'The Last Stand: Aftermath' Launches Kickstarter Campaign - Screens & Trailer

The Last Stand: Aftermath is a singleplayer rogue-lite action adventure where you take control of a survivor thrust into a cataclysmic zombie apocalypse.

The Last Stand: Aftermath aims to break completely new ground , offering a fresh roguelite take on the series, whilst retaining the atmosphere that made the original so striking.

Choose a survivor to set forth and explore the ruins of civilization, finding fuel to travel to new locations and gathering supplies to craft weapons and more. You'll need to stay on your toes, since hordes of zombies still roam the streets, and you're no superhuman.

In a unique twist, however, the survivor has been infected and must strike out to make the most of their final days by gathering supplies for those who will come after them, and hunting for the truth behind the renewed danger of the zombie virus, before they themselves succumb. But when one survivor dies, the player will immediately take control of another, who will benefit from the progress made by their predecessors.

The Last Stand: Aftermath looks to pose the question: how much can you give before you are gone forever?

You're going to die, but not until you're good and ready.

Con Artist Games have launched a Kickstarter campaign, looking to raise $50,00, which lets backers support the team as they take on the last leg of development.

Fans will be offered a plethora of ways to support the game with Con Artist Games planning to offer an exclusive beta of The Last Stand: Aftermath directly after the end of the Kickstarter campaign in mid-October.

"Aftermath is a culmination of years of ideas mixed with the series' long history, so hitting all of those notes has been an exciting challenge" said Chris Condon, game director at Con Artist Games. "It is important to us to deliver the best possible version of Aftermath to fans of the series, so Kickstarter makes a lot of sense to help us get to the finish line."

Key Features:

  • Sneak and fight your way through a dangerous post-apocalyptic wasteland
  • Dead Man Walking: Humans are fragile, it's rare one survives long out amongst the hordes alone. Luckily, this infection makes you something else, something more. As your humanity ebbs and the affliction takes hold, you'll discover new limits and abilities you never knew were buried deep within your DNA. Utilize your newfound skills to scavenge for weapons and medicine, or the materials you can use to make them.
  • Explore and Craft: Explore a constantly shifting cityscape to find materials to craft new tools, weapons, and remedies. If you're lucky you'll find medicine, letting you roam for longer.
  • Fight with the Infection: As the infection mutates your body, discover new and unexpected abilities that will let you decimate the undead hordes before they overwhelm you.
  • Roguelike Loop: Death is assured, but the story doesn't end there. Venture out as a newly infected survivor again, and again, and again as everyone makes their Last Stand.
  • The Beginning of The End: With the promise of death ahead of you, you're determined to make your last stand one for the record books: securing more supplies, and destroying more undead than anyone before.
  • A tense and moody, atmospheric zombie experience

The Last Stand: Aftermath is in development for PC (Steam), scheduled for 2021.
