Surviving the Aftermath is a survival simulation video game developed by Iceflake Studios and published by Paradox Interactive.


Build a thriving colony and restore civilization to a devastated world in Paradox’s second installment in the Surviving series. Take up arms, fortify your gates, and fight against the hazards of the apocalypse—bandits, natural disasters, disease—all while making the tough choices needed to see your colony through to survival. Send Specialists beyond the colony’s gates to gather resources, meet rival colonies, build outposts, and more, securing the colony’s future. Equip your Specialists with armor and weapons to defend the colony from attacking bandits and rampaging wildlife.
