Das Spiel ist echt eine Erfahrung, welche ich nicht mehr missen möchte. Das Setting eines kleinen Dorfes in den Wäldern Nordkanadas ist genial. Überall gibt es etwas zu entdecken auf der großen Karte, welche der Spieler frei erkunden kann. Die Atmosphäre ist super umgesetzt, man fühlt sich fast ständig beobachtet, obwohl das Dorf verlassen ist, oder etwa doch nicht? Findet es selbst heraus.
Der Fall, welchen wir als Privatdetektiv lösen sollen ist zwar ziemlich verworren, aber alles in allem plausibel und durchweg spannend.
Selten ein Spiel gehabt, welches mich doch so in den Bann gezogen hat.

[h2]Mysterium in Eis und Schnee[/h2]
Kona möchte eine Detektiv-Geschichte mit der Erkundung einer kleinen Open World und Survivalelementen verbinden. Wir spielen dabei als Privatermittler Carl Faubert, der vom reichen Großgrundbesitzer William Hamilton in den hohen Norden Kanadas gerufen wird, um Fälle von Vandalismus aufzuklären. In unserer bisherigen Detektiv-Karriere haben wir uns eher mit untreuen Ehegatten beschäftigt, aber schnell wird klar, dass dieser Fall eine größere Nummer wird.
In den etwa acht Stunden Spielzeit wird die Geschichte teils durch visuell recht simple Rückblenden, einen stimmig synchronisierten Erzähler sowie eine Menge Textdokumente wie etwa Tagebucheinträge oder Krankenakten vorangetrieben. Die Notizen sind wirklich gut geschrieben und auch gelungen ins Deutsche lokalisiert. In ihnen werden ein ganzer Haufen verschiedener Themen behandelt und Beziehungen zwischen den Bewohnern des Dorfes in der Provinz Québec Stück für Stück deutlich, wenn wir uns Namen merken und im Zweifel auch nochmal im Journal nachschlagen.
Dieser Part fühlt sich durchaus nach richtiger Detektivarbeit an und da Kona uns keine simple Anzeige mit dem nächsten Ziel anbietet, sind wir auch wirklich gut damit beraten, uns fleißig in das sich so immer weiter aufbauende Mysterium einzulesen. Das Ende lässt dann aber einiges offen und fühlt sich viel eher wie der Schluss einer Serienepisode an. Kona soll auch tatsächlich nur der erste Eintrag in einer vierteiligen Reihe sein.

Eine Open World mit Tücken
Recht viel Zeit verbringen wir im Spiel damit, vom einem Ort zum anderen zu laufen oder zu fahren. Im Auto dürfen wir aber nur den vorgegebenen Strecken folgen. Die motorisierte Fortbewegung ist generell eher Mittel zum Zweck und steuert sich etwas lahm. Stil hat es trotzdem und dazu läuft eine kleine Auswahl an traditioneller Musik der Québécois im Radio. Überhaupt finden wir in der Spielwelt einige interessante Informationen zu französischen Kanadiern und ihrem Verhältnis zu den englischen Kanadiern sowie der indigenen Bevölkerung.
Weniger Stil haben die regelmäßigen Ladeunterbrechungen bei der Reise durch die eisige Wildnis. Auch Carls Ausdauersystem ist für den Spieler schwierig zu durchschauen. Um Essen und Trinken müssen wir uns nicht kümmern, dafür setzt uns die Kälte mit der Zeit zu und wir verlieren geistige Gesundheit. Deshalb müssen wir immer wieder an festen Punkten Lagerfeuer anzünden und dafür bestenfalls auch Holzscheite, Streichhölzer und Anzünder im Gepäck haben. Insgesamt sind Inventarsystem und Items aber eher Beiwerk und zählen für mich nicht zu den echten Stärken von Kona. Auch auf gelegentliche Kämpfe können wir uns einlassen. Letztlich gilt für die aber ebenfalls das gerade getroffene Zwischenfazit, auch wenn sie hin und wieder schon mal kurz den Adrenalinspiegel erhöhen können.
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2609016024
Dichter Schnee, dichte Atmosphäre?
Eine größere Stärke waren da schon die Rätsel-Elemente. Es gibt klassische, teils optionale Knobeleien wie die Suche nach dem richtigen Schlosscode oder ein Hebelrätsel. Und außerdem hat sich wie erwähnt auch die Suche nach dem nächsten Hauptziel aus Ermangelung eines Questmarkers oft angenehm rätselmäßig angefühlt, da wir entsprechend selbst denken müssen.
Optisch fährt Kona eine stimmige Schneelandschaft auf, die wirklich sehr weiß ist und nicht allzu viele Details oder markante Punkte bietet. Einige Lichteffekte wie die Scheinwerfer unseres Autos kommen gerade in der Nacht sehr gut zur Geltung, generell hätten Beleuchtung und Details wie der liegende Schnee selbst aber noch etwas effektvoller und raffinierter ausfallen können. Dafür ist das abwechslungsreiche Interieur der Häuser mit vielen einzigartigen und durchdacht gestalteten Details ausstaffiert.
Zusammen mit der bereits erwähnten, gelungenen Erzähler-Synchronisation aus der dritten Perspektive und dem recht schmalen aber originellen Soundtrack ist Kona ein weitgehend immersives und atmosphärisch dichtes Erkundungs-Adventure. Daran können auch Patzer wie die Ladepausen oder gelegentlich etwas gezwungen wirkender Humor bei der Untersuchung von Gegenständen wenig ändern.

