Splitkick: At its best, I Am Alive manages to put us in this uncomfortable mode of self-discovery. Your character is not out to save the world, in fact the world has already been lost. His simple goal is to find his family, a seemingly impossible task after a year’s separation and no means of communication. Without the slightest hint of direction he trudges onward, unwilling to give up like everyone else seemingly did long ago. His singular ability to maintain hope in the face of abject depravity is his only superpower.
