Kona VR Is Out Now

Kona for Virtual Reality has arrived, with support for Oculus, HTC Vive, and motion controls!

Here is the trailer:
https://youtu.be/HIpAa0fdwYo
And for this special occasion, we have prepared a FAQ just in case you’re wondering how it all works:

How Do I Get Access to the DLC?
Kona VR is available on our store pageas part of a bundle for new players and as DLC for owners of the base game.

So What’s Different on VR?
Well, not much really. It is Kona, but in virtual reality :) The only big change we’ve made is introducing a safe mode that is always on in VR, which removes combat against wolves. Encounters didn’t feel right in VR and caused motion sickness for many players.

What Happens to my Saved Game?
Nothing. You may continue your progress in VR, and swap back to non-VR anytime. Kona VR is just another way to immerse yourself in the Manastan region.

So What’s Next?
We have been hard at work pushing all versions of Kona in the last four years; PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, Xbox One, Android TV, Switch and now VR. During that time, many users encountered and reported issues with the game, which we are keeping in a nice todo list. So now that all the promised platforms are supported, we are going to (1) fix the issues and provide updates for the game, and (2) think about our next big thing :)

There are more news to come, but for the time being, we are going to support our recent launch and work on updates.

Stay tuned!

About This Game

Northern Canada, 1970. A strange blizzard ravages Atamipek Lake. Step into the shoes of a detective to explore the eerie village, investigate surreal events, and battle the elements to survive. Kona is a chilly, narrative-driven interactive tale you won't soon forget.

"Parabole has created a stunning game of duality, effortlessly blending survivalism with detective work and well-researched history with dying folklore."
- Stephen Turner, Destructoid

"It’s tremendous at creating its distinct atmosphere and then drawing you deeper in. It’s witty, spooky, and achieves an ideal sense of urgency. Weird, clamant and intriguing, this is well worth a look."
- John Walker, Rock, Paper, Shotgun

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.
