Amy Will Release on Jan 17th for $9.99 and some New Screens

Amy is probably my most anticipated PSN game of all time. I got a chance to look at is closely at E3 last year, and wrote this preview. Unfortunately, we now have to wait another week to play it, however it is only going to cost $9.99 now. From what I’ve seen, the game is easily worth a full retail release, and $9.99 is going to be a steal!

Hit the jump for the official press release, a press release explaining the issue, and three awesome looking screens.

Amy for the PSN


This new video footage of Amy, shows the special relationship in the game between Lana, the playable character, and Amy, an 8-year old girl that doesn’t talk. I previewed this game at E3 and was very impressed. You can read my E3 preview and impressions post here.

December 2034. Global warming has taken effect, spreading disease and natural disasters around the world. The small town of Silver City (Midwest, USA) has been directly affected by a comet that has come crashing down. When Lana regains consciousness, everything around her is just mayhem. Violent outbursts, fury, rage, wreckage and death: the world she knew seems to have torn to Hell. As if struck by a mysterious virus, most of the ones she knew have now become part of a wild horde.
Despite her wounds, she knows she must run as far as possible to escape this nightmare: the viral process has begun inside her but she refuses to become one of them. The presence of Amy, a strange little girl who seems defenseless, will force her to make choices that will change both their lives. Infected humans, grisly creatures, Special Forces and even other survivors: they will have to trust and help each other to escape their pursuers in their attempt to survive.

Hit the jump for another video.

Amy is coming soon.

[E3 2011] Amy Preview and Impressions

I sat down at E3 with Lexis Numérique to preview their upcoming title Amy. Amy was designed by Paul Cuisset, the same guy who designed Flashback in the 90’s and its sequel for the original PlayStation, Fade to Black. I wasn’t expecting much from the game to tell you the truth. I assumed this would be another FPS zombie game for the PSN, that you would tire of after an hour or so. Well, I was way off.

Amy is a third person game, set in the near future of 2034. You play as Lana, a scientist who survives a train wreck, wakes from having blacked out, and is then chased by army gunfire into a zombie infested city. Although they are being haled as zombies, most of the creatures I saw look more like viscous, mutated creatures compared to your standard decaying body-type zombies.
