Amy Receives a Release Date

The downloadable survival horror game is due for release in just one week.

Today, Lexis Numérique announced the release date for Amy, their upcoming survival horror game for the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. After being delayed and missing its initially scheduled fall 2011 release date, players will be able to take on the unique quest starting January 10 on PSN and January 11 on XBLA.

Following the typical survival horror archetype, Amy is based in a post-apocalyptic world where a deadly virus has gripped humanity. Brought by a comet that crash landed in the year 2034, the virus has converted most of humanity into zombie-like creatures that travel in hordes.

Players take the role of Lana who has been infected by the virus. During her effort to flee both the unruly hordes and the virus itself, Lana takes the titular Amy under her wing. The eight year old autistic girl seems to possess strange and unique powers that are fully revealed over the course of the game.

As Lana, players will have to make decisions that will change the outcome of both their lives, all while fleeing or fighting infected humans, demons, and the military. The quest will not only determine the outcome of both Lana and Amy, but of humanity itself.

Unfortunately for PlayStation 3 owners, the game will cost $2.99 more than the Xbox 360 version, which is 800 Microsoft Points ($10).

Press Release


Lexis Numerique's AMY launches on PlayStation®Network January 10th, hits the Xbox® LIVE Arcade January 11th

Champs-sur-Marne, France - January 5th, 2012 - Lexis Numérique today announced that upcoming survival horror title AMY will be available on the PlayStation® Network January 10th, and on Xbox® Live Arcade January 11th. In celebration of the upcoming release, all-new screenshots give players a sneak peek at some of the enemies Lana and Amy will be confronted by during their journey.

AMY takes place in December 2034 in the small town of Silver City (Midwest, USA) after a comet strikes, wreaking havoc on humanity and unleashing a deadly virus that has infected almost everyone. Players take on the role of Lana, who regains consciousness in the midst of all the mayhem. The world she once identified with seems to have been torn to Hell, and most of the people she knew have now become part of a wild horde. Lana feels the virus beginning to infect her and knows she must run as far as possible to escape the nightmare. The presence of the titular Amy, a seemingly defenseless eight-year-old autistic girl who has curious powers, forces her to make choices that will affect both their lives. Together, they must fight or run from the infected humans, demons and the military, in the hope of not only saving each other, but also the future of humanity

AMY was developed by VectorCell studios, supervised by Paul Cuisset, the French creator of legendary games such as Flashback or the series of Moto Racers, and will be available on PlayStation®Network January 10th for $12.99 and on Xbox LIVE January 11th for 800 MS points.

Really looking forward to this one, even if I keep forgetting the name. You know, because Amy has so many letters in it.

Track & Field II Review Rewind

In 1988, the Summer Olympics took place in Seoul, South Korea. Capitalizing on this event, Konami released the latest game in their Hyper Sports series, Konamic Sports in Seoul on the Famicom. The game was released a year later in the US as Track & Field II. If the original Track & Field were a person, it would be the humble, modest friend quietly entering the room. Track & Field II, on the other hand, is more like the gregarious guy that wants to be the life of the party. Instead of the meager eight sporting events of the first game, this one features 15 athletic events (11 of which were new to the NES series).
