Surviving the Aftermath shouldn't have appeared on Steam until it's done. And that at the end of 2020. Now nothing will come of it. Due to the continuing restrictions in the wake of the Corona crisis, the building game is postponed to 2021. The developers still want to keep their promise. That's why Surviving the Aftermath still appears on Steam, but still as an Early Access version.
When does it appear on Steam?
On October 22, 2020 then it’s time. On this day, the Epic-exclusive deal ends and you can access the Steam store. The official product page for Surviving the Aftermath is already available.
According to the developer of Haemimont Games, the thing with early access is not such a bad thing, because this way the players on Steam can still express their opinions and contribute to the development. You can get a first impression of Surviving the Aftermath in our screenshot gallery:

What is Surviving the Aftermath about?
Surviving the Aftermath is basically a classic building game. But here you neither colonize a new country nor a foreign planet. In Surviving the Aftermath you build a post-apocalyptic settlement. But since the wasteland is teeming with dangers, you have a great responsibility. After all, you should guarantee the survival of your settlers. For this you have to:
- Collect resources: You need all kinds of stuff to survive. So explore the surrounding area and tackle as much useful stuff as you can find. From this you then build new buildings, of which there are currently 61 pieces.
- Know your enemies: Surviving the Aftermath maps are generated automatically. Each always has six different biomes in which different dangers occur. So your enemies are not just nefarious predators, unfavorable competitors or wild animals. Natural disasters are also a problem for your colony.
- Become a leader: Your colonists rely on you. After all, they are the specialists you send into the world to fight, plunder or do research. You also have to make decisions over and over again, the consequences of which can affect the whole colony, and how the leaders of other colonies deal with you.
