The details and information continues to come in short, staccato bursts of intriguing statements and quotes, and although we want more, we take what we can get.

More information regarding the creative and somewhat original I Am Alive project has surfaced. According to PSU, the game is currently in development at Darkworks (responsible for the likes of Cold Fear and Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare ), and players will adopt the role of Adam Collins. Collins is apparently just a regular guy who gets caught in the midst of a massive natural catastrophe, and he'll have to use everything at his disposal to stay alive. We brought you an earlier story outlining a few other details, and we'd like to remind you that weapons and combat isn't the focus; intuition and an instinct for survival is. And they are indeed using a first-person view, which will bring you as close to the action as humanly possible. You'll have to work your way through collapsing buildings, great chasms in the earth, and any number of obstacles that will impede your progress. Valuable items are no longer things like money and fancy cars; all that went out the door when Mother Nature went nuts. Now, you will search high and low for the bare essentials, like water.

This here is the first official image of the game, which is scheduled to release some time later this year. We always love ambition when it comes to game development, and something this creative definitely has our attention. There have been similar titles before ( Disaster Report , for one), but they really only scratched the surface. In this new generation, we're hoping for a lot more in the way of authenticity…

@ Zorigo It's a good movie, no vamps but instead a better-thought-out approach to zombies (Created through an unfortunate mutation in a retro virus used to cure cancer) Check it out on Blu Ray.

Forget the movie, read the book. Classic, as proved by Hollywood's third time and counting on reproducing the story on the big screen.

The movie I AM Legend was based off was pretty good too, the name slips my mind but it was with Vincent Price, its a pretty good movie.

Loved Disaster Report and its sequel Raw Danger. Imported both and picked up the U.S. localization too.

The Wii's Day of Disaster is also similar.

The defining experience of this past holiday season for me was exploring post-apocalyptic Washington DC in Fallout 3, so any time I can scavenge the wastes of Post-Apocalyptia I'm on board. It's just too bad 3Dawg won't be there to keep me entertained.

I hope this is way less annoying than Fallout3 myself(I waited years for a new fallout and, for me, Bethesda blew it big time-lost the Fallout atmos, gave us two borked shooting mechanisms and gave us more glitches than (the way supeior in my eyes) Oblivion.
Still don't have any clue about this one really though do we?

Are there actual "enemies"? I'd love a survival game that didn't pit me against the generic zombie. I'd much rather survive a natural disaster, IMO.

there is a video I saw a while back that showed the main character running from a bunch of people that wanted to take his bottle of water. I think that you will be fighting with regular desperate people.
