Ubisoft Has a Change of Heart, Releasing 'I Am Alive' on PC After All
By Luke Plunkett

Let's recap. In November 2011, Ubisoft creative director Stanislas Mettra said the following about I Am Alive, a game for the Xbox 360 and PS3:

But are these people just making noise just because there's no version or because it's a game they actually want to play? Would they buy it if we made it?

It's hard because there's so much piracy and so few people are paying for PC games that we have to precisely weigh it up against the cost of making it. Perhaps it will only take 12 guys three months to port the game to PC, it's not a massive cost but it's still a cost. If only 50,000 people buy the game then it's not worth it.
Mettra later softened his stance, but it still didn't sound like a PC version was on the way.

Now, in August 2012, Ubisoft has announced a PC version of the game. It'll be out on September 13, on Ubi's own service as well as Steam. If you're a PC gamer who hasn't played it, and want to show Ubisoft that a) you're not the bitching type and b) their PC piracy stats are full of shit, you should check it out. It's rough, but there's a bleak brutality there that a lot of people really appreciate.

The PC version will feature a few additions, like a replay mode to go back and retry levels, along with a new "easy" difficulty, which was needed because the console original could get pretty tough in places.
Yay! I kind of forgot about this game but wanted to try it. Guess this is just a late reminder for me.

Really, it was never that bad unless you wasted your ammo shooting at everything and everyone which your not meant to.

Most of the times I died because I did something stupid and fell to me death. Anyway good to see it's getting a release, it's a pretty solid game.

13 year olds don't conserve ammo.
