Independent developer NVYVE has announced that their upcoming sci-fi survival horror game, P.A.M.E.L.A. is set to enter Steam’s Early Access on March 9.
The game, which seems to blend Bioshock with long-running Early Access title, DayZ, will see players thrust into Eden, a failed Utopian world that’s overseen by the titular P.A.M.E.L.A., an artificial intelligence that’ll become the players best companion during their time in the game.
The great thing about P.A.M.E.L.A. is that it looks like it could break the mould of rehashed open world survival games which seem to be plaguing Early Access right now. Rather than just creating a world for players to explore, the developers have managed to form the world of Eden into a character of its own, which is impressive.
Eden itself is a fallen utopian world that’s the result of humanity’s lust for enhancements in technology and biology. Throughout the game players will survive this harsh environment with P.A.M.E.L.A. by their side, uncovering the stories of the lives of citizens who used to live within Eden before things went horribly wrong.
One of the main adversaries within P.A.M.E.L.A. are the Afflicted; maligned citizens of Eden who were driven mad by the horrific biological outbreak which turned Eden into what it is now.
