Major update for promising, early-access, horror survival title, P.A.M.E.L.A, allows players to draw resource from the failing city.
NVYVE Studios have released a major update for their title, adding in tutorials, a new NPC, new story elements, and new armor items. Most importantly, however, they’ve added in the ability to refine elements of the environment into resources which can be used for crafting – likely massively changing the pace of the game.
P.A.M.E.L.A, which takes place in a fallen, utopian city, sees players exploring the city, reactivating new areas, and restoring power, as they try to survive the deranged remains of the citizens. It’s all very Bioshock/System-Shock, although the AI in this game is friendly, and out to assist you as best it can.
There’s a variety of abilities at player’s disposal as they explore. Shortly after the game starts the player can start assembling a portable base, complete with power-supply, shield, and turrets. This base can be set up anywhere with the space, and gives you a safe place to fix yourself up, or to build new ammo/healing-tools, and more.
If you’re interested in reading more about the game, we did a preview of the launch build earlier in the year, which you can find here.
You can find the full patch notes here, alternately, we’ve compiled some of the bigger changes below:
“New ability, crafting: able to create buildables through collected elements from the world or by drops.
New IVG ability, Harvest: Most scenery objects in the world can be disassembled into crafting elements by using energy.
Added new tutorial system, utilizing videos to better explain complex concepts.
New NPC, Sec-RT, to add flavor and life to Eden.
Added an NPC Resolve system, when you hit an NPC their toughness will temporarily increase, making them much harder to stagger.

New Items: Bandages, Nanoflex Armor, plus those to facilitate crafting.
Two new buildables that, when placed, give the ability to craft more complex items.
