Survival horror Amy is looking really good, scary

Lexis Numérique's Amy mixes dark survival horror with one long cooperative escort mission with space diseases and pissed off zombies. Sorry to make a call on a game I haven't played yet, but that sounds f*cking awesome.

The game is set in the year 2034. You play as Lana, a gal that is starting to turn zombie from a space virus that crashed into her home town. She gets help with her condition from an unlikely partner, an eight-year-old autistic girl named Amy. When Amy is around, the inner zombie calms down. 

A new trailer shows off how Lana and Amy deal with enemies. Being a duo of normal girls, fighting isn't one of their strengths. This trailer shows that stealth and careful one-on-one fights are needed to progress. Oh, and Amy has a few tricks up her little sleeves.

I'm looking forward to spending some time with Amy. Not the girl. The game. This latest trailer shows that it's coming along nicely. My only concern? That camera in the last bit of combat. That looks like it's going to piss me off when it comes to multi-enemy fights.
