What is going to happen when, and if, humanity can no longer live on earth?
The answer to that question is main theme in this game.

The year is sometime not so far into the future.
Humanity is on the brink of destruction due to the enviroment being damaged by humanity. So what humanity does, is start building a huge spaceship, which will travel to a planet found far away which is likely to be able to harbor humanity.
And that is where the story starts.

The gameplay in After Man is mainly focused on exploration and puzzle solving.
Initially you are in control of a unnamed human after the spaceship carrying the hope of humanity landed on the new planet.

But there is already life on this planet and it may not be as peaceful as one would have hoped, as you will soon discover...

The idea for this game is something I got when I read two books by the Scottish geologist and author, Dougal Dixon. It's not required to read those books to understand anything in the game though. The books in question is: "After Man: A Zoology of the Future" and "Man After Man: An Anthropology of the Future". I highly recommend them if you're into sci-fi or are interested in how humanity could end up in the future.

Sounds good! It's a great book.
Hurray 100 downloads. I'll be celebrating with a bottle of champagne and crackers!
After Man was possibly my favorite book as a kid. You have a subscriber, sir.

It will be interesting to hear your thoughts. Good or bad, i'll be looking forward to it.

Edit:Removed post to not spoil.

There should be spoiler tags.
Weird. I did, and I returned to the home. No such luck for either aquatic or terrestrial. I'll keep trying.

Just re-tried it myself to make sure it works. Send me a message if you can't finish it.
Okay. I'll keep you posted. Can't do any more tonight, but I'll let you know tomorrow.
Okay, yeah. Ending achieved. I guess I must've missed something in the terrestrial environment.

Review incoming.

Great, i was a bit worried there for a moment.
Review should be incoming. There was some sort of glitch that caused it to submit as a blank document, but I was able to recover the whole thing and resubmit it. It should be pending in a day or so.

That's a long day :S
Anyway, i hope you'll try out my new game when it's done also.
It has bounced back twice due to a system glitch. I sent it to a mod, and then resubmitted it a third time. It is re-pending again.
Review bounced again. Currently working with mods to see if the problem is specifically this game, or just me.
Hm, I get the title screen and start the game, but after that all I see is a completely black screen. The only button that seems to do anything is the option to quit.

Weird, the download seems to have bugged the game just recently. I tried downloading the game a little while back and there was no problems then. Now it seems the game's starting position have been changed to a unused area for no reason though. I'll upload the file to RMN instead. Game should be up again as soon as download is approved. I'll take down the bugged upload in the meantime.
