Amy’s gameplay to eschew combat for tactical viral management

Friday, 8th April 2011 03:59 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Lexis Numerique’s PlayStation Network exclusive survival horror, Amy, will feature “fierce close combat”, but most of the time, you’ll need your noggin to escape the roaming mutant enemies.

Siliconera reports the titular Amy is a young autistic girl with strange, powers, who acts as a support partner for protagonist Lana.

Amy has the ability to heal Lana of the mutating virus unleashed by a meteor strike, granting Lana the power to manage her infection.

Mutate too far, and Lana’s life is on the line, but an infected player can pass more easily among enemies without detection.

Amy will have other powers which are yet to be detailed, and will also be able to access locations Lana can’t. You’ll need to earn the young girl’s trust before you’ll have access to these capabilities.

Amy is a new project from Flashback creator Paul Cuisset, and is expecte to release on the PSN in June.

    There’s a very brief, and not very interesting, gameplay snippet here:

    That looks pretty fucking good, hope it is, I need a decent survival horror.

    Hopefully it plays well and shows other developers what a proper horror game should play like.

    It looks extremely interesting to me. Reminds me of Siren. These intense and emotional horror tales only exist in very few numbers. Too few in my opinion. This might push me to re-download Siren: The Blood Curse again.

    I wonder what that game ( was about. Perhaps a Siren with MOVE?

    If you guys want good horror, play Amnesia, sadly… After playing that no “survival horror” game can hold a candle :(