Persönliches Rating: 73/100

Fazit
[h3]Toll geschriebene Indizien erwecken den Detektiv-Spürsinn und erschaffen ein spannendes Mysterium in einem ungewöhnlichen, gut umgesetzten Setting. Das (vorläufige) Ende und teils etwas halbgare Gameplay-Mechaniken können das vorgegebene Niveau aber nicht ganz halten.[/h3]

I rather enjoyed my time with Kona. It's got a great sense of place, and exploring the little world was quite charming and the right kind of creepy.

I will say that I wish it ended differently. I realize in retrospect the story it wanted to tell, and didn't realize going in. It's very much a supernatural story, and although I didn't mind the supernatural elements, the whole murder mystery thing ends up taking a backseat at the end and it tries to pull off some stuff that I don't think the developers had the time or resources to do justice. It just comes off a little silly, when the exploring and the environment and the mechanics up to that point were really very solid.

Despite the underwhelming final act, I think it's worth playing. There's plenty of richly detailed world to explore for a relatively small game. Just brace yourself for a bumpy ending.

So what is Kona? It's a very climatic and interesting detective game and I would really like to tell you more about its many pros. Unfortunately I'can't. Due to a design oversight when you explore the in game map in a particular way the endless night which I'm being told is for the climatic ending triggers very early. Doing all the detective work in the dark is supremely annoying and made me quit the game. That combined with constantly fighting with unnecesrly small inventory space made me feel punished for exploring every corner of the game. This is a great shame because except for those two things this game could have been excelent.

It's atmospheric and all that, but very slow and dull. I couldn't finish it and ended up giving up. I like how you have the option to solve things for yourself but it just seems like the developers gave no solid direction in the game. Way too open-ended and little hand-holding for my liking.

Kona is a type of game that's relatively new to me. Usually I'm used to gunning down dozens or hundreds of enemies in a matter of minutes this is a game where I doubt I've shot more than 20 times. To be completely honest many people may find this game boring so it's not for everyone. I however found it strangely relaxing instead. To be fair however my one criticism is that Kona gives you very little direction so if you don't want to have to go back and forth through the map you might end up using a walk-through. And in my attempt to spare you from that I'll tell you to explore EVERY SINGLE HOUSE AND ANYTHING THAT LOOKS LIKE A LOCATION. Trust me if you don't you may not finish the game

Overrall I'd recommend this game if you get it on sale. The story line feels pretty short and if you are playing just to compete the game then you can get done fairly easily. I would recommend going into this game blind as well and not looking at many if any at all because that will extend play time and make figuring out the game more enjoyable. If you can get invested in a game's lore, then this game has a lot to offer, but if you are more interested in finding a cool survival game, this game is pretty easy as compared to other survival games. The one thing that is heavily appealing about this game are its aesthetics as the yellow impact font and the 1950s style lend well to each other. I think the game is good but I found it hard to stay involved with the lore of the village when you only get to talk to one villager. That being said it is enjoyable, just maybe wait to pick this game up until it goes on sale.

