Explore a world of secrets.
Designed for iPad
An open world adventure game filled with silly characters and terrible secrets.
Afterplace is an adventurous indie game for mobile devices. It's a huge open world, full of hidden secrets, treasures, and creatures. You'll run around the woods, fight monsters, and talk to ostensibly shady characters! All from your pocket! Be warned though - you never know what the forest might be hiding, and not all trails are paved. Labyrinths and dungeons are tucked away in the most concealed nooks. There are no waypoints in Afterplace. You'll have to forge your own path.
Afterplace has been designed from the ground up to be a fast, fluid, beautiful experience for mobile. There are no virtual buttons. You can move and attack by touching anywhere. You can tap objects directly to interact or attack, or use two thumbs like a traditional controller. The game will adapt dynamically to your play style. Pick up and set down the game at your own pace, it will always save your progress. Afterplace is made to feel like a full-fledged indie adventure game that fits in your pocket.

Ratings and Reviews
From indie developer Evan Kice, Afterplace is an unforgettable RPG lovingly crafted for mobile, forgoing virtual buttons in favor of swipes and taps to control its precise combat. The game is also just a delight to explore, brimming with surprises ranging from sarcastic vending machines to nightmarish bosses. Even after two playthroughs, we’re still finding new paths, new choices, and unexpected encounters that make us laugh.
Fantastic game - Would love to see more!
Just beat this game after buying it last week, and was so pleasantly surprised. The visuals are incredible, the controls are easy enough, and the story and dialogue was next level. I’d even say exceptional.
This game was made by one individual, so, understandably, there were a few things that left me with an itch that had not been scratched, but was teased at. For instance, the combat & weapon system. In an ideal world you would have been able to buy a variety of weapons from the weapon store that eventually appears, with different specs (dagger= speed but lacks damage, great sword=damage, lacks speed, etc). And having the option for ranged weapons would have added a fun element as well, I believe.
I think any critiques I could have really are a compliment: this game is so good that it leaves you wanting MORE. I wish the mushroom forest was a whole world, I wish treasure chests gave more than just coins, I wish you gained exp from fights to level up and adjust stats. But none of these things were the point of Afterlife. In the end, the point was to be engrossed in a beautiful world, and to traverse a rich story about loss and how to move forward in it. For that reason this game deserves a solid 5/5. Great work.
I am in love with this game
Evan if you’re reading this, thank you so much for making this game. I loved every bit of it. It really gave me the feeling that everything I did was discovering a secret. Many times I’d think, how is it possible that i NEEDED to do this to advance? It feels like I found a secret! My journey felt like my own, and was so fun and so cool.
My only complaint about this game would be that by the end, I felt like there were some plot points that I didn’t fully understand. Mainly, the time period between a long time ago, and when the game starts, from the main character’s perspective. I feel like maybe I could figure it out if I replayed and explored some more? But I hope this game gets really popular and some YouTuber just explains it to me 😂
I loved this game
