Mysterious cataclysmic event, surviving everyman... nothing more than a "The Road" rip-off. They just had to name it "The Road - The Game"! :-)
If you saw "The Road" and played "I am Alive" you'd know that your comment is isn't exactly true.
The Road is probably one of the bleakest, no hope left, everything is simply dead, movie. It's an awesome movie, simply due to the fact that they kept true to the hopelessness, and how utterly dark, atmospheric, somber, and void the end of the world would be.
I am Alive still has hope, kind of like Fallout 3 without the mutants... Still pockets of society trying to stay alive. Very good, underrated game.
@mindpurge Yeah, I guess so, I'm getting this game 100%. Do you see the smile at the end of my previous comment? ;-)
@mindpurge @YanniBG Good to mention that. Not every survival necessarily needs mutated enemies and a whopping ultra violence. I am alive tries to be a survival in a realistic way and that makes the game intriguing. To tell the truth, I'm sick of the same repetitive games. And the guy above is not right, im alive do have some violence there even if it is avoidable in contrast with that road movie. We need more games like this what... freestyle maybe? Im heading to the store in a while to see that.
