Free online post apocalypse stories that will get you through the fallout


The end of civilization as we know it may occur at any given moment due to a catastrophe such as:
  1. nuclear warfare
  2. pandemic
  3. celestial body impact
  4. resource depletion
  5. global warming
  6. other disasters.

Post apocalypse relates to what happens after such a disaster. The time frame may be:

  1. immediately after,
    focusing on the efforts or psychology of survivors (watch "The Road").

  2. considerably later,
    often including the premise that the existence of pre-apocalypse civilization has been either forgotten or mythologized, the protagonist of the story (or movie) requiring a decent Wasteland Survival Guide in order to remain alive.

A Post Apocalypse Story: Fallout

Post apocalypse stories often take place in a non-technological future world or a setting where only scattered elements of technology exist (we highly recommend you play Fallout 2, a post nuclear role-playing game). By far the best RPG you will ever play, Fallout 2 is a classic RPG that you will not only love, but you will become addicted to. Through its post apocalypse story, Fallout will prove to you how magnificent role playing games can be. Watch the intro:

The Threat of Nuclear Warfare

Despite the end of the *Cold War*, the threat of nuclear war is still real. A number of states or terrorist groups possess nuclear devices and can deploy them at anytime. No one can say we're safe as the threat is still as menacing today as it was in the 60s.

The threat of nuclear war is a frightening thing to contemplate. There are some who argue that nuclear weapons have prevented many wars, the price of conflict between major powers being too high. Others argue that it is only a matter of time before a nuclear warfare occurs (remember North Korea's nuclear threat last year in 2010?)

Post Apocalypse Survival Guide

This survival guide to the post apocalypse is an instructional 8 minutes film intended to help the Australian population to *accommodate* after a nuclear attack. Apparently produced by the Australian Board of Civil Defence during the 80s, this guide uses large quantities of dark humor and minimalist animation. Viewer discretion is advised!

The film guides us through the trials that will await you in a post apocalypse world: from post apocalypse fashion and (very) original uses for human skulls, to becoming a local warlord and avoiding drinking contaminated water or the nearby radioactive mutants.

  Ducked and Covered or How to Survive the Apocalypse.

As seen in most disasters, the government may not be there for you, and/or cannot accommodate/provide for everyone. Therefore, this post apocalypse survival guide is for all dwellers of the wastelands that don't need help from their government. With its dry methodical narration, Ducked and Covered is an inspired parody to the atomic age paranoia, as well as a reminder of what STILL COULD HAPPEN...


Post Apocalypse Stories

The Post Apocalypse as a genre gained in popularity after the Second World War, when the possibility of global annihilation by nuclear weapons was a terrifying reality. However, recognizable post apocalypse stories existed since 1826, when Mary Shelley (the author of famous "Frankenstein") published her novel "The Last Man" in which the protagonist is living in a future world emptied of humanity by plague.
