Recently popping up on my radar is AfterFall: InSanity, a Dead Space-esque PC-exclusive survival-horror title from Polish developer Intoxicate Interactive. After checking out a few trailers, with a lengthy one to be found here, I have to say that I’m excited for the fire ax to become my new zombie-slaying weapon of choice.
Taking place in 2033, 20 years after a nuclear World War III, AfterFall is both post-apocalyptic and a zombie game. Yeah, I know — another zombie game. But what’s intriguing about AfterFall is its apparent emphasis on psychological horror, as well as straight monster horror. It appears to be a pretty creepy game that fans of Resident Evil and Dead Space can get into. Pre-orders for AfterFall: InSanity start next week, and the full game is due on out for Windows PC on Nov. 25. Hit afterfall-universe.com for more details.
Here’s an official description of what’s going on:
It is 2032 – 20 years after the end of World War III. To survive the nuclear holocaust, humankind fled from the contaminated surface to find safety in vast bunkers, cities created deep underground. Decaying shelters and hideaways set the stage in mankind’s struggle for survival where they battle horrible mutants, bloodthirsty mercenaries and other threats.
In Afterfall: InSanity you won’t only face the aftermath of the nuclear fallout, but also the dark shadows of the past in the role of the mysterious psychologist Albert. As Albert, the player will be part of a team of medical scientists in charge of monitoring the fugitives’ mental stability. If Albert does not confront his greatest weaknesses and deepest fears, he will not survive the claustrophobic depths of the underground from which there is no escape and where the darkness hides more secrets than simply the growing madness of its inhabitants. Defy everything that’s in your way to solve the horrible secrets that exists in the dark.
