Do you remember Delphine Software’s 1992 title Flashback? If so, you’ll be especially pleased with this news. If not, you should read it anyway, because this is a game that could be worth checking out.
It’s called Amy, and it’s being made by Paul Cuisset, the man responsible for Flashback and Moto Race. Set in the year 2034 and the fictional Silver City, Amy is about a comet that hits the Earth and causes humans to become enraged, violent monstrosities. As destruction and mutation take over, the protagonist Lana meets a strange, eponymous little girl, Amy.
Lana will have to escape the chaos and protect Amy from infected civilians, monsters and special forces units.
Sounds incredibly promising, but it also has the potential to be a glorified escort mission, and nobody likes those. Either way, Amy is an intriguing little title that’ll hit the PlayStation Network (Edit: Timed exclusive!) in Q2 2011. I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on it.
