Lexis Numerique’s survival horror piece, Amy, has you playing as lady named Lana. Together with her newfound partner, Amy, an autistic 8-year-old with strange powers, Lana has to escape a zombie outbreak.

 

While you take control of Lana, the computer controls Amy. By pressing R1, you can take ahold of Amy’s hand. Doing this allows you to feel her heartbeat through the rumble on the controller, which you can use to gauge her stress level as you explore. While they don’t explain how, Lexis Numerique say that this will be a useful feature.

 

Holding Amy’s hand also heals Lana of the virus she’s infected with. The upside to the virus, however, is that after Lana mutates from it to a certain degree, she can blend in with the game’s monsters. You can read more about this feature here.

 

Amy is planned for release on Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network as a digital download this summer, but it doesn’t have a release date yet. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
