Kona includes survival and supernatural elements with buildings to explore, which contain loot (tools, light) and can serve as shelters.[3] The threats include cold (solved by setting up fire) and wolves (which can be shot or distracted with raw meat).[4] There is a stress level, which increases by seeing upsetting scenes, dealing with tough situations, or having accidents. A higher stress level will decrease the sprint speed and add a shakier aim, but Carl can calm himself by smoking cigarettes and drinking beers that are spread around.[5]