The game had great potential, I loved the sense of mystery and the storytelling, but I couldn't last much longer on this game and I really was wishing to have the patience to finish it because the story is interesting, but I needed to quit halfway through because I spent too much time in this game on things that could have been designed much better.

I couldn't stand the user interface, navigating the paper map and other UI elements during the game is a slow fatiguing process and kills the excitement, Audio-wise the Voiceover levels are not EQ'ed and mixed properly with Music and SFX, and I needed to lower SFX way down just to hear what the narrator is saying.
The atmospheric music is nice the first time you hear it, but shortly you realize they are made of repetitive short loops and this is irritating, they definitely should have invested more in music.
as for the in-game user experience, I didn't feel the given amount of Stamina is sufficient for the size of the maps, too much time was wasted walking through large locations,
I didn't feel the hints were sufficient especially in the beginning, this is the kind of game that if you get stuck somewhere, you don't know whether it's a glitch you're just missing something.
collectibles, levers, crucial objects, and interactive props are not easily spotted and are easy to miss in such a large open world, couldn't they just make them a bit more shiny or something? you will need to keep checking Youtube walkthroughs to know that you are still on track.

my review is not an attack, but rather pointing out things that are crucial to be solved before any great product is released. and unfortunately, the game was not ready, they did need a bit more time with polishments, more time could have turned this game into a masterpiece.

This is an incredible story game. It tells the story by allowing you to go where you want, and you wont be guided by arrows and invisible walls forcing you to go where you need. You need to discover how to do things and where to go by yourself. The ending was a bit boring, however the gameplay before that 100% made up for it. So it's not for everyone, but I'd recommend giving it a try, especially if it's on sale.

I don't usually like to leave negative reviews unless the game is really deserving of it. I bought this game years ago and just got around to playing it while cleaning out my backlog. I beat it in one sitting in about 5 hours. The setting is interesting and if you like mystery type games this game is just ok. I feel like the whole journal and actual Private Eye part of this game is kind of wasted. The ending is ultimately what absolutely killed this game for me. I honestly don't feel like I should of even put time into this game as the ending just seems so lackluster. Buy it on sale if you need something to occupy an afternoon.

Kona is a fantastic detective/puzzle/exploration game. The game does atmosphere very well: you are left to explore a vast little town in Northern Canada during the harsh season of winter. The character gets cold, stressed, all which must be mediated with input from the player. The sound effects are done well. I also enjoy the narration every time the player finds an important document/reaches a new destination - it assists with story progression in an easy, straightforward way. There is a lot of exploration as the world feels quite vast, even though it's not such a huge map. You can travel by snowmobile, car, or foot. Graphics are also beautiful.

Overall, an interesting detective/exploration game that lets you piece the puzzle together without holding your hand, but merely hinting.

It's a nice, short game (7 hours for me.)

PLAYING TIPS (Very minor spoilers): I took the advice from others and played it in the daylight. Much more enjoyable if you avoid the caves until you have explored everything else and have seen the other three frozen peeps. Make the ice cave the very last area to visit before unlocking the ice wall or else you'll spend the rest of the game plating in the dark with wolves out to eat you at all times. Make sure to have the snowmobile fixed as well, it also was a source of comfort knowing the wolves were scared away by it during the day and it was easier getting around town than the truck. The axe is also your friend and security blanket from the wolves. Freakin' always carry fire starter fluid and save at least three bottles before unlocking the ice wall.

Cool hack and final tips: After the ice wall falls, when you get to the point where your snowmobile won't cross the creek by the burned out forest fire cabin, simply cross over by foot, start a fire in the cabin, save the game, then reload. Your snowmobile will magically be waiting outside the cabin with all your supplies. You can continue to use it until after the next cabin. At this point a huge tip is to unload almost everything except for all the beer, med kits, medicine, and cigarettes you can carry. You need all the boost you can get when running from the final boss. Also keep the axe and flashlight. If you are good with the gun keep it for the ice wolves but I found the axe to be effective and quick. Don't bother shooting up the final boss, he can't be killed, just run like heck!

The game is short and enjoyable as a fun a exploration and atmospheric experience. The story is a Show not a Tell type, with a good narrator. Advice: Avoid the Ice Cave until you did everything else and don't drop the crowbar or any other tool... Store them in the car or something, just don't drop them, they vanish on reload.

