Snowy, Canada-based thriller Kona is releasing on March 17


Kona looks really intriguing. The new announcement trailer above makes it look kinda like Firewatch via The Long Dark, albeit with supernatural elements.

Trudging through the snowy Canadian wilderness, torch in hand, Kona tasks players with unravelling a mystery that begins with a routine job.

In it, you take on the role of a Korean war vet named Carl Faubert, who now works as a private investigator. He’s taken on a job to investigate a client’s hunting lodge that’s been vandalised.

“Northern Canada, 1970. A strange blizzard ravages Atamipek Lake,” says the official blurb. “Step into the shoes of private detective Carl Faubert to explore the eerie village, investigate surreal events, and battle the elements to survive.

“Kona is a game submerged in mystery and intrigue, one with a spine tingling narrative and unflinching drama that unfolds building the tension throughout.”

It looks like a walking sim at first glance, but the trailer shows that you’ll be doing some shooting, as well as shining a lantern at supernatural horrors.

It will have been in Early Access for a year by launch day, but the final game will offer four-to-eight hours of gameplay, according to a community manager on the announcement post.

Kona will release on Windows, Mac, and Linux on March 17, 2017.
