“Kona II: Brume is a frigid journey recreation with a ‘weird mist’”
Sequel introduced for a 2023 launch throughout PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Change
Kona developer Parabole and writer Ravenscourt are again for one more chilly, unusual, survival-tinged thriller. The pair introduced Kona II: Brume for PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Change in 2023. It’s only a quick teaser trailer right now, however extra particulars aren’t far off — the sequel shall be playable at gamescom in August on the Indie Sales space Area.
Visible-heavy trailer, proper? You’ll play a detective, Carl Faubert, and sure, there’s a canine sled. You’ll additionally journey by boat in quest of clues — and survivors — in a distant mining village tormented by an unnatural mist. Parabole goes for the “omniscient narrator” angle once more.
In response to Parabole co-founder Alexandre Fiset, “Kona II‘s mysteries revolve across the Brume, a weird, mind-bending mist engulfing the fictive area of Manastan, in Northern Québec, Canada. The sport begins the place its predecessor left off, in October of the yr 1970, however explores new grounds, and a storyline that lives by itself.”
Extra to the purpose, “Kona II: Brume is fastidiously made to please followers of Kona in addition to newcomers.” Count on to tangle with blizzards, bears, and “troubling nightmares.”
Kona is part of PS Plus Further, for those who’re curious
The timing of this sequel is attention-grabbing to me. The unique recreation is a number of years previous, and I by no means bought round to checking it out — till final week. Humorous how that works.
I downloaded a bunch of “positive, why not?” video games within the PlayStation Plus Further catalog, and Kona was one in all them. That mentioned, I solely made it about 20 minutes earlier than I made the decision that whereas I need to play extra, I’ll have to settle in to get probably the most out of this expertise. I simply wasn’t in the best headspace. Realizing Kona II is on the best way, I’ll should circle again.
Otherworldly mist is an intriguing angle, and that’s the form of hook I have to get wrapped up on this form of lonely, mystery-cracking journey recreation. From what I’ve heard, Kona‘s ending left lots to be desired; an all-around improved sequel might simply resonate higher.
Kona II: Brume is aiming for a 2023 launch on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Sequence X/S, and Nintendo Change. The group is “wanting ahead to revealing extra subsequent month.”
