Wot I Think: I Am Alive

RPS - I Am Alive is a cocktail of great ideas and wobbly delivery. It’s a game that constantly walks the line of being almost there, but always finds a way to put its foot down on the wrong side. I’ve simultaneously had a good time playing it, and always felt frustrated by its failings. It’s an odd place, and an interesting one.

Things are set in some manner of post-apocalyptic world, fallen cities clouded in heavy, poisonous dust. You are That Guy, trying to find his missing wife and daughter, while helping out anyone who doesn’t try to shoot at you along the way. It’s half climbing, half fighting, and almost always a washed out grey-tone world, with only hints of almost forgotten colour. (I Am Alive, PC)
