The World After Critic Reviews

The World After looks at the pandemic lifestyle through the lens of a point-and-click game. With science fiction elements and an FMV style, the game works hard to set its self apart. But will the impact of this game last, or will it end along with the pandemic?

The World After is a product of a very interesting time in video game history, set and produced during a pandemic. Combining sci-fi trappings with the French countryside in a hybrid of FMV and point-and-click adventure gives this game an entirely unique thematic feel. There’s questionable narrative decisions leading to an anti-climactic story arc but for fans of FMV games, The World After will fill an evening or two.
