Developer: Darkworks
Age Rating: ESRB Mature | PEGI 18

I Am Alive very nearly wasn't, but this acrobatic survival horror was eventually plucked from its near decade-long limbo by a new development team, which trimmed Darkworks' ambitious game down into a few hours of sneaking, shooting and climbing.

Set one year after a very Earthquakey event devastated America, the game sees you attempting to find your family amidst the smoggy ruins of your former hometown, while battling the various bandits, desperate survivors and tall buildings that stand in your way.

Bullets are a rarity, so combat is a brutal game of bluffing and sneaky stabbings. Exploration, meanwhile, evokes a tense Uncharted, thanks to a stamina bar that ticks down as you climb.
