Ubisoft's I Am Alive looked all set to join Sadness as the next big game that was never going to happen, but an ESRB content summary has been recently spotted that seems to say otherwise. We've had a few tips pointing it out (thanks guys!), so it seems that I Am Alive is not dead yet.
"This is an action game in which players assume the role of a man who must find his family in a post-apocalyptic world," claims the rating board. "From a third-person perspective, players traverse through city ruins and use a machete to kill human enemies in melee-style combat. Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, slashing sounds, and cries of pain; characters emit brief splashes of blood when hit."
The ESRB doesn't normally rate games until they're close to ready, which would be quite surprising given how quiet the development's been. In any case, it's received an M-rating for its violent content and harsh language, so this isn't one for the kiddies.
After such a lengthy development cycle and this new hint that the game is suddenly in a presentable form, I can't help feeling cynical about how it must look play. Nevertheless, it's been so long that I'm aching to see what it's like.
