We don't know how "bitching" translates between languages, but Mettra has amended his statements in an email to IncGamers, saying he would "love" to see a PC version and Ubisoft is "working to see the feasibility of it, which is not necessarily simple." Mettra continued, "I gave some examples to illustrate the problematic [sic], but obviously it is not in my hands and not my part to talk about this.
"Honestly, which game maker would not love his game to be playable on as many platforms and by as many people as possible?"
This retraction may have held more weight if it weren't so easy for us to imagine large men in tailored Ubisoft suits standing behind Mettra as he wrote the email. For now it appears I Am Alive is still up for a PC release, but given Ubisoft's tense relationship with potential pirates, we're not holding our breath.
