AMY trailer outs human enemies, enemy encounter strategies

The latest trailer for Lexis Numérique’s downloadable horror title, AMY, demonstrates an old-school horror focus on avoiding combat wherever possible.

Although AMY’s main hazard are the zombie-like mutants, the trailer shows Lana and Amy have more to contend with on their journey to the hospital, hinting at a conspiratorial side to the story.

You’ll notice some features becoming common in the survival genre – degrading weapons, stealth – but AMY has several unique features to offer, too. The light you see on protagonist Lana’s back shows her infection status; stray too far from Amy, her child companion, and you’ll turn. See previous coverage for more information.

AMY is due via digital distribution, although after several delays no release date or firm platform schedule has been revealed.
