RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

[UPDATE] I Am Alive Gets Rated By the ESRB

Posted on Monday, September 26 @ 12:27:12 Eastern by

[UPDATE]: Apparently there's an I Am Alive website with a trailer I've never seen before. Impending release date anyone?

In another oddly mysterious move, I Am Alive continues to reaffirm its existence through not-so-official channels of communication. Previously appearing in an "unreleased" trailer, the ESRB now has the priveledge of rating it with an M for Mature.

Describing I Am Alive as:

an action game in which the players assume the role of a man who must find his family in a post-apocalyptic world. From a third-person perspective, players traverse through city ruins and use a machete to kill human enemies in melee-style combat. Battles are accompanied by realistic gunfire, slashing sounds, and cries of pain; characters emit brief splashes of blood when hit. Players have the ability to kill or knock unconscious wounded/vulnerable enemies via finishing moves (e.g. throat slashing, impaling, pistol-whipping); these scenes are highlighted by close-up camera angles and increased player control (e.g. on-screen prompts with button-press sequences). During the corse of the game, players encounter women who can be saved from nearby enemies; sexual mistreatment is sometimes implied in the dialogue (e.g. "These guys kept me as their pet, or mascot, or something."). One sequence depicts the background silhouette of a man fondling and threatening a captured female survivor; the exchange includes phrases such as "Do you hear me? Don't touch me!" and "Don't be like that. You know I can make your life a lot easier if you would just cooperate." The words "p***y," "f**k," and "sh**" can be heard in the dialogue.

Aren't ESRB rating descriptions fun?! I Am Alive has been rated for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. We'll keep an eye out for a project long thought dead, but, oddly, is claiming life.
