Watch the 2019 AFN Convention live on GCI Channel 907

October 15, 2019

GCI also sponsoring gaming lounge, featuring ‘Never Alone’ video game

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Amidst the Taģiuģmiut Dancers, speeches from leaders and dignitaries, and in-depth discussions on some of the state’s most important issues is a place to kick your feet up and recharge at the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention this week in Fairbanks, courtesy of GCI. In partnership with Cook Inlet Tribal Council, a gaming lounge – complete with couches, tables and charging stations – will feature iPads loaded up with the Iñupiaq-inspired game, Never Alone. GCI is a Denali-level sponsor of the 2019 AFN Convention.

Never Alone is an award-winning game developed by E-Line Media in partnership with CITC and influential members of the Alaska Native community. The first-of-its-kind atmospheric puzzle platform game is inspired by Iñupiaq folklore, stories and characters handed down over generations through traditional storytelling. For GCI, the first company to bring 1 GIG gaming speeds to Alaskans, partnering with CITC to host a gaming lounge was a natural fit. Find out more about Never Alone at http://neveralonegame.com/.
