View full history
The game centers around a virus that can turn its victims into zombie-like creatures, similar to those found in the Left 4 Dead series. The main character is also a carrier of the virus. A large portion of the game revolves around making do with a scarce supply of the cure, which can be found hidden in the levels or as a reward, and the protection of little girl named Amy, who also shows the ability to cure the protagonist's ailment.
This little girl whom you have to protect through the entire game will realistically behave like a child and will explore the rooms with you, wander around and point out items of interest similar to Yorda from the game ICO. The intent was to have Amy react to her environment and display emotions naturally in order to facilitate a feeling of responsibility and care for Amy.
Lana's infection level is constantly rising, and without the constant application of medicine she will die, adding an ever present sense of urgency to the game. The player character's appearance will change dynamically to display her degree of infection; this is a separate mechanic from health. Lana's proximity to Amy is essential, as Amy emits an aura which suppresses the infection.
