A survival horror game called Amy. I have a young niece called Amy so I can relate to the survival horror aspect of this game.
Another game coming soon from Lexis Numérique to PSN, Amy is a survival horror game set in a bleak future. Playing as Lana, who is infected with a strange virus, players must escape before the virus takes hold. But they are not alone, a young defenseless girl called Amy needs their protection as well.
- Unique & deep gameplay that features extensive cooperation with a character to be protected
— Contrary to several games with a secondary character, Amy (the child you have to protect) is neither a super warrior nor a docile character that follows you. You are able to use her small size and weight to reach inaccessible areas, ask her to do specific actions and you’ll even be able to use her mysterious gifts. But she will need to trust you and you might accept to get hurt to keep her safe.
- Story-driven survival horror game set in a cinematographic atmosphere
— Amy is based on a rich, addictive and twisted story-based scenario. Strong efforts have been put on the characters backgrounds and behaviors but also on audio, sound design and a very unique use of camera setting to create emotion
- Original stealth-action gameplay that includes fierce close combat
— Lana and Amy are often weaker than their enemies. You can choose to confront them directly by using improvised weapons for close combat. You can run or try to push them away but you can also use hiding places and prefer stealth action. Lana being infected by the virus, she mutates when exposed too long and end up dying if not cured or protected by one of Amy’s special powers. But when infected, Lana can lure her enemies and move without being attacked.
- Wide range of enemies with strong AI
— Lana and Amy are facing various kinds of enemies that can detect sounds, heat, movements and much move. They also can act in hordes and exchange information. Some groups of enemies being aggressive to each other, you can try to escape by triggering a fight between them.
- Rarely seen before quality of graphics and animation on PlayStation Network
— Amy might be one the first games on PlayStation Network with such a level of rendering detailed modeling and motion capture animation.
- Puzzles to unravel arching storyline
