indie studio Lexis Numérique has announced a release date for Amy,
the survival-horror thriller whose sleeper campaign has been building
for some months now. Offering a psychological twist on the
biohazards-'n'-undeads formula, the title comes with the pedigree of
French games legend Paul Cuisset – the veteran designer responsible
for Space Harrier, Operation Wolf, Flashback: The Quest for Identity,
and, um, Shaq Fu.
January 11, you'll be able to try Amy against Cuisset's past efforts
for yourself, when the game debuts on PSN for $12.99 and XBLA for 800
MSP ($10). Yes, for some reason the PlayStation 3 version costs $3 more. No. We have no idea why. It might be a typo or a mistake, but that's what the game's official Facebook page says.
Here's a few new shots of the game's enemies, infected with an extraterrestrial virus and left to maraud a world ravaged by Global Warming. An Inconvenient Truth never warned us about this sort of thing.
