P.A.M.E.L.A. [official site], the upcoming sci-fi survival horror FPS from Canadian studio NVYVE, has been Greenlit after reaching the number one spot just two days after launching on Steam Greenlight. When we last visited P.A.M.E.L.A. earlier this year, information was thin on the ground. A whole lot more has been dropped since, including a trailer, and it looks equally as pretty as it does terrifying. Take a peek:
As you can see, the game's redolent Eden setting, it seems, has gone a bit wrong. Gone is the one-time paradise of yore and, unfortunately, in its place lies a Rapture-esque dystopian nightmare. With sentient AI PAMELA by your side, you'll guide the protagonist from their cryostasis slumber and onwards to explore the once vibrant city, to uncover the tragic events that led to its downfall, and to escape to safety. It's not exactly a fresh concept to build a video game around, but it is one which looks very pretty, very fun and very scary all at once.
Even if the hero adopts similar arm gestures to these guys.
Speaking to P.A.M.E.L.A's rather rapid Greenlight success, NVYVE's top dog Marvin Maalouf said: “We have been blown away by the response of the Steam community to our Greenlight campaign. After only 48 hours after our launch, P.A.M.E.L.A. was the number one ranked game on Steam Greenlight and we are incredibly proud to be Greenlit by Steam after 10 days."
Given NVYE is a team comprised of just four folk, this - not to mention just how accomplished P.A.M.E.L.A looks at this stage - is pretty good going. Expect to see P.A.M.E.L.A's full release at some stage next year.
