Ubisoft's I Am Alive, previously available on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, will be making its PC debut as a digital download on September 13th. The game is part of a recent trend in atmospheric survival simulations (re: DayZ, Minecraft), where you have to use the tools in your environment to either stay alive or to overcome challenges.
I Am Alive has you playing the role of a father who is searching for his missing wife and daughter in a post-apocalyptic setting. The people you encounter may be friends or foes, and you'll have to decide whether to forage or barter with individuals to receive food, medicine, water and tools. Your protagonist has limited stamina, which will be put to the test while attempting to traverse a world filled with toxic ash, collapsed buildings and other dangers.
In addition to supporting higher resolutions, the PC version also includes two new modes. An easy mode is designed to be less punishing to players, allowing them an infinite number of attempts, while a replay mode lets players revisit earlier areas of the game to search for hidden items and secrets.
