TNW - Achievements Update

This has been a long time coming, but here we are -- Steam Achievements have arrived in The Next World!

24 shiny new trophies are waiting to be collected by exploring everything the game has to offer. They can be unlocked in both the vanilla game as well as Planetary Exploration. Old saved games will still work, though they won't be able to unlock all the achievements.

Speaking of Planetary Exploration, we will be putting out another update in the future to add a slew of Achievements unique to the expansion! Stay tuned to find out when that's coming.

In the meantime... Let the collecting begin!

About This Game


Welcome to The Next World - a strategic visual novel by Illuminated Games, telling the story of a crashed colony ship and its ragged group of survivors, trying to make a new life on the wrong planet.

TNW is a visual novel/strategy hybrid inspired by The Banner Saga, King of Dragon Pass and Oregon Trail, with an emphasis on planning and decision-making over combat. Keep as many colonists alive as possible by making the tough decisions which will determine how your adventure unfolds. Build colony structures, salvage wreckage, resolve problems with multiple branching outcomes, and manage your colony's dwindling supplies; all while playing through an intense story of political intrigue, sabotage, desperation and survival, by writer Ryan A. Span (FRONTIERS, Mount&Blade, Euclidean).


  • Robust strategy system - manage your colony on a hostile world & keep your people alive
  • Fully hand-drawn art in retro-industrial sci-fi style
  • Two different protagonists to choose from, each with their own quirks and methods
  • Colourful and memorable cast of NPCs
  • Dozens of events to help you or challenge you
  • Hundreds of decisions to make, each with its own consequences
