Despite Never Alone’s failings, it’s an effective, important experiment in blending gaming and education for grown-ups and, as such, I find it hard to entirely dismiss. While I’m in no great rush to play it again, the appreciation I gleaned for a culture I knew practically nothing about is something I really cherish. If you can patiently plod your way through the game entwined with the story of the Iñupiat people, I suspect you’ll cherish them too.

The game may not be perfect but it represents a good step for educational games. The atmosphere is absolutely gorgeous and the way it represents the culture through the medium of the videogame is absolutely fascinating. If you are interested in learning about Iñupiat culture or seeing a good step in the direction of how to create an entertaining ‘educational game’ then give Never Alone a go. For the rest, its a middle of the road platformer with some nice scenery, a story of companionship and a few decent set pieces.

I began my time with Never Alone thinking that it could be the kind of game I would recommend even to people who rarely play games, something to hold up alongside the likes of Journey, inspiring me to say, "Look! Here is what games can do!" By the game's conclusion, the opposite was true; frequent and infrequent players alike should avoid it, for no amount of narrative sincerity makes up for this exercise in mechanical frustration.
