Module 2 | Post 5 Video Game “Kisima Innitchua” (Never Alone)

This is a video game from the website Games for Change.   The mission statement for this group is “Catalyzing Social Impact Through Digital Games”.  One of their feature games for education is Kisima Innitchua or Never Alone.  The background for the game provided on the site reads “We paired world class game makers with Alaska Native storytellers and elders to create a game which delves deeply into the traditional lore of the Iñupiat people to present an experience like no other.”   Interesting development in the creation of online media that brings awareness to and is built in collaboration with indigenous cultures.  Is this technology adapted to fit the storytelling culture of the community or the storytelling culture adapted to fit in a popular culture of video gaming and entertainment?
