META Publishing and Italian developer One O One Games announce Aftermath, a psychological thriller coming to PC, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. The Steam Listing doesn't show a release date, and revelations about the game are promised "throughout 2022," so this one is still off in the future. For the moment we have a cinematic Reveal Trailer that shows what seems to be the beforemath. Here's word:
Aftermath strives to throw players into a narrative driven world beyond the unimaginable. Designed to make you wonder: what would humanity do when faced with a situation like this?
The game follows Charlie Gray, a former European astronaut, as she struggles through the remnants of society, in search for her daughter. Driven by its gut wrenching narrative, Aftermath delves deeply into philosophy and psychology, drawing from the One O One team's previous experience from games like "The Suicide of Rachel Foster".
Players will find themselves in new territory when it comes to systems like crafting and combat, things that they will need to get familiar with fast if they are to survive against the threat occupying the world - and hunting them down. This otherworldly threat is born from the mind of Italian visual arts master, Alessandro Bavari, the creator behind works like Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant and Suspiria. Players will be forced to think outside of the box when it comes to survival.
With an original soundtrack featuring music from the likes of UNKLE and Planet Funk, every facet of the game's creation aims to draw players into the hellish, desolate world of Aftermath.
