104w ago - Today Djamil Kemal at Lexis Numerique has posted up a video trailer announcing that Amy for the PS3 is returning to the roots of survival horror.
To quote: As we get closer to the release of the game, which will be early next year, we wanted answer a question that has been asked many times: what kind of survival-horror game is Amy?
How do players cope with enemies? What kind of weapons can you use?
To answer those questions and more, we created the following video just for you:
As you can see, Amy is not about giving you huge power against enemies and giving players an action-oriented experience. Amy goes back to the roots of the survival-horror genre, and provides edge-of-your-seat suspense that will keep you wondering what's around the next corner.
While most games in the genre choose to either be action- or combat-based, or instill fear by making players feel vastly less powerful than their enemies, Amy combines the best of both worlds.
Paul Cuisset, the man behind Amy (and classic games such as Flashback), wanted to a new dimension, which is the cooperation between Amy and Lana.

110w ago - Today Djamil Kemal at Lexis Numerique has shared some PS3 video footage dubbed Surviving the Horror of Amy: Salvation is Within Reach.
To quote: PlayStation fans have been following the development of AMY for some time now and have been giving us tremendous support - we sincerely thank you for that.
Others are just discovering this original upcoming PSN survival-horror game for the first time. What none of you have seen is the actual gameplay that lies at the heart of the game: the very unique relationship between Amy and Lana, our lead character.
When you mention 'a very unique relationship' in a video game, it may bring to mind ICO, a game that many of us consider a milestone in video game history.
The recent re-release of the HD version by PlayStation brought back many memories for us. The first time you finished ICO, what remained was great emotional depth and a rare feeling of empathy for Yorda, the young woman you try to protect.
Before playing ICO, the simple idea of protecting a non-playable character seemed tedious and dull. And yet, in ICO, you never had the feeling of doing a long escort mission. You really wanted to protect her.
118w ago - Lexis Numerique's Djamil Kemal has posted up some fresh Amy: The Faces of Horror PlayStation 3 video footage today for fans below!
To quote: If you've been following the development of Amy, you probably know that we're trying to make a unique survival-horror game for PSN.
We're working hard to bring a different gameplay based on a deep interaction between Lana, a young woman who is the lead character, and Amy, an eight year-old child, set in a horrific environment. Soon, we'll give you many more details on some of the key elements of the gameplay.
But for now, we wanted to show you that, even for a downloadable game, we're trying our best to bring you real flesh-and-blood characters. You can meet two of them in the new videos below.
First, a quick primer on the world of Amy. It's 2035, and global warming has intensified beyond mankind's control.
Floods, hurricanes, and other natural disasters are claiming lives with increasing regularity.
And in Silver City, the site of a recent comet impact, a mysterious viral outbreak has begun transforming a large percentage of the populace into horrific monstrosities. This is the final straw for Father John, a priest in Silver City: He's convinced that the outbrerak...
