Surviving the Aftermath is the post-apocalyptic management game that prepares you for the end of everything

Climate change? Nukes? Planet X, quantum vacuum collapse, the grey goo hypothesis? Or, maybe, one of the religions proving that, actually, it was the real religion the entire time? Whatever the end, it’s inevitable. How we go on without Netflix and junk food is the real problem – but with educational games like Surviving the Aftermath, humanity can be ready to deal with those kinds of contingencies.

Published by Paradox Interactive as a sort of sequel to Surviving Mars (although developer Iceflake Studios is different), this game has you establish and supervise a colony amid the scorched dregs of civilisation, and learn about the importance of recycling.

It’s out now in early access on PC via the Epic Games Store and Xbox One.
