Lexis Numérique announces today that AMY’s release will be on the PlayStation Network and the Xbox Live Arcade together, which comes as a turn of events since the game was planned to be a Playstation exclusive. The game is a new creation from Paul Cuisset, best known for the computer game smash hits Flashback and Moto Racer.
The story surrounding Amy is set in December 2034 and global warming has taken effect, causing widespread disease and an upsurge in natural disasters around the globe. The small town of Silver City (Midwest, USA) is directly affected – mostly by a comet that has crashed into town. As Lana, one of Silver’s stricken citizens, regains consciousness – she witnesses the onset of a new kind of mayhem. Violent outbursts, fury, rage, wreckage and death: the world she knew seems to have gone to hell.
Apparently consumed by a mysterious illness, people she once knew are now part of a wild, ravenous horde. In spite of her wounds, she runs – she must escape this nightmare. Lana can tell that, deep within her, the viral process has begun but refuses to become one of them. Later, an autistic eight-year-old girl with strange powers will force her to make choices that change both their lives. Her name is Amy.
Infected humans, grisly creatures, special forces and even other survivors: they will have to trust and help each other to escape their pursuers in a desperate attempt to survive.
Amy will be released on the Xbox LIVE Arcade, January 11th 2012 for 800 MS Points.
