This looks interesting:
It is described as a survival game where you have to find your missing girlfriend in the ruins of Chicago (hmm...sounds a bit like Cloverfield). This isn't a shooter either, as guns aren't prevalent (but they do exist). Rather, the gamer is expected to use other skills/tricks/etc. as he makes his way through the devastation (as in the video).
What has me interested is that the game only lasts nine days. In other words, it doesn't have a grand, free ranging scope as in Fallout 3, but seems more focused along the lines of Left 4 Dead. I am curious how they are going to be able to pack in enough gameplay to make it interesting over the long haul. L4D accomplished this with a wicked-fun multiplayer component. Can it be done with a single player game, too? One that isn't a FPS, no less?!?
Unfortunately, pessimism might be the best attitude to take as the game is slated for a March release and there has yet to be any gameplay videos released. Even the official website lacks any details at this point! That's never a good sign. I suppose if it bombs, there is always the inevitable video game based upon The Road (you know it's going to happen if the movie is a hit....).
