Kona now available for Mac

Published On March 25, 2016 | By Kirk Hiner | Macintosh

Winter may be over, but the snowstorm has just begun for Mac and Linux gamers. Kona (previously titled Kôna: Day One), is available now via Steam Early Access for 33% off, with GOG soon to follow.


Set in northern Canada in 1970, Kona tells the story of a detective exploring an eerie village during a blizzard.

When private detective Carl Faubert took the case, it seemed like his simplest job in weeks. Drive north from Montreal to a small village and find out who has been vandalizing his wealthy client’s hunting manor. No sweat. But finding the area seemingly empty, Carl soon discovers that the case is much more involved than what he signed on for.

This is precisely why if I were a detective I’d make my client sign two contracts: the standard what-I’m-signing-on-for contract, and the secondary more-than-I’m-signing-on-for contract that increases my hourly rate and works in meal reimbursements.

Kona features:

  • A surreal interactive tale of mystery as you investigate the perplexing quietness in the entire town.
  • A vast, frigid Northern environment.
  • Four distinct acts (three more to come), each offering between three to five hours of gameplay.
  • An atmospheric soundtrack featuring music by Quebec folk band Curé Label.
  • An omniscient, third-person storyteller.
  • A vintage look and feel reminiscent of 1970s rural communities.

So, where has everyone gone? From where did this fierce blizzard come from? Mac gamers can now grab their shotgun, axe and chunks of meat and go find out…provided the cold Canadian North doesn’t do you in first. For more information, visit www.konagame.com.
