Lexis Numerique today unveiled a brand-new look into upcoming survival horror title AMY, which is scheduled for release on PSN and XBLA in January 2012!
The narrated video explains the close relationship between the two, and how they must help each other in order to survive.
Taking place in 2034 in the small town of Silver City when natural disasters around the world have wreaked havoc on humanity and unleashed a deadly virus that has infected almost everyone, players take on the role of Lana, who regains consciousness in the infested city and must protect herself and a young girl named Amy in order to escape the disease-ridden town. The narrated video introduces viewers to the storyline of the game, as well as an element that is at the heart of the core gameplay - contamination.
Players take on the role of Lana, who regains consciousness in the city now infested with wild creatures and enemies. The world she once identified with seems to have been torn to Hell, and most of the people she knew have now become part of a wild horde. Lana feels the virus beginning to infect her and knows she must run as far as possible to escape the nightmare. The presence of Amy, a seemingly defenseless eight-year-old autistic girl who has curious powers, forces her to make choices that will affect both their lives. Together, they must fight or run from the aberrations, demons and the military in the hope of not only saving each other, but also the future of humanity.
Amid this bleak scenario, the small town of Silver City in the USA’s Midwest suffers a near cataclysmic incident when it is stuck by an unidentified ‘comet’ from outer space. When lead character Lana regains consciousness, her world has descended into mayhem. Violent outbursts, fury, rage, wreckage and death; the world she knew seems to have become a living hell. As if struck by a mysterious virus, most of the people she once knew have now become part of a wild horde. Despite her wounds, Lana must run as far as possible to escape this nightmare. The viral process has also begun inside her but she refuses to become one of them. The presence of Amy, an enigmatic eight-year-old autistic girl with strange powers, who seems defenseless, will force her to make choices that will change both their lives. Both Lana and Amy will have to trust and help each other to escape various pursuers who take the form of infected humans, grisly creatures, military Special Forces and even other survivors.
