E-Line Media and the Cook Inlet Tribal Council have joined forces to launch Upper One Games, which is believed to tbe the very first Native American games developer. The Alaska-based company already has its first game in the works, focusing on an Inupiat girl and featuring music, stories and tools from Alaska Native culture. Set in the Arctic, it has the protagonist surviving in the wild by drawing on stories passed down by Elders. Polygon has quite an extensive feature introducing some key people and outlining the company’s aims.

    Fantastic. The more culturally varied the developers’ community becomes, the more interesting the medium will be.
