We have developed a brand new game engine, added RPG elements and made survival horror gaming on the Apple iPhone™ a truly awesome experience”

Alive 4-ever RETURNS picks up where the original ended: A month after the outbreak of the virus accident in Nefount City, Dr. Lederman, who is a Research Director of the pharmaceutical company, was issued a warrant for his arrest due to his involvement in the accident. His plan was to smuggle the virus sample into South America by sea, and hand it over to an unknown organization. The ship accidentally wrecked on a reef, and eventually sunk somewhere around California's Marilla Island. On that same day, Greenshore City, a beachfront city with smooth sand and pristine water on Marilla Island was packed full of tourists as usual. A lifeguard didn't pay attention and was sleeping on the job until he discovered the terrible situation, but it was too late, and the beach was quickly covered in blood! Still in a state of shock, the lifeguard didn't see the infected person who had climbed the lifeguard tower, and the situation quickly got out of control. As one of only four survivors it is your mission to take control of the situation.

"Alive 4-ever RETURNS reinvents one of the best survival shooter games in the App Store,” said Eros Resmini, VP of Marketing and Developer Relations at OpenFeint.“The game is fantastic and you can tell Meridian really invested in making some amazing improvements.”
