After-Life 2 is the story of a player moving through a world which is slowly deconstructing around them. It is a struggle for survival not just literally, but also metaphysically. In a first-person shooter, you (the player) inhabit the body of a character in the story of the game. What happens when the character you’re playing knows they’re being played?
What is the role of the player as they inhabit a character in the story? Is it truly interactive if our actions are predetermined in the story, if the choices are shaped for you by the designer? Are we, as players, just characters in a game? After-Life 2 criticizes and parodies contemporary first-person shooter games in an effort to dynamically force the player to understand their relationship to the game world.
When After-Life 2 begins, you are awakened by a woman in an abandoned building. She does not know who you are, and neither do you. She does not know who she is, either. You get out of the building and journey through an evacuated city, one that is under attack by unknown forces. As you fight through these forces with your mysterious companion, the reality around you begins to distort and deconstruct.
