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.

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
An unassuming masterpiece of gaming…
What an achievement of a game you’ve made, Evan! You’ve packed in the perfect amount of gameplay progression for this wonderful little story, yet, somehow it all feels far more expansive than its brevity belies. The humor and understated gravity of the narrative is immaculately balanced. I was often reminded of the most memorable story beats of my favorite action/RPG classics. The art, music and sound design are also excellent and really feel like a labor of love.
Whatever you choose to pursue next, may you have the freedom and opportunity to do so with the same loving care and attention to detail as you have demonstrated with Afterplace. It will most certainly pay off and be eagerly anticipated again!
Actually the Best
I have downloaded hundreds of iOS games. Literally. Paid for most of them. I’ve been searching for the best of them.
This is it.
If you want to feel the way you did when you were exploring in BotW, but mobile: this is your game. If you want the creativity and cleverness of Fez, but without taking itself so seriously, this is your game. If you want the care and attention to detail of Stardew Valley, but without the grind, this is your game.
If every developer was Evan Kice, mobile gaming would be so much more than it is.
