I Am Alive trailer teaches you how to survive [Video]

In the post-apocalyptic world of I Am Alive, it would be an understatement to say that things are pretty messed up. You’ve got a thick, hazardous layer of dust to contend with, and buildings and architecture that look like they’ll fall apart if a light breeze passes by.

To help you stay alive in Ubisoft’s I Am Alive, the company released a trailer with a few helpful pointers to guide you through the hazardous environments. In the video, the game’s protagonist cautions players to keep their gas masks on while in the thick dust – you know, so you don’t destroy your character’s lungs – and climb up to safety to breathe fresh air.

For awhile, it seemed like I Am Alive wasn’t going to survive development. The game was announced back in 2008 and was originally targeted for a spring 2009 release – but, for reasons that Ubisoft never revealed, that didn’t happen. The developer/publisher went quiet on the game after its announcement, and it was thought to be dead until September, when Ubisoft announced that I Am Alive would be released on XBLA and PSN next year.
