Horror fans rejoice! Lexis-Numerique’s intriguing new downloadable horror title, Amy has been rather quiet as of late, ever since it was delayed from its original 2011 release date. Fortunately, a release date has not only been confirmed, it is next week. AMY will hit PSN for $12.99 (Europe: €9.9/UK: £7.99), and XBLA for 800 MSP on January 11, 2012.
The game is poised to deliver a much-needed kick in the pants to the survival horror genre, and promises some innovating gameplay while returning to the genre’s roots. We at VGW have been keenly interested in this title since it was announced last year. Set a few years in the future, AMY will follow a young woman named Lana, as she fights both infection and the infected of a midwestern town. Together with the titular character, Amy, gamers will make their way through the horrific wasteland, surviving any way they can.
