Kona Is Now Officially Out!

https://youtu.be/iHdcOzC1UJc
Hey everyone!

After a year on Early Access, Kona is now officially out! We’d like to thank all our early supporter who gave us all the helpful feedback we needed to make Kona what it is today!

What’s new
If you played Kona on Early Access, you probably wonder what will change starting today. During early access, approximately 30% of the game content was available. Starting today, you can finally discover the rest!

You will also be able to find and drive a snowmobile and you can expect new encounters, among other things (we wouldn’t want to spoil the whole thing now, would we).

Original soundtrack DLC
Along with the official launch, the original soundtrack will be available soon as a DLC on our store page. We will publish another article when the time comes.

Kickstarter Shout Out
Our friends at Borealys Games, an indie studio from Montreal, just launched a Kickstarter campaign for their upcoming game Mages of Mystralia. We played it at PAX and it’s really awesome. Follow this link to learn more about this action-adventure game and help them out if you like it!

The Next Step
We expect our forums to be a lot more active, so it may take a little more time for us to answer everyone. Rest assured that we will read every post though!

With Kona out there, we’ll begin working on other projects. We are still in the brainstorming phase, but as soon as we can talk about it, we will!

Hope you enjoy the full version of Kona!
Cheers!

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.
