Survival Adventure Game I Am Alive Shines In This Preview From CES 2012News
In this preview you are going to get a little look at the Xbox Live Houseparty title I Am Alive.
The plot of this downloadable, third-person game is bare bones and basic: Some unspecified cataclysm involving earthquakes has struck the planet and killed nearly everyone, and the main character must traverse a dangerous, nightmare-scape in a quest to reunite with his wife and child. Not a terribly original concept, but an affecting one nonetheless.
Now, you might be expecting zombies, or aliens, but nope. I Am Alive is survival-horror without the supernatural. Enemies are simply other people, driven to madness and extremes by a worldwide collapse. It’s not cheery, but it’s a powerful idea. Think Cormac McCarthy’s The Road instead of The Road Warrior.
From this little insight what are your feelings on Xbox Live Houseparty? Or more importantly, I Am Alive? Is it something that you are excited about experiencing, or would you you even bother experiencing it until you see what it is like more so later on? Let us know.
