There are a lot of ways for people to take offense as they experience Milo and Lola's journey through Hell. Afterparty assumes a mature audience capable of seeing the humor in its heroes' unlikely afterlife adventure, an audience not put off by (blissfully blurred out) scenes of sexual torture, demons sitting and joking around a pot of human stew, and drinking a tremendous amount of horrific looking alcoholic beverages. Some players may also balk at what Lola and Milo need to do -- such as cooperating with demons, and purposely tanking a seemingly innocent man's defense during a Hell trial -- in order to escape. This game will, if nothing else, make players think about their own morality, and what they would and wouldn't be willing to do in order to escape perdition.

There's actually a surprising amount of substance lurking beneath the surface of this outwardly outrageous fantasy. Our heroes freely discuss contentious topics including religion and global warming, go on a rollercoaster ride of emotions talking about their friendship, and even delve into family matters from the past that have helped shape who they are. Things never get too serious, but there's more food for thought here than one might think. There's more to Afterparty than meets the eye, but to get to it, you'll need a stomach for off-color humor.
