Kona: Day One Preview

Feb 7, 2016

Zere’s no Canada like French Canada! All ze other Canadas are really lame!   Kona: Day One – Parabole’s first episode of their planned survival horror series – appeared in my Steam Library like a ghost when I got the preview code.

Here’s our hands-on preview of Jay Tholen’s upcoming hug-em-up!     Dropsy is a classic 2D styled point n’ click adventure reminiscent of the many classic 90s Lucasarts titles.
