PRESENTATION • Alan Gershenfeld, E-Line Media, Youth Gaming Studios & "Never Alone"

Stagecoach Foundation and NM TechWorks are proud to present Alan Gershenfeld, Founder, President, E-Line Media, Youth Gaming Studios, and publisher of the world-renowned and award-winning "Never Alone" game created in collaboration with the Iñupiat Alaskan Native community.

Never Alone (Kisima Innitchuna) was developed in partnership with the Cook Inlet Tribal Council (CITC), a pioneering Alaska Native organization, with the goal of sharing, celebrating and extending Alaska Native culture with a global audience.  The game explores a story passed down for thousands of years, is in the Inupiat language and features 26 mini-documentaries that get unlocked through gameplay.

Never Alone has touched a nerve globally.  It has been downloaded over 3 million times, featured in over 750 articles (including the Guardian, BBC, NPR, the New Yorker, LA Times and many others) and nominated for virtually every major game award (winning a British Academy Award and Game of the Year at Games for Change).  CITC has converted their revenue participation in the game into equity in E-Line and they are now our largest shareholder and our Chairman is CEO of the Tribal Council.

E-line Media is now in active development on two major impact game projects - one on the future of the Ocean and the other that helps youth go from 'conjuring to scripting to coding' through a 3D immersive game.  Here is some background on Eline Media's youth game making initiatives:http://elinemedia.com/youth-programs/
