Kona II: Brume is a frostbitten supernatural thriller where a detective investigates a mysterious mist that’s disrupting the balance of nature in a rural mining village in Northern Canada.
Following on from the events of the original Kona, Kona II: Brume sees you stepping back into the shoes of Detective Carl Faubert as he investigates a mystery (and tries to survive) in the snowy landscapes of Northern Québec. Again, it takes place in the rural mining village of Kona and sees you unravelling the mystery of a strange mist/blizzard (called the Brume), which can freeze people in unbreakable ice, turn wildlife into ferocious beasts and turn men to madness.
The demo build of Kona II: Brume takes around 30 minutes to play through and features a little boat trip, a trek through the snow and exploration of the recently deceased William Haimilton’s vast mansion. There is a tiny bit of combat and minor survival elements, but on the whole it’s more about narrative and exploration (though the combat will likely play a larger part in the full game).
It’s a visually stunning game with beautiful snowy landscapes and highly detailed interiors inside Hammilton’s massive mansion. It makes for a very cinematic experience and the omniscient narrator does a great job of pulling you into the story. A beautiful frostbitten thriller that will give you chills.
