Putting the project on life support
I Am Alive may have gone through several iterations since its original reveal way back at E3 2008, but it continues to intrigue despite the game’s clearly troubled development cycle.

One year after the Event, a worldwide cataclysmic event that wiped most of the human race, a man struggles for survival in a desolate city as he tries to reunite with his long lost wife and daughter.
In this believable post-apocalyptical tale, there are no supernatural threats, just an everyman who faces the permanent insecurity of a now decaying and hazardous world and humanity’s darkest inclinations. Will you hang on to your humanity and help strangers or are you ready to sacrifice others in order to survive?
- The dead city of Haventon, immersive and treacherous
Explore the destroyed, crumbling city across different atmospheric levels, climbing your way to safety.
Environments tell the story of the world as it stood before and of what happened to the city and its people.
- Unpredictable encounters
Survivors will adopt different behaviors and adapt to your actions. Some are friendly and need assistance, some are scared and others are hostile and will use group tactics to take you down. Will you go out of your way and sacrifice your few precious resources to help those in need?
- A unique intimidation-based combat gameplay
Combat is deadly and ammo is scarce. Players will have to use deception to deal with enemies. Cowards may bow down fast to the threat of an empty gun, but tough guys will put you to the test.
- Stamina and resources management
Every effort has its cost. Manage your stamina skillfully to gain access to hidden paths and resources.
Look for resources and supplies scattered throughout the city: water, food, gas, medicine, tools, climbing gears, weapons and ammo… anything that you can salvage from the destroyed city could prove helpful in your quest.
