Namco Bandai and Lexis Numerique have announced that Red Johnson’s Chronicles – One Against All will be coming to XBLA, PSN, …
AMY was developed by VectorCell and published by Lexis Numérique. It was released on January 11, 2012 for 800 MSP. A copy was provided for review purposes.
AMY is a survival horror game much along the lines of the original Resident Evil or Silent Hill–at least that’s the plan. Unfortunately about the only things AMY and those games have in common are a good idea and some clunky controls. Apparently there’s some unwritten rule that to be a member of the survival-horror genre, your game must play like it was made in the mid to late 90’s. You are Lana, a seemingly big-hearted woman who has been infected. The task is simple, figure out what the hell is going on and keep Amy alive. Along the way you will meet several infected, a couple intriguing characters and few shady ones. Not much more to explain then that, now for the guts of this thing . . .
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.
