For thousands of years, we told stories from one generation to the next. Our stories help us to understand how the world is ordered and our place within it. But what good are old stories if the wisdom they contain is not shared?

In Never Alone, players take on the roles of Nuna, a young Iñupiaq girl and an Arctic fox, in an atmospheric puzzle platformer that combines traditional folklore, stories, settings, and characters handed down over many generations by Alaska Native people whose roots and heritage date back millennia. 

Featuring imagery and themes drawn directly from Iñupiat and other Alaska Native cultures, Never Alone features striking visuals, emphasizes the sensibilities and perspective of these indigenous Arctic people and requires players to work cooperatively to succeed in challenging and harsh environments. [x]

Can we also talk about how this is being created by the first indigenous game company in the US?

I saw the dev session at Eurogamer and the story of the studio is absolutely amazing. They had the most beautiful photo of one of the most respected storytellers, a woman in her eighties, utterly delighted by the game, controller in hands.

Definitely pick this up and support the wonderful people behind this game.

This is the type of game I’ve been waiting forever for.

New comic!

Yeah, I might have watched a movie and gotten kind of mad.

This is seriously a trope I’d love to never see again though.

More details about Disney’s Moana

Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, Aladdin).
In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.
“John and I have partnered on so many films—from The Little Mermaid to Aladdin to The Princess and the Frog,” said Clements. “Creating Moana is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.”
“Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”

I can’t find anything about this on any official Disney sites. It’s not even on the Hub. I’m pretty sure this is still fake.

You are the only one that knows and understands your own struggle.

You should not have to make excuses for people who don’t want to understand your illness.

You set your own limits

You determine what is valid when it comes to your disorder.

This is your struggle.

Don’t let anyone try to invalidate it.

You are so strong for waking up today.

You are awesome.

This is not a photo manipulated picture. This is one of many of our fallen soldiers. Their remains are gathered up and bagged and sold as some merchandise like their lives are some sick joke.
With your help, we can end this disgrace and bring these fallen warriors home to their families instead of placed on shelves.

You know what I’m starting to think you guys aren’t even being sarcastic with this anymore

They’re not making a mockery out of the hijab or wearing it for fun they’re standing up for their friend. I wear the hijab and if my friends did this for me I’d start crying so shut up?

I’m sick of magical worlds with no technology. I want fairy run coffee shops where you can get a latte with a shot of charisma, because you’ve got a big presentation you’re worried about, or witches working at Apple selling phones that automatically appear in your pocket if you accidentally leave it somewhere, or psychics running hair salons who always know how you want your hair to look, or aura reader therapists. I just really want normalized magic in modern society
