Aftermath is a psychological thriller where you follow Charlie's journey through an unfamiliar European city, searching for her daughter and fighting not only an unearthly presence, but also her own demons.

Charlie Gray was at the top of the world. A talented engineer and European astronaut, her career had brought her to where most people could only dream of; but following a reentry to earth gone wrong, and the traumatic events that ensued, Charlie returns a broken spirit. With her life spiralling into darker and darker places, Charlie now finds herself Isolated in a deserted, defragmented world. The only thing she knows is that she has to find the one thing that still matters: Sammy.

In Aftermath, players follow Charlie's journey through an unfamiliar European city, searching for her daughter and fighting not only an unearthly presence, but also her own demons.

Analyze your surroundings and utilize the urban resources at your disposal. Mundane, everyday items can become an invaluable tool in your fight against the enigmatic beings that now occupy the city. Study alien weaknesses and find the best approach to take down those that might want to use you as an offering.

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”.


“For us at One O One, this is a major goal. To have the chance to develop such an ambitious, innovative title in Italy and we feel lucky to have META Publishing as a partner. META believed in our game, which aims to tell a mature story through survival mechanics, one that’s far away from the standard wilderness settings that these games feature normally. We are excited to let people get in touch with the uncanny world we’re creating and the characters who inhabit it!” says David Gallo, CEO at One O One Games.

“We’re extremely excited to be sharing this news with the world today,” says META Publishing CEO Ilya Salamatov. “The team at One O One have created an incredibly layered character in Charlie, the protagonist of the game. She was at the top of the world before the event and even though the odds are stacked against her, she still finds the strength to overcome everything and focus on finding her daughter. The story and experience in Aftermath is truly something unique that we hope people will be talking about for years to come. The combination of visual style, story, soundtrack and gameplay creates a completely unique game that will appeal to a vast amount of gamers across the globe”.

“This is only the beginning of us exploring Aftermath,” teases META Publishing Chief Marketing Officer, Chris Collins. “Over the coming months until launch, we’ll be highlighting a huge amount of topics and content, to help players understand more of what’s in store. The trailer released today is layered in moments that reflect elements of the game that we’ve not even started to talk about. You won’t catch them all the first time around. Keep an eye out for more stories, videos, blog posts and articles in 2022, where we’ll explore “the philosophy of the Aftermath” and many of the topics the game covers. We can’t wait to hear what you think!”

Key Features:

  • A POWERFUL HUMAN STORY: What form does humanity take when faced with unimaginable events? Do we unite and become stronger, or do we fall apart? Does our past still shape us, or do we find strength in focusing on what could be? AFTERMATH delves deeply into philosophical, psychological and other questions that might get asked if we find ourselves in an impossible situation.
  • UNIQUE VISUAL DESIGN: With stunning aesthetics created by the brilliant mind of enigmatic Italian visual arts master Alessandro Bavari, the artist behind the design of Ridley’s Scott Alien: Covenant and Suspiria.
  • LIFE AND DEATH ARE A MYSTERY: Charlie is locked in a waking nightmare. What is happening and why is a core mystery that plagues Charlie’s every moment. If death isn’t the end, then what is?
  • AN ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK: AFTERMATH features a rich and varied soundtrack, featuring original work from artists such as UNKLE, Planet Funk and many more.
  • FACE YOUR FOE: Charlie is being hunted by an unseen adversary. Unfold the mystery of this seemingly invincible “hunter” and use every facet of your arsenal to outwit them and survive. But what other forces could be lurking in the remains of the city and beyond? What fate has fallen humanity?
  • STAY HEALTHY, STAY READY: Eating the right food, maintaining mental health and physical stamina keeps you one step ahead of your enemy, helping you stay alert and ready to outwit your opponents.
  • REALISTIC CRAFTING: AFTERMATH uses Charlie’s engineering mind and scientific approach to create a new take on crafting, rather than a simple system. Observe and take notes of your surroundings to invent a blueprint and then find and combine the necessary parts to adapt and overcome.
  • A FAMILIAR SETTING: Explore a detailed recreation of a city steeped in history, defragmented by the terrifying power of an ancient alien artifact, looming ominously above.