For $15 this is a pretty good game, love the narrator, and like other reviewers have said, it feels like playing through a good mystery novel. Though it may connect with you more if you're Canadian, as a Floridian I didn't have much in the environment to relate with. I think overall the pacing was good, but when it becomes night and you near the end of the game it felt like the pacing had changed somewhat. Not necessarily bad, but just different. I'd give it a 7/10 and recommend it for anybody who likes the genre of mystery games that don't require too much experience with pc games.

Walking simulator of the boring variety. Prepare to spend hours with little to no stimulation.

Why I like it: The whole detective thing seemed interesting, and I liked solving puzzles like getting the crowbar which is stuck beneath a truck. But to move the truck you must turn on the generator. But to turn on the generator you have to repair the wire.

Why I don’t like it: It’s unbearably boring. Navigating inventory is excessively difficult. Doors and drawers get stuck on your constantly. It’s hard to always see into them.

I appreciate what the game was trying to be, environment detective mystery game or whatever but it just didn't hit the right notes for me. I just can't recommend it. Game felt clunky and these different mechanics and genres didn't meld right like I assume devs wanted. UI was bad, real pain to use physical map while exploring as it will stop your character and u cant even use it in the snowmobile but can while driving a car. For some reason there is guns and combat as well as detective work, fighting the elements, inventory management and crafting and navigation all at a brisk snail pace. For the amount of stuff the game wants you to do on the map feels like its forcefully bogging you down. Especially the exploration with you having to retreat due to dying to the cold and needing to find fire. I didn't explore the whole map and accidently triggered end of the game cos I kept dying to cold while trying to explore the northern part of the map and was against the clock to find a safe haven. The narrating guy also sounds retarded with a cock stuck in his throat or something.

TLDR: game wasn't fun and the meshing of too many genres was bad for this game. Don't recommend.

Intriguing story + exploring the map, finding hidden places and rounding up clues, sparks curiosity and induces that great feeling of accomplishment!
It's a good one.

A piece of advice: Try not to look at the achievements before playing the game. They are full of spoilers and ruin the different surprises this game has to offer. I did a mistake by looking at them and lost some precious, unpredictable moments in Kona.

Here is my overview of the game:

PROS:
+ Immersive environment - you can actually feel like you are in Quebec, language, items in environment everything falls-in nicely
+ Interesting story line - you are a detective sent into a small Quebec village and have to untangle a mystery and as you progress you discover more and more of the story of the villagers
+ Tackling challenges is straightforward - no crazy or broken puzzles, figuring out what to do is relatively straightforward, just explore the map and the high-lights of the map, journal is updated frequently and can help you recall past events

CONS
- Keybindings - needs improvement, introduction is not sufficient, couldn't figure out my way around binding items to keys
- Annoying loading - traveling between zones triggered annoying freeze and loading of next area
- Story could've been bigger - won't spoil you with story elements

Overall, it's a nice immersive detective game unfolding a mystery in the northern Quebec. If you expect high-paced shooting FPS, it's not that kind of a game.

Kona is not a perfect game, but it is still very enjoyable. The survival mechanics are challenging enough to keep you engaged and the build up in the story is decent. I would not buy the game for full price though. It is not long enough to justify it in my opinion. The ending felt a bit off, but I've noticed a trend in these types of games to take a turn similar to this ending. I didn't mind it regardless.

Kona is a fairly novel story-telling game; it tells an interesting story regardless of how or when you discovered the pieces of that story. As a player, you have to a little bit of mental work, shuffling the events for the narrative to make sense. But Kona supports you with its ingenious devices so as to make it coherent and compelling.

I played it through three times. The first playthrough of any game is always achievement ignorant, as in I play it traditionally, without regard for collecting little nerd-scout badges. Kona took 10 hours the first time. The second (12 hours) and third (three hours) playthroughs were achievement focused. At first, I thought it would be a chore schlepping around the winterscape a second and third time, scrounging collectables . But on those repeated playthroughs, I gained a lot more insight and developed a greater perspective on the story as a whole: It is tale that is enriched with retelling.

My only complaint would be that it is too short.
[spoiler] The victims were dead by the time you arrive in town. I would have liked the suspense to build with them disappearing one by one at the beginning and the middle of the story. This would allow for greater description of the murdered characters and allow for greater speculation and guessing by the player [/spoiler] But the main issue is I wanted to hang out with Carl Faubert a little longer. He was a great character. I hope we get to see him again.

