P.A.M.E.L.A. | NVYVE Studios | PC

It’s not uncommon these days to see first-person shooter titles that take place in an open world environment. That’s exactly what Canadian-based developer NVYVY Studios had in mind when deciding to take everything fans love about open world games and dystopian futures and turn it into an adventure. In P.A.M.E.L.A., nothing seems quite right in the Utopian city of Eden, a city made of malls, courtyards, residential sectors and courtyards for those inhabiting the city to enjoy.

Unfortunately for the player, nothing is as utopic as it seems as they awaken from their cryosleep. In the game, players must fight to survive as zombie-like creatures begin to emerge. To help players survive in the open world sandbox environment they are in, they are introduced to the city’s Artificial Intelligence named Pamela. Together, players and the AI must discover what happened and why the zombie creatures are attacking through the game’s environment and hidden logs, all while surviving the danger.
