P.A.M.E.L.A, a game that seems to want to defy many horror tropes in one, has been officially greenlit on Steam! The gorgeous, futuristic survival FPS game has been quoted as being inspired by games like Mass Effect - it shows.
P.A.M.E.L.A Rebirth Trailer
The premise is something akin to Bioshock, in a sense. The environment is a dystopian, violent arena that is divided up by man's want for technological advancement. The player is promised to meet with numerous factions, including the main antagonist in the Afflicted, deformed and agonized remnants of mankind's downfall.
Glancing at the graphics, it is astounding to think that a four man team created a world that looks to rival most triple A games. It certainly doesn't look gritty, depressing or dark like many horror games. In fact, it defies even Mass Effect and Bioshock, its influencers, in how stunningly colorful and vibrant the world of P.A.M.E.L.A is.
It also promises a unique AI. Each interaction with the Afflicted and other groups will vary wildly based on what the player does or has acted like, apparently. It is interesting to think that no two interactions could be the same and adds a very unpredictable element to the fear factor of P.A.M.E.L.A.
The release date is currently set as TBD 2016. While we wait for Mass Effect: Andromeda, this beauty may very well give more than anyone is expecting and even satisfy that Mass Effect itch.