A good concept, but very poorly executed.

The investigation is really good up until the final Ice Wall part, where it then just.. seems out of place. The people stuck in ice, i thought, would be the weirdest thing about this game, but boy was a I wrong. It really felt like it was hinting towards a bigger picture, and when they revealed what it was, I was, well.. disappointed. Just didn't seem right.

The gameplay is nice and works fairly well, but there are a couple things I'd like to point out:
- The inventory system.
This game has 3 main storage systems, when it genuinely does not need it. One collective storage system would've been perfectly fine, and 3 makes it a bit too much. This is a decently small game, and it has an insane amount of items and collectibles, most of which barely serve any real purpose. It just feels like a bit too much.
- The loading screens. (we all saw this one coming..)
As you'll see on most reviews to this game, the loading screens are extremely out of place, and because of that, make them annoying. They really disrupt the flow of the gameplay, as it completely freezes you in place with a small loading symbol in the center of the screen. Any sounds that were playing right up until you get to the loading screen continue to play, even though the game is stopped. Why this game isn't completely open world, I couldn't tell you. This is definitely one of the major flaws of this game.
- Direction.
This game has very poor direction, and you're often left walking around aimlessly, waiting for some dialogue to put you back on track. My first play-through of this game, I missed 2 of the ice visions because I had no idea where I was going. 30 minutes in, I had to look up a play-through on YouTube to find out where to go and what I was doing wrong. This ended up happening about 3 times as I was playing, and it seriously frustrated me.

Overall it's a decent game with great graphics, alright gameplay, a very odd story, and a lot of walking.
Try it out if you'd like, and get out a YouTube video of it open, because you'll need it.

The bad really, really outweighs the good.

I have finished this game quite a while ago, but still sometimes think of it. I loved it.
Gameplay is nice, story is interesting and engaging. The ending unfortunately is disappointing (imho).
Overall I definitely recommend it. Especially if it is on sale.

Kona is a solid walking simulator with an interesting and intriguing and surrealistic story.

Visually it is quite good, helping to create an appropriate atmosphere for the narrative. Although the story is intriguing and gripping, the gameplay is a bit slow (and the puzzles could be better).

Nevertheless, if you like walking simulators, Kona is an interesting option.

Recommended with discounted price (lasts about 5-6 hours).

This is an underestimated game, the first person shooting game, this game creative quite good, good plot, excellent workmanship, is an independent game is worth playing works. The completion of branch tasks requires some patience and consideration. After the completion, there will be a sense of fullness. The plot is very attractive. I hope more people will experience this game. It's really great. No less than the long dark。

Nice mystery solving game / puzzles / walking simulator. It is somewhere between Vanishing of Ethan Carter and Firewatch in themes.

It is a bit shorter than I liked, but I did enjoy it.

The atmosphere is crafted nicely, with feeling of desolation and lonliness, and tragedy. Voice acting and sprinkled bits of history and Canada's details is superb. Slow pace might not be for everybody tho.


It is not perfect tho. Loading pauses between sections of the map are annoying. Some items to complete the important milestones are not super easy to find, making you circle around, visit same and same place over and over again, which is monotonous. Music (especially from various radio found in the game) could be varied a bit more. Visually game is good, but not perfect. I.e. in second part of the game (which is very short btw), at night, trees don't cast shadows from your snowmobile or flashlight, but everything else does cast the shadows, which is weird. The inventory is a bit of a mess, with a lot of items, serving essentially no useful purpose, but you keep hoarding it, thinking they will be needed. Sure, some are needed, but some others, are not. At least you have extra storage in the car or snowmobile. Some achivements are hard to get, i.e. hidden tallismans, or the tresure hount (maps only show once, and they are not stored in your inventory, which must be a bug). Story could be more complex.

Other than that, I think it is worth playing over day or two, and the story and mystery did keep me playing, which not many other games could do. Worth the money.

