* {{Game Breaking Bug}}s: If commentary on the LetsPlay thereof is to be believed, ''Aftershock'' is chock full of these. Known horror stories include saved games corrupted across an entire game profile, destruction of system files, and the uninstallation of anything running in the background, including Steam (currently the best way to get the After Blank games legally). ([[SomethingAwful The Goons]] seem to applaud ''Aftershock'' for getting rid of one user's [=iTunes=] processes, though.)

* DamageTyping: In Afterlight, this ranged from stun damage that's quickly recovered, to damage that may only be recovered once the unit returns to the hospital.

* OrganicTechnology: Inverts the curve set by ''X-COM'', as organic armor and weaponry becomes less common as the series progresses. Reticulans are so advanced that almost everything they build is a living organism, much like [[NightsDawn The Edenists]]. Of particular note is their ships: they start with a Reticulan "volunteer", inject them with something, and the ship grows from and around the new pilot, who is conscious. There's no one flying Reticulan UFOs because the UFOs ''are'' the pilots. Human scientists wisely decide not to copy the tech directly.

**Most weapons beyond the slug-throwing kind are this. Warp, Plasma, Laser, Electric, all energy weapons will meet enemies with resistances to that damage type, but bullets are effective against basically everything baring the Martians from Afterlight.

In May 2004, mankind achieved first contact. Or rather, aliens, named [[TheGreys Reticulans]], strolled over to Earth, ignored all attempts to make contact, and dumped a copious amounts of spores into the atmosphere as a means of hello. A week later, the spores, having rapidly multiplied, fell ''en masse'' to the surface, choking the life out of the planet. The few survivors of the devastation gathered together with one purpose in mind: [[ThisMeansWar to extend a proper thanks]] to the visitors.

In May 2004, humans achieved alien contact. Or rather, aliens, named [[TheGreys Reticulans]], came to Earth. Ignoring all attempts to make contact, the aliens unleashed a massive cloud of spores that completely covered the skies. One week later, the spores, having rapidly multiplied, fell ''en masse'' to the surface, choking the life out of the planet. The few survivors of the devastation gathered together with one purpose in mind: revenge.

* StarfishAliens: While most of the sentient aliens are some sort of humanoid biped, there are some weird variations. The Martians are plant-like, the Beastmen look like an unholy cross between a gorilla and a praying mantis, the [[spoiler: Starghosts]] aren't even shown, but appear as ghostly psionic projections, and the [[spoiler: Myrmecols]] are enormous [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] that at first sight look a lot like asteroids.
