Afterlife review

Computer Gaming World (1996): "In the end (grin), if you like this sort of simulation in general, you will probably have a great time in the afterlife. If SIMCITY put you to sleep, the humor of AFTERLIFE might keep you awake for a little while. And when you're not busy laughing, you'll have a great time playing Demiurge and doling out rewards and punishments in the afterlife."

    I can't believe this game never got a spiritual successor (pun not intended, but should have been). It was a fun concept, the voice acting was great, it just might have been trying to do a little bit more than a Pentium 1 could reasonably handle. Great Death Star cameo if you got too greedy, though.
