Trophy Guide

After Us Trophy Guide and Road Map for PlayStation 5

Welcome to our After Us Trophy Guide. After Us is a beautiful yet eerie open-world platforming game in which you follow the story of a young being tasked with saving the spirits of earth’s animals. Humanity, the earth, and all life on it has long-since been wiped out thanks to the various capitalistic obsessions we collected throughout our tenure on the planet.

All is not lost, however, as the spirits of the earth’s many species (108 of them, at least) can be saved by you. Saved from fading into obscurity for all of existence. Saved from the successes of man.

The trophy journey is somewhat slow, the game’s pacing can be pretty sluggish at times, especially when you’re rooting around for collectibles, but I found it to be a very enjoyable experience overall. Though there are almost 200 collectibles to find and secure, they’re actually pretty easy to find for the most part, and you’re fully equipped with in-game tools to help you find them; mitigating the requirement for any sort of collectible guide.

Phase One | Complete the Story while looking for Spirits and Memories

During the first phase of our After Us Trophy Guide, your key objective will simply be to find and save the 8 main Animal Spirits tied to the story. Upon saving them all, you will complete the main story, leaving you to clean up whatever trophies are left in subsequent phases.

You, of course, can make your trophy journey much easier by focusing on Spirit Collectibles and Memories as you play. You can hold to “sing” as you play. When you do so, small butterflies will appear around the protagonist. If these butterflies are white, there is no collectible nearby. If they are blue, they will lead you to a nearby Spirit Collectible. If they are gold, they will lead you to a nearby Memory.

Memories are always hidden inside Devourers that you’ll need to purify by throwing your heart at them ().

Fortunately, nothing is missable, and even if you finish the game with a few collectibles un-secured, you can continue the game in free-roam afterward anyway!

Phase Two | The Garden

This very very short Second Phase of our After Us Trophy Guide is just to secure a single trophy that is only available once you’ve finished the story.

You will receive a special Life Seed upon completing the game for the first time. To unlock this phase’s one and only trophy, you’ll just need to plant it in “The Garden.”

Trophies in this phase:

Plant a Seed

Hope

Plant a Seed

Hope

Plant a seed in Gaia's Garden

What is this?

Online

After completing the main story, you will receive a single “Life Seed.” Each time a player completes the game for the first time, they are given one of these Life Seeds so that they can grow “The Garden.”

The Garden is an ever-growing place of commemoration for every player who successfully beat the game. Each player that beats the game gets to add a tree to the Garden with their Life Seed and permanently grow it by one plot! Maybe you can find my plot if you’re also put into “Garden #2.”

“Garden” can be found at the bottom of the Title Screen after beating the game.

Since you get returned here after the credits, it’s worth getting this out of the way as soon as you can. Just open the Garden option from the Title Screen, choose a plot to plant your Life Seed, and then leave once you’ve received the “Hope” trophy.

Phase Three | Cleanup

As I’m sure you know by now, this third and final phase of our After Us Trophy Guide is going to involve cleaning up any Spirit Collectibles and Memories you’ve missed, as well as collecting a few more misc trophies in general.

The amount of work still ahead of you depends heavily on how vigilantly you searched for collectibles during your initial playthrough.

Revisit any areas on the map for which you are still missing Spirit Collectibles (visible on the map ) or Memories (visible in the Memories menu) and then use Sing to locate and secure any you have remaining.

While there, keep an eye out for opportunities to progress the Miscellaneous Trophies too!

Spirit Collectible Trophies

Collectible

Grind

The “They All Matter” trophy requires you to save a total of 108 Spirits; 8 Spirit Vessels that you will unlock as part of the story, and 100 Collectible Spirits dotted across the game’s various explorable areas.

Collectible Spirits are clearly marked on your map , which makes it much easier to find them and their nearest Fast Travel Point.

Additionally, once you’re close to one, you can hold to start singing. While singing, the butterflies you spawn will indicate nearby collectibles. When the butterflies are blue, they will lead you to a Spirit Collectible, so follow them and continue to sing to pin down the Spirit’s exact location.

Memories Trophies

Perfect memory

Discover all memories

-

/89

+
What is this?

Collectible

Memories are small graphic mementos of Human Life, from before the world became the dystopian wasteland it is. They are all hidden inside certain Devourers; so be sure to kill any that you come across—just in case!

Memories, unlike collectibles, are not immediately marked on the map. They will be added to your map as gold orbs once you beat the main campaign.

This can make them slightly harder to pin down prior to the cleanup phase, but there are a few things that will help you:

The memories are divided up among the 8 Constellations’ explorable zones. Much like Spirit Collectibles, you can find nearby memories by singing . If the butterflies are gold, they will lead you to a memory!

The final helpful thing to note is that the order of the memories in the menu correlates to the order they appear in the level. So if you’re missing one near the bottom of the list; it’s probably near the end of the area!

Surrounded by giants

Collectible

Miscellaneous Trophies

Compassionate

Redeem 100 Devourers

-

/100

+
What is this?

Cumulative

Devourers are the tainted human enemies, coated in black oil. More often than not, they won’t attack you, but there are certainly some groups of attacking devourers throughout the game.

You can redeem a Devourer by throwing your heart at them with until they’re purified and fade away.

As all memories are stored in Devourers, you will end up having to redeem at least 86 Devourers to unlock the Perfect Memory Trophy, leaving you with only 14 more Devourers to redeem; a feat more than likely to happen naturally.

Gardener

Grow 100 Sprouts

-

/100

+
What is this?

Cumulative

As you play the game, you will frequently come across some small golden sprouts growing from the ground. There are far more than just 100 of these in the game, making this a very simple trophy to earn.

You simply need to grow 100 of these sprouts by using Burst of Life (hold then release ) near them. One area even requires you to use this ability in order to navigate the area!

This misc trophy is less likely to occur naturally than the others but is not a hard trophy to mop up if you don’t have it by the end of the game.

Bel canto

Sing 100 times

-

/100

+
What is this?

Cumulative

As you will know well by now, you can sing with to search for nearby collectibles. Considering the fact that there are 186 collectibles and you’re likely to sing for more than half of them, the Bel Canto trophy for singing 100 times should unlock naturally.

Whisperer

Greet 50 animal spirits

-

/50

+
What is this?

Cumulative

At any time in the game, you can hold to greet nearby spirits. They’ll respond by sending out a greeting of their own.

To unlock the “Whisperer” trophy, you simply need to do this on at least 50 different spirit animals.

This is very easy to achieve once you have unlocked They all matter, because every square inch of every explorable area will be crawling with spirits to greet.

Just make your way through a couple of your preferred areas (or just wander around The Ark), greeting animals along the way, until the Whisperer trophy unlocks!

Can you dig it?

Disable all diggers

What is this?

Chapter-Specific

Cumulative

The “Diggers” referred to here are not the large construction vehicles you see in the Countryside level. Instead, they are the huge oil refinery machines you shut down in each stage; the ones with flames coming out of the top.

When you destroy them, they get added to the map as a fast travel point, so the real objective here is to just unlock every Fast Travel point.

Honestly, this will likely happen naturally as you work through the story; it’s very unlikely that you’ll miss any.

These “Diggers” are visible from afar thanks to the flames that shoot out from their tops.