Also, works really well under Linux, no issues. 64-bit, OpenGL, based on Unity. The only minor issue would be that on 4:3 and 1:1 aspect ratios, some menus and the journal might not display properly, which is sad. Also, there is a bug, that the game is showing nothing / blackscreen on start. The trick is to start in non-fullscreen mode, then switch to fullscreen. This is bug known to developers, but still not fixed. :(

An aimless game that attempted to deliver an intriguing experience but trips on its tail and comes off shallow and superficial.
Kona starts with a lot of potential but slowly nose dives as the open world is stuffed into a linear investigation that throws out show don't tell and outright gives you the solution to the mysteries only to accumulate in the writers wiggling their fingers and shouting boo to avoid creating a conclusive ending.
The gameplay is completely arbitrary in quality. Maintaining your heat stress and health becomes a lot less scary when you realize the abundant inventory space allows you to carry most of the items needed for survival through out the game, making lowered conditions more of an inventory check than an actual challenge.

TL:DR promising game with terrible execution.

The first time I played this game, it was on xbox and it kinda ran like shit on the absolutely terrible AMD jaguar processor. Finally got back into PC gaming, played this game, and it's awesome. It has a great story behind it, the map is awesome, and it has no lack of features. As someone who really likes games with storys, I would highly recommend this game.

Good game. I found it daunting at first like any new game.
But I can tell you it will keep you wondering. Keep exploring finding buildings and grab wood to make a fire saves game at fire and keeps you warm and smart lol.
Char doesnt need to eat or sleep. Likes beer though lol.
The graphics are really nice.
Some parts are just downright scarry.
I love who dunnit games.
My only con is the access to our inventory and the torch. Could do with a reworking for simpler method to access everything.
Its a very enjoyable and stressfull at the same time game and I can reccomend .

I feel that the game's storyline is a good example of what revenge can do to people, turn them into monsters(literally with the wendigo). But for me the best part of this game was the exploration as driving around to places on the map was enjoyable for me. The best section of the game in my opinion was finding all 4 visions of the wendigo's victims. I finished the game in less then 7 hours. Not long but not too short. I might play this again but even if not id say the experience i had in less then 7 hours was worth the 15 dollars.

I was excited to play a narrative based game that is set in my own country as you don't get many that take place in Canada. The game starts off strong with a great setting and atmosphere but unfortunately for me, it was bogged down by tedious management and what seems to be an unfocused vision.

The biggest damper on my experience was the janky controls and interruptions...such as a sprint button that seemed to work at random. I tried to use both a gamepad and keyboard but the game seemed to decide at random when I was allowed to sprint and when I was not. There also seemed to be loading screens randomly thrown about the open world you explore. Running around in the wilderness and getting a youtube style loading icon pop up and stop you in your tracks really took the immersion out of it.

Going past the technical side of things, the gameplay seemed to struggle with what it wanted to be. It was a little bit survival, a little bit walking simulator, and a little bit shooter. I would've very much rather had a focused vision on one aspect than all these things thrown in. The amount of supplies you find defeats the purpose of the survival elements, and turns it into a tedious task of watching the meters go down. There was never any feeling of trying to survive. The shooting part was no better. I would've much preferred a straight forward walking simulator than trying to get a melting pot of ideas in one game.

The story was a let down as well. There seemed to be a build up of mystery and then suddenly its all explained in 1 minute and the game ends abruptly after that. I was hoping to get to unravel the mystery in a slower manner.

I did enjoy some of my time learning about the residents of the town and exploring the environments but in the end was let down. I think a little bit more focus and more thought out mechanics would go a long way. I'll be watching this developer for their next game to see what they've learned from making KONA.

After the first half hour, it just felt like wandering around aimlessly both from a mechanical and narrative perspective. The atmosphere didn't immerse me either sadly. Only reason I bothered to finish was because I read that the ending was surprising but even that didn't really land for me. Everything about Kona sounds like something I would like, but I didn't really enjoy it.

Nice atmosphere and a good story.
The games uses a completely open world to explore with your vehicle. That has some pro's and cons.
+ Lot's of exploration to be done that will be rewarded
+ The story doesn't have to be linear. You can choose yourself in which order you visit places.
- Invisible walls
- Locations that look like repeating themselves with the same graphical objects/assets
- It's an adventure game, so you have to look for clues and solve riddles. In case you missed out something at an earlier location it means having loads of driving around the map to do. That problem would be less grave in a linear point'n'click.

This is a bit older style game, but for an indie its not bad. The atmosphere of northern
Canada in 1970 is pretty good. The voice overs are vintage CBC. Best part is the story.
A bit fetch quest grindy but not annoying enough to pass up. Think The Long Dark with
a mystery. Worth the money? I thought so.

Interesting concept but poorly executed. Kona attempts to merge many genre characteristics and fails in each of them.

