Way back in February we brought you the announcement of ‘Amy’, a new survival horror game with echoes of Ico’s hand-holding. We haven’t heard much since then, but it has now been confirmed that the game will be coming to both Xbox Live and PSN, previously marked as an exclusive for the latter.
Created by Paul Cuisset of Flashback and Fade to Black fame, the game is set in 2034 and sees the inevitable zombie apocalypse start off in a small town called Silver City following a comet crash. Whilst most of the population is now zombified, player character Lana is still fighting the infection – luckily for her, creepy child Amy has an immunity to the virus and can share that through touch. Unfortunately, Amy herself is terrified, inevitably, of the zombies and needs Lana to help her to safety.
You can read plenty more on the game over at the PlayStation Blog. The game’s scheduled for an autumn 2011 release on console, with a PC version to follow if it does well.
