Kona is a narrative-driven adventure game set in Northern Canada during a massive snowstorm. Despite the harsh conditions you will need to don your detective hat and figure out where all of the people have gone and what in the world is even happening. Oh, and beware of the wolves!

Since games like these heavily depend on atmosphere and passive storytelling in order to draw you into their worlds, allow me to show you the recently posted launch trailer as it focuses on just that. Have a look:

I haven't played it myself so take the following with a few grains of salt, but according to the Steam reviews Kona appears to be pretty damn solid. Most of the people are praising its atmosphere and mystery, while the biggest complaint by far appears to be its fairly short length, which as far as complaints go isn't that high up on the list.

So if this seems like something you might enjoy you can find out more by heading over to either Steam or the official website. And finally, here's a couple of chilly images to further cement the atmosphere:
