DIY Hydro Power Generator! Construction + Field Trip
The post-apocalyptic inventor is always good for a good scrap scavenging trip and a lesson in off-grid living. In this video, he creates a hydro power generator while explaining the history of the historic invention. Very educational stuff!

The Ruined World of ‘Barren’
“Barren, a post-apocalyptic worldbuilding project by Keegan Francis, imagines an alternate history where civilization ended in nuclear conflict, and mutated animal life rapidly evolves to rule over the irradiated wastes left behind.” This video dives deep into Keegan Francis’ project and explains the inspiration behind it.

Another Broken Survival Game – Old Future: Post-Apocalyptic Times
I always appreciate when a YouTuber gives an honest opinion on a game. In this video, RODE85 takes a look at Old Future: Post-Apocalyptic Times and explains why it doesn’t seem quite ready for primetime. I guess I’ll let it sit on my Steam wishlist a bit longer.

Broken Roads – Announce Trailer | PS5 & PS4 Games
I’ve been drooling over Broken Roads for a very long time and I’m always excited to see any tidbit of an update for it. This trailer is called an “announce trailer” but I feel like we’ve seen this before. The developer recently announced a new publisher, so this may just be a reminder that the game is in development. Either way, I can’t wait for it!

Wasteland Weekend – The Party At The End Of The World! (official)
Wasteland Weekend 2022 is a month away and we have TWO videos to get you hyped up for it. This first one is an official trailer that shows off what this Mojave Desert event is all about.

American Rust: Episode 2 ~ Wasteland Edition
This second Wasteland Weekend video is from Rat Rod Magazine, where the approach is more about the comparisons between rat rod culture and wastelander culture. Tons and tons of great clips in this one, especially if you’re into the car side of things.

Matt Chat 492: Interview with Encased Developer Slava
Encased is one of my favorite post-apocalyptic RPGs and I was excited to see an interview with one of the developers in this video. If you’re a fan of Encased (or you want to be!), you’ll want to check this one out.

THE LAST OF US First Look Trailer (2022)
Finally! This is our first real footage of Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey as Joel and Ellie from the upcoming The Last of Us series on HBO. The teaser is short, but effective enough to raise the hype level for me.

    Shawn has been infatuated with the post-apocalyptic genre since he wore out his horribly American-dubbed VHS of the original Mad Max as a child. Shawn is the former Editor-in-Chief at, creator of the Aftermath post-apocalyptic immersion event, and author of "AI For All," a guide to navigating this strange new world of artificial intelligence.
