I Am Alive proves it is in fact not dead
The suspiciously vapourous survival adventure game I Am Alive has suddenly surfaced on the reliably leaky Australian Classifications Board.
The game is listed as multi-platform, and was rated yesterday.
The Classification Board requires games to be in a finished state before submission, so we can probably expect a release date announcement within the next few weeks.
I Am Alive casts the player as a survivor of a mysterious destructive force which has struck Chicago.
The game began development at Darkworks, which has since gone on to make its own survival game, Black Death. Ubisoft Shanghai took over the project, but has been tight as a clam since then despite repeated requests for updates. We’ll try again.
Earlier this year it was reported that the game would release via the console networks, but this was soon revealed to have been a joke. The last official update pegged it for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 release earlier this year.
