Developer Piccolo Studio, best known for Arise: A Simple Story, announced After Us in December last year, and though it may not have been the most high profile announcement, it certainly turned a fair few heads with its promise of a surreal platforming adventure. Now, it’s been confirmed exactly when the game will be out, while new gameplay details have also been revealed.
After Us will launch on May 23, and it will take players to a surreal version of Earth set in a far-flung future where all life has been wiped out, with players playing as a small nymph brought into the world for the first time. In a PlayStation Blog post, Piccolo Studio’s general manager Alexis Corominas describes the game’s setting as “a strange, oneiric, but ultimately captivating world where everyday objects float around, some small, others massive, and where a coat of hazardous oil taints the land”.
On the gameplay front, After Us will employ a mix of combat, platforming, puzzles, and traversal challenges, all of which will be mixed up across the ten biomes that will form the game’s world. The game promises abstract art design, high-speed platforming and movement, a dynamic camera system, environmental storytelling, and more. Check out the gameplay trailer below for more details.
When it launches, After Us will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