There's 'survival' element that's mostly scripted, heat gauge acts as a timer, the other two gauges are most of the time irrevelant. 90% of items that you collect and are not story related are useless and there's no point of using them/can't use them.
Game looks like it's open world and linear at the same time. There are invisible walls EVERYWHERE (even in a chase sequence), you can walk where you want along the paths but the game does not tell you where you should go despite it being entirely linear. Missed one thing? No problem, just check every location because game does not give a hint or marks places you've been. Also there are loads of loading screens when driving around that resemble half-life loading screens (in 2016? Really?)

Story ends abruptly and ending makes no sense. Either they ran out of time/budget or they need to hire a new writer.

The graphics are good, and the game has a certain vibe to it and I like it, but that's it.

The start of the game is great, when you get the first touch of the mystery. During that time you learn how to use the basic mechanics etc. Middle game is good as well, but you know, it keeps you thinking so many thinks that might happen and I got chills there and there because of the atmosphere of the game. BUT the ending. When you were all in, it just ended. The ending was a disappointment for me. But still pretty good first person mystery atmosphere journey.

Kona is like if the HER Interactive Nancy Drew games let themselves embrace the supernatural elements they constantly allude to. Oh, and let there be guns and dead people. I, like others, got this game in the Ukraine Humble Bundle and was pleasantly surprised to find it put me and my sister right back in the zone of sitting around the family computer as Nancy Drew or Sherlock Holmes, solving a mystery.

Carl, despite being a silent protagonist, is strangely endearing. And we learn a lot about his character by the way he looks at things. The world is incredibly high detailed and you can easily lose track of time following wolf prints or snapping polaroids of clues. It’s also clearly well researched- this is a totally believable northern Quebec town. The doors open inward people!!

As an anthropologist I immediately knew what a Claude-Levi Strauss book meant and how odd that was. I will say I expected more of the Cree culture to play an overarching role as a result of that clue into anthropology. But the 70’s mysticism vibe was cool.

Based on a few other reviews I’ll address a few things:

UI is a little clunky, but easily manageable and hardly the worst I’ve ever encountered. You will only need to double back to places if you did a poor job searching them (I myself missed the entire woodlot) but thats par for the course for these typically point and click mystery games (Nancy Drew, Sherlock Holmes, hell- Myst?) I suspect that some people went in expecting a more action filled adventure game rather than a more exploratory one. It’s as much a ‘walking simulator’ as any of those are.

Snowmobile is functionally pointless and basically would only have helped a little during the ending portion.

Ending is not a standard one. And I can see where others would be disappointed. But when you look at this as a 1970s French noir story, emphasis on the 70s, it makes perfect sense. Pretend it’s an older movie and you’ll get it 100%.

If that sounds cool to you, play it!

I totally loved this game. The atmosphere is beautiful and just unsettling enough. I'm a wimp about scary games/jumpscares but I really enjoy slowly piecing together a mystery. This was a great balance of suspenseful but still enjoyable for me. Firewatch is one of my favorite games I've ever played, and Kona was very close to providing the same feeling, so I recommend it especially if you loved that game. If they do make a sequel to this, as I heard they planned to, I would love to play it!

A fun step into this genre. I'm a sucker for indie games that you just walk around in nature and experience things in. It reminds me a bit of the vibes from the Long Dark story mode, although more murder-mystery themed. There's plenty of achievements to warrant either one Really Really Sweaty Playthrough or a few lighthearted runs. I've done one, I'll probably come back and do some more in the future.

The story, exploration, and puzzle elements here would be good in a classic 2D point and click game where nearly every screen looks different and serves a purpose, but the 3D open-world makes it a chore to explore, especially with the constant loading of new areas. It's a slog slowly trudging through the snow from place to similar looking place, and I have no desire to backtrack if I missed something. The UI isn't great and I had trouble interacting with objects due to finicky character positioning. Success seems to be based not on putting the pieces together (the game narrates all that for you) but rather on whether or not you clicked on EVERY mundane item before you left the area. I found the premise interesting, but the gameplay wasn't compelling.

Waited for years to play this when I first played it on early access years ago. Finally went through it all and I was very surprised how good the story was. The controls were great! The voice acting was as well. Over all a 9/10 investigator story. I am very pleased to have waited till this was polished and finished!
