Afterlife is a god game released by LucasArts in July 1996 that places the player in the role of a semi-omnipotent being known as a Demiurge, with the job of creating a functional Heaven & Hell to reward or punish the citizens of the local planet. The player does not assign citizens lớn their various punishments và rewards since the game does this automatically. Instead, the player creates the infrastructure (roads, zones for the various sins/virtues, reincarnation centers) that allows the afterlife khổng lồ function properly. Players are accountable for the job that they vì because of their bosses, The Powers That Be, check in from time to lớn time. The player also has the assistance of two advisors—Aria Goodhalo, an angel, and Jasper Wormsworth, a detháng. Aria và Jasper provide warnings when things are going wrong with the afterlife, and offer tips on how to fix the problems.

The game is very satirical, with various references to pop culture (such as a passing mention of a "San Quentin Scarearantino" or sending a Death Star khổng lồ destroy buildings if the player cheats too much).

game Play

The primary goal of the game is khổng lồ provide divine and infernal services for the inhabitants of the afterlife. This afterlife caters khổng lồ one particular planet, known simply as the Planet. The creatures living on the Planet are called EMBOs, or Ethically Mature Biological Organisms. When an EMBO dies, its soul travels lớn the afterlife where it attempts khổng lồ find an appropriate "fate structure". Fate structures are places where souls are rewarded or punished, as appropriate, for the virtues or sins that they practiced while they were alive sầu.

While the seven sins are based on the seven deadly sins, only two of the seven virtues correspond to lớn the seven heavenly virtues.

Alternatively, players can choose to lớn lay down generic zones for fate structures, that can house all souls of all types easily. However, these structures don"t tư vấn as much population or are as effective as the single virtues/sins, and are more of a short-term solution for lost souls who can"t find a reward/punishment.

The paths that souls take through the afterlife depkết thúc largely on the tenets of the souls" belief systems. Depending on these tenets, a soul may visit a single fate structure or it may be rewarded/punished for multiple sins or virtues. Tenets also determine whether a soul will visit only Heaven, only Hell, or both, as well as whether that soul will reincarnate after it has received its final reward or punishment.

The player can view of the current distribution of sins & virtues on the Planet, as well as the percentages of EMBOs who believe sầu in each of the tenets. The player may spend a considerable amount of money lớn influence an important EMBO on the Planet. This influence can cause the EMBO khổng lồ adopt one or more of the sins or virtues, as well as persuade him or her to lớn believe sầu in the tenet or tenets selected. This EMBO will then spread their newfound iđơn hàng, which will cause a shift in the beliefs and sins/virtues in the surrounding area.

At the start of the game, the EMBOs on the planet will be at the lowest cấp độ of giải pháp công nghệ, which is fire.

As the game progresses, new technologies are discovered, ranging from pottery to lớn medicine lớn aviation. New technologies help the EMBOs to lớn become more widespread on the planet, which means a larger population for the afterlife when they die. The development of new technologies can be assisted by wielding influence on an EMBO artist or inventor in the same way that EMBOs are persuaded to new tenets or sins và virtues.

Most buildings in the afterlife produce Vibes, which are a measure of how buildings affect one another. Buildings can either produce "good vibes" or "bad vibes". Fate structures need to lớn be under the appropriate type of vibe (good in Heaven, bad in Hell) in order lớn evolve sầu inkhổng lồ larger và more efficient structures.

As Demiurge, the player receives a yearly paycheque from The Powers That Be. The amount received is based on a number of factors, such as the number of souls that passed through the gates of the afterlife in that year.

Your afterlife is staffed by angels (in Heaven) & demons (in Hell). At first, all workers are imported và must commute from other afterlives, which quickly becomes expensive sầu. The costs can be lowered by building Topias to lớn house workers in the player"s afterlife, making the commute unnecessary. Employment costs can be further reduced by building training centers, which train processed souls to lớn become angels and demons.

Balance can be done in two ways. The first, the Micromanager, allows the player khổng lồ browse a specific structure and adjust its balance cấp độ for free unless the player decides to lớn lock the structure, in which case a maintenance fee is charged yearly. The balance cấp độ is measured in a grayscale bar, with the two extremes dedicating to lớn research (permanent souls) or production (temporary souls). The Macromanager, on the other h&, allows the player khổng lồ balance manually or automatically all fate structures of a specific virtue/sin simultaneously.

"Bad Things", which are akin khổng lồ natural disasters, occur at random. Each one can be repelled by one of the Special Buildings that are granted as rewards for reaching population milestones. Bad Things can be disabled via an in-game menu. However, doing so decreases the player"s soul rate by half.

Like most god games, Afterlife is open-ended & does not have sầu set conditions for winning. There are, however, a few definite ways of losing the game. These include having an excessive number of unemployed workers (leading to an all-out war between Heaven và Hell), staying too deep in debt for too long, & the Planet"s population being wiped out by either nuclear warfare or an asteroid event.
