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
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
that shows what seems to be the beforemath. Here's
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.
