Pamela is an open-world survival horror game set within the once utopian city of Eden, now nothing more than a breeding ground for otherworldly monstrosities. In order to survive you will need to learn how to utilize a wide array of high-tech weaponry and equipment, build temporary shelters and carefully manage the city's dwindling power supply, and hopefully figure out a way to get the hell out of there.

If you're wondering what all of this might look like in gameplay terms, you'll find the recently posted trailer down below. But before you do, just bear in mind that Pamela is a singleplayer-only game, despite it seemingly having many elements in common with a wide variety of survival games out there. Anyway, here's the video:

While I don't know how Pamela will actually end up playing like, this trailer alone has more or less sold me on the concept. I just love the idea of creating your own shelters and defenses while only having a limited amount of resources to work with. If you have everything then it really isn't a survival game, and it most definitely isn't a horror game... but if you have extremely limited resources, then suddenly it becomes both! It also helps that Pamela seems to have taken quite a few pointers from System Shock, hence why the atmosphere looks so strangely enticing.

Whether its any good or not, however, we'll find out soon enough as Pamela is set to arrive on March 9th to Steam Early Access. If you would like to learn more you can head over to either Steam or the official website. And finally, here's a couple of images to set the mood:
