Every step, each bullet and all energy must be expertly managed in I Am Alive. Leave yourself short at a crucial moment and you risk perishing – or even worse, betraying your own values to pull through.
Some survivors will be only too happy to see a friendly face and may ask you for help. Obliging them improves your overall score while reinforcing the sense that you are a good person in a decaying world.
Others will see you as a threat – and this is where your true survival instinct really kicks in. Often a group of scavengers will spot you. If you raise your gun, you risk them opening fire. So you need to work out how to take out the most aggressive members and then intimidate the rest into surrendering.
All this uses stamina, the fuel that lets you climb, sprint and fight to safety, although if you do fail, there are a limited number of retry options available. You can find more of these, along with climbing gear, new weapons, batteries, food and anything else that might help your quest scattered around.
Explore the ruins of Haventon, preserve your sanity and never submit to the barbarity that has claimed the city. You may well be alive – but can you keep your own humanity intact?
