After Us is an adventure game where you explore a surreal world as Gaia, who must salvage the souls of extinct animals. You play by traversing the world, dealing with hazards and reviving creatures to reveal their fate: the last whale harpooned, the final eagle caged, the last deer hunted down. It stands out for the emotive narrative and unusual way to consider extinction not only of wildlife but of humanity.

The last animals have died and it's down to you to rescue each of their souls to bring them back to Mother’s Ark. You glide, jump, and dash through the world to evade deadly traps and chasms. As you go you use your power to clear the oil that consumes the world, face hungry Devourers, and break souls free.

As you progress you discover a huge world filled with surreal imagery of a long-lost human past. The forests have died and the cities have crumbled. You must find a way through these spaces, the dry seas and polluted skies to find the animals you can save. Along the way you spread life and beauty on her path.

The result is a story of contrasts. It's a somber look at a world decimated by human impact. The low view of humanity may not be to everyone's taste, but before the game is done we discover that our part in the story is not only as agents of extinction, but also of progress, love, and hope.
