A sequel, ''Afterfall: Reconquest'', was released on UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} under the Early Access program in 2014. ''Reconquest'' is more action-oriented than ''Insanity'', and is planned to be released in an episodic format.

In early 2015, it was discovered that developer Nicolas Games had illegally used Unreal Engine assets to create ''Insanity''. The resultant backlash, which included a disastrous lawsuit, ultimately led to Nicolas Games declaring bankruptcy and both ''Insanity'' and ''Reconquest'' being pulled from distributors due to its illegal engine use.

Any further episodes of ''Reconquest'' are extremely unlikely to ever be released.

Added DiffLines:

* InformedAttribute: Albert's said to be a smart and a good therapist, but constantly says that the ''mutated, murderous humans'' menacing him are just people suffering "confinement syndrome", and he's [[JerkAss obnoxiously confrontational]].


Added DiffLines:

* JerkAss: Albert Tokaj himself, having a sense of smug superiority that never quite leaves. It's to the point that somebody who is sure they're hearing children's voices in the tunnel won't admit it because it'd land him in therapy with Tokaj.

Added DiffLines:

* MeleeATrois: Mutants and hostile humans will fight each other as well as the player, although there are only a few places in the game where the two can be found in the same area.

Added DiffLines:

* BossInMooksClothing: The welder you fight shortly after escaping from the second sublevel is just a normal dude, but for some reason takes an insane amount of damage to kill, way more than any other non-boss enemy in the game. He's a unique NPC (you won't encounter another at any point in the game), and it's unclear if he's affected by the HatePlague, or if he's completely sane and only attacking you because you're a disheveled stranger running at him with a fire axe.

Added DiffLines:

* RegeneratingHealth: It's slow enough that it won't help in combat, but it does get you back to full health between major fights. It seems the game was originally going to use a traditional survival horror health management system (pain pills are mentioned in one of the tutorial messages), but ultimately it wasn't implemented.

* [[spoiler:BolivianArmyEnding]]: The final cinematic ends with [[spoiler:Albert held in a quarantine room in the Fist, with Colonel Potocki and the Fist security detail watching the recordings of the various murders Albert committed. It's pretty clear that things don't look good for him]].

* DrivenToSuicide: Marcin after discovering the identity of the saboteur... or so it seems.
* EverybodysDeadDave: [[spoiler: The contamination quickly spreads to the rest of the vault; almost everyone is turned into an insane maniac except Albert, Karolina, and the Colonel and some of his men. The Colonel outright blames Albert for wiping out most of what's left of the human race. On the plus side, it turns out there is at least one other vault out there, "Fist", and the surface is also occupied by survivors as well (albeit not particularly hospitable ones).]]
