture unique, professional-grade 2D, 360° and Virtual Reality 360° screenshots on GeForce GTX graphics cards.



By pressing Alt-F2 in the game, you can capture personally-framed free-cam screenshots, adjust the field of view and rotation of the screen, add optional Instagram-style filters, and save to shareable file types with a single click. The game pauses during the process, so you don’t have to worry about freezing to death. Here are a few examples of filters you can apply on screenshots:






Hope you enjoy Ansel :)
Cheers!

Patch #1 and Soundtrack DLC

Hey everyone!

It’s been two weeks now since we have launched Kona on Steam. It looks like both the press and you guys are enjoying it! Since launch, more than 5,000 additional players bought Kona and joined us on Steam and 36,987 persons added the game to their wishlists! We’ve had some solid press coverage too:

While this is all good news, it’s certainly not going to stop us from improving the game!

FIXES AND IMPROVEMENTS

Here are the things we fixed in the latest patch...
  • We fixed the headlight bug and hid a second one, just in case
  • You can now keep all random pictures you take (new tab in the journal)
  • We fixed the disappearing Iron Box bug (it should reappear in your inventory)
  • We fixed “The Hunt” achievement (it will unlock when you reload a save in which you found all crossbow bolts)
  • We added a light to be able to see the map in the car at night
  • Radio interacting icon in the car is now hidden when holding the map
  • Various minor bug fixes and optimizations
UPCOMING CHANGES & KNOWN ISSUES

...and the things we expect to ship in the coming weeks:
  • We will add an option to delete pictures in the journal
  • We will add an option to disable quick loadings between areas
  • We will add Russian language for texts, interface and subtitles
  • NVIDIA will whitelist Kona in its driver to support Ansel and other NVIDIA features
  • We will fix the bug with the notification stuck on-screen
  • We will fix the bug of the night that never triggers
DLC SOUNDTRACK AVAILABLE NOW

Along with this update, we are proud to announce that the original soundtrack by CuréLabel will be available as a DLC on our store page soon!

MESSAGE TO KICKSTARTER BACKERS WHO PURCHASED THE DIGITAL SOUNDTRACK: you should receive your Steam key within an hour! If there is anything, contact us at support@parabole.ca.

COMMUNITY SCREENSHOTS + ANSEL

Not only do we love the screenshots you guys are sharing on Steam, but we’re now working with NVIDIA to bring the magic of Ansel to Kona. Ansel allows any player to freely move the camera around to take gorgeous HD screenshots, 360° panoramas and VR-compatible stereoscopic images of the game.

Ansel is already supported, but not yet whitelisted in the official drivers. You shouldn’t have to wait long for the update to arrive, but for those who are eager to try it out, you can simply open the command line, paste the following line (including quotes) and press enter:

"C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\Ansel\Tools\NvCameraEnable.exe" whitelisting-everything

When it’s done, pressing Alt-F2 anytime during gameplay (except during cutscenes) will open Ansel. Note that this requires a compatible graphics card (NVIDIA 600 series and up). We’re going to share more details about Ansel in another update.

EDIT: Driver update is now live on Geforce Experience and Kona is now whitelisted by default. You don't need to write this command anymore :)

That’s it for today’s update! Let’s finish this in beauty, here are three handpicked screenshots from the community:

About This Game

Articles

"Sometimes I try random Steam Early Access games on a whim. Often, it’s a very bad idea. Kona is a big exception to that rule."
-Kotaku

Setting

October 1970. W. Hamilton, a rich industrialist who owns a hunting manor in Northern Canada, reports several cases of vandalism perpetrated against his property. Unable to find out who dared to commit these acts, Hamilton calls Carl Faubert, a renowned private detective to handle the affair.

In Kona, Carl becomes trapped up in the deep north, engulfed in an unexpected snowstorm, and is unable to find his client —or any other living inhabitant for that matter. The player incarnated detective Faubert, who must shed light on the mysterious events befalling the area.

Key Features

  • Step into a surreal interactive tale of mystery and investigate the perplexing quietness in the entire town.
  • Explore a vast, frigid Northern environment and battle the elements to survive.
  • Enjoy the atmospheric soundtrack featuring music by Quebec folk band Curé Label.
  • Experience the tale through the omniscient, third-person storyteller.
  • Go back in time with a vintage look and feel reminiscent of 1970s rural communities.
