Surviving The Aftermath

Paradox Interactive, developer and publisher of games such as the Europa Universalis series, has now acquired Iceflake Studios from Tampere, Finland.

Iceflake Studios are the developers of Surviving The Aftermath, a survival management-strategy game that is coming soon to Early Access on both PC and Xbox. Ideally, players will want to build a "disaster proof colony", and to do that they will have to gather resources, meet rival colonies, and fight off bandits that seek to take everything you have.

“When we started our discussion with Paradox, we knew that we had a very like-minded approach. Our collaboration with Surviving the Aftermath has been excellent and showed how similar our approach to development is. So when Paradox suggested that we could become part of the family, we were thrilled,” said Lasse Liljedahl, Co-Founder and Studio Manager at Iceflake. “It did not hurt that we were fans of Paradox games ourselves, to begin with! This new step helps us to focus on our dream of becoming one of the best developers in the game genres we love so much.”

“The collaborative efforts we’ve shared thus far with Iceflake have given us all the confidence that this is a natural fit,” said Charlotta Nilsson, COO at Paradox Interactive. “Surviving the Aftermath fits the Paradox portfolio perfectly, and Iceflake has shown themselves to be the kind of partner who can help us create more titles in our core genres. Turning this relationship into a long-term partnership is an easy decision, and we’re eager to share more great games with our audience in the years to come.”

There are approximately six biomes in the game, with ensuring that there are six different conditions that the player must understand in order for his colony to survive. However, if you don't want to play the game as hardcore as you want, there will be mods that will undoubtedly lessen the load.
