Afterfall: Insanity gets first gameplay clip

Afterfall: Insanity was announced back in April by The Games Company for early 2011, but we didn’t hear much from it afterwards. Today, the game’s under a new publisher — Just A Game — and is still scheduled for an Q1 2011 release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Today is also the day we get a first glimpse at the game in motion.

The game takes place in 2032 — 20 years after World War III — where a contaminated Earth surface led humankind to flee to bunkers, mines and cities underground to survive. As Adam, a psychologist, players are tasked with monitoring the mental health of fugitives.

Afterfall: Insanity is a third-person survival-horror shooter that pits players against mutants and war victims in once-beautiful European cities to “discover a horrible truth.” To do so, Adam must face his “greatest weaknesses” and “deepest fears” to survive the “claustrophobic depths” of the underground.

The gameplay clip reminds me a bit of Dead Space — on a post-apocalyptic Earth; looks like it has potential. The killing animations need a lot of work, though. Watch when somebody gets axed or shot to see what I mean.

Check out the clip below.
