I Am Alive was released for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network earlier this year, receiving a warm critical reception. According to Ubisoft, I Am Alive for the PC has been "enhanced" with higher resolutions and sharper graphics for those with capable rigs.

Additionally, I Am Alive for the PC boasts two modes not available for its console cousins. These are Easy mode, which allows for infinite retries and a "smoother introduction" to the game, and Replay, which allows users to play levels again.

Those who preorder I Am Alive for the PC through the UbiShop will score a free copy of Outerlight's 2010 first-person shooter Bloody Good Time.

Last year, it appeared that a PC version of I Am Alive might not see the light of day. Creative director Stanislas Mettra said in November that the likelihood of piracy would make a PC port's profitability uncertain.

I Am Alive tells the story of an everyman searching for his wife and daughter after a mysterious but cataclysmic event. This man returns to his hometown, Haventon, a year later to find the city in ruins, with its inhabitants taking "necessary actions" to survive.
