VectorCell has released a new trailer for its upcoming survival horror title Amy, which shows off brand new gameplay footage, and highlights the unique relationship between the game’s protagonists. …
Amy has been a little quiet in the last while but VectorCell and Lexis Numérique have provided us with a new look into the survival-horror title. In this trailer, …
Lexis Numérique’s AMY is aiming to tame uncharted waters for an Xbox Live Arcade game. Upon its release it will be (presumably) the first XBLA title to focus on the horror genre. We knew there are plenty of horror junkies out there, and finally they too can get their bite-sized fix at an inexpensive price. No word yet on when AMY will be released, but given that the above is the first true trailer for the game it’s likely to be a ways off. While you’re waiting be sure to check out our hands-on preview of the game, and hit the jump for a demo of the game’s technology.
We hate to jinx it, but it looks like XBLA is finally getting the high quality survival horror title that we’ve all been waiting for. We took an intense hands-on tour with Lexis Numérique’s AMY at this year’s E3 in order to give you the inside skinny on this up-and-coming underdog.
First, you’ll need a run-down on the story. AMY‘s dystopian future is set in a 2034 midwestern America ravaged by some kind of comet-borne infection. You play as Lana, an infected woman that is protecting Amy: an eight-year-old autistic girl that is mysteriously immune to the infection. Naturally, Amy is being hunted by just about everyone; monsters, the military, and geneticists are all trying to get a piece of her.

Now that our trip to video game heaven has come and gone, it’s time to give you the run-down on the very best XBLA titles from E3 2011. We spent five hectic days getting our eyes and hands on every XBLA game possible and we’ve picked out fifteen games that stood out from the crowd.
At E3, a survival horror game was shown for XBLA that goes by the name of Amy from VectorCell and Lexis Numerique. You play as Lana who wakes up in Silver City in the year 2034 after a comet attack that caused a virus outbreak, spawning strange creatures. You meet up with an autistic girl named Amy who has mysterious powers and work together in order to escape the virus threat. Unfortunately, Lana is also infected which you will have to keep up to date with on the color-coded meter on your back by healing yourself or by being around Amy to keep from getting too infected. You’ll go through more infected areas and change form from woman to monster which will help around areas with lots of monsters but too much and it’ll be game over. Amy is shaping up to be an interesting XBLA title combining arcade action with survival horror elements, check out some screenshots after the break.
