“If you like a challenging post-apocalyptic platforming adventure game, [ …] this game is worth every penny.” [-Xbox Addict]
“I Am Alive's desperate scenarios and inventive gameplay should not be missed by masochistic gamers interested in entering a world of unrelenting dread.” [- Game Informer]
“…I Am Alive is a remarkable accomplishment. Not only does it create an atmospheric world that feels real enough to identify with, but it succeeds at delivering a unique experience geared towards an adult audience …”. [– Destructoid]
After having conquered hundreds of thousands of die hard survival enthusiasts and fans of dark post-apocalyptic fictions on consoles, I Am Alive, the ground breaking survival adventure game is finally coming to PC digital platforms.
I Am Alive casts the player as a lone survivor in a believable, dark and insecure post-apocalyptic world. One year after the Event, a worldwide cataclysmic event that wiped most of the human race, a man struggles for survival in a desolate city as he tries to reunite with his long lost wife and daughter.

I've been constantly complaining about how most games are developed with only consoles in mind, thus lacking in quality story, storytelling and content. Well, I'm proud to say that, even though I am Alive is obviously a console port, it has all the things I'd expect from a top notch old school PC game. I mean I don't go back and play 2000 era games for no reason.
This game provides an excellent setting for you to do whatever you wish. The only thing that is required of you is to survive. It is completely up to you whether you're going to help those in need or not. And the reward is not substantial, so as a gaming perspective helping people isn't really necessary.
On the other hand the game is so good at sucking you in that, I felt obliged to help people as best as I could. I often thought, "what would I do?" and reacted accordingly. Played it in normal mode, and let me say that I'm no expert at quicktime events and all that new stuff console games require me but playing this game was really an immersing experience.
Definitely reccommend it to everyone.
