Champs-sur-Marne, France - January 11th, 2012 - Lexis Numérique today announced that the highly anticipated survival horror title AMY is available worldwide on Xbox® Live Arcade for 800 MS points. Amy is also now available on the PlayStation™ Network in Europe for €9.99, in the UK for £7.99, in Australia for AUD 15.95 and in New Zealand for NZD 18.90. AMY will be available on the PlayStation™ Network in the US on January 17 th, 2012 for $9.99.
AMY takes place in December 2034 in the small town of Silver City (Midwest, USA) after a comet strikes, wreaking havoc on humanity and unleashing a deadly virus that has infected almost everyone. Players take on the role of Lana, who regains consciousness in the midst of all the mayhem. The world she once identified with seems to have been torn to Hell, and most of the people she knew have now become part of a wild horde. Lana feels the virus beginning to infect her and knows she must run as far as possible to escape the nightmare. The presence of the titular Amy, a seemingly defenseless eight-year-old autistic girl who has curious powers, forces her to make choices that will affect both their lives. Together, they must fight or run from the infected humans, demons and the military, in the hope of not only saving each other, but also the future of humanity
AMY was developed by VectorCell studios under the supervision of Paul Cuisset - the French creator of legendary games such as Flashback and the series Moto Racers - and published by Lexis Numérique.
“AMY is an attempt to bring innovation in the horror genre and a way to reach a wider audience than the mere survival horror fans,” said Paul Cuisset.
“AMY might be one of most ambitious digital console games to date, and we are really happy with our partnership with Paul Cuisset and VectorCell,” said José Sanchis, CEO of Lexis Numérique.
AMY is rated “M” (Mature) by the ESRB for Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence and Strong Language. To download the all-new launch trailer please go to: http://bhimpact.gamespress.com/product_page.asp?i=1209
