Ephemeral Rift Podcast #41 – Post-Apocalyptic Fiction
While this podcast isn’t usually about the post-apocalyptic genre, this 41st episode focuses entirely on our favorite topic. The host opens with a brief discussion of how he got into the topic while expanding into his favorite books, comics, movies, and more.

Lost Scavenger – Post Apocalyptic Survival RPG
I have a double feature from SplatterCat this week because, let’s face it, he is the king of post-apocalyptic indie game videos. This first one is Lost Scavenger, a game about surviving an apocalypse in an alternate universe ruled by THE MIST.

Desolation Tycoon – Sandbox Post Apocalyptic Merchant Sim
And here’s out second SplatterCat game video featuring Desolation Tycoon. This game looks to be more like a travel and trade game based in a “demon-haunted post-apocalypse.” One of my favorite features of this game is how the game world changes and evolves even when you’re not offline, not playing.

Asteroid Impact Survival Trailer – New Post-apocalyptic Crafting Game
Another post-apocalyptic game (sorry non-gamers) that looks to combine the best elements of a first-person shooter, a farming sim, a puzzle game, and a survival game. Can’t wait to get my hands on this one!

THOSE WHO LIVED – Post apocalyptic short film
This short film is about a man who is surviving the apocalypse alone… well, until he’s not. While there are a billion of these “one lone survivor against it all” short films on YouTube, this one is very well-shot and acted.


Horizon Forbidden West Cinematic Story Trailer (4K)
Horizon Zero Dawn’s upcoming sequel, Horizon Forbidden West, dropped a new trailer this week and I can’t say enough great things about it. This is one of our most highly anticipated games of this year and this trailer makes us more anxious to play!

Ruin Nation: The Roleplaying Game Trailer
Ruin Nation is an upcoming post-apocalyptic tabletop RPG from Toren Atkinson. You can check out a free preview of the game at his website, and he’s a regular in our Discord, so you can discuss the game there if you’re interested in learning more.

    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.
    He currently resides on top of a mountain in the middle of nowhere with his wife and four children.
