I first heard of Ubisoft‘s I Am Alive while browsing the Playstation Network (PSN) and was hesitantly impressed by the stills provided. A quick browse of both youtube and other review sites, gave me justification to throw down cash for this downloadable game. The idea of an post apocalyptic world to explore, minus the FPS aspects had me following the status bar eagerly. Thoughts of Corman McCarthy’s “The Road” flooded my mind, a world of inevitable decay. Ruins of buildings slowly falling further into disrepair, tough people scrabbling for survival.
