Kona Out Now on Steam Early Access | Watch a Chilly New Teaser (Video)
The power is cutting out. A thick layer of ice and snow covers Manastan. Packs of wolves hunt for creatures weakened by the cold. Only the bravest wander outside during the violent, unexpected blizzard―but these days, the small town feels even quieter than usual.
Kona is available now at 33% off on Steam Early Access! Set in the 1970s, this surreal interactive tale will have you explore, investigate, and occasionally fight the elements to uncover the strange events that befell the area.
A simple case of vandalism is what brought private detective Carl Faubert to Atamipek Lake in Manastan. Now, with only his trusty pickup truck and whatever resources he can find in the seemingly empty town, Carl begins an investigation that will have chills run down his spine. In the dangerous Canadian north, it’s up to him to see this case through.
Kona is out today on Steam Early Access and is also available on GOG as a game in development. It heads into full release later in 2016 across Windows, Mac, and Linux.
