I Am Alive rating reminds us that the game is coming

Surely I'm not the only one who forgot I Am Alive was still in existence? We've heard nothing about it from Ubisoft in recent months, which wouldn't be such a big deal had E3 not just taken place.

A listing on the Australian Classification Board's website indicates this isn't vaporware. The multiplatform rating notes "strong violence" with its MA 15+ classification. The game is about a post-earthquake Chicago, after all. We can't have mere children running around the city in those conditions.

While the premise is still somewhat intriguing, I can't recall the last time a game was rarely shown throughout its development only to miraculously amaze us all in the end.
