I Am Alive Gets ESRB Rating

By Mark Delaney, 6 years ago
If you've been following I Am Alive since it was announced, you know the game has been trapped in development hell for a few years now. After losing its original developer and lead game designer, and then getting shuffled around between being an XBLA title and a retail title, it seemed evident the game may never crawl out of the rubble.

However, new hope has emerged in the form of an official rating from North America's game ratings board, the ESRB. They have officially emblazoned all future releases of the game with an M (Mature) rating.

Furthermore, the ESRB detailed reasons for the 17+ rating and, if you're interested, it reveals a bit about how the game will play.

About a month ago, footage of the game was leaked online, though the time-frame of the footage was never determined.

There is still no word on when the game will actually come out, if at all. But the fact that it is built enough to be given an official rating is encouraging news for anyone who has held out hope about this survival-action game.
