The opening ship section of Aftermath. Note the similarities to Cataclysm.
Aftermath by Exenity (Account name: IIExenityII) and more
Song: At the Speed of Light by Dimrain47 (467339)
Verified and Published by Satcho
On October 14th of 2016, Satcho verified (or at least published the video of) and published the level Aftermath on his account, after 5795 attempts and less than 10 days of practicing the level (Satcho, go outside!) Recently, RobTop rated the version published by Satcho, giving players incentive to attempt the level and supporting its claim to the end of the ATSOL trilogy.
One of the most famous sections from Cataclysm, the piano ball.
Aftermath is a megacollab that was organized and first published by Exenity. The creators of the megacollab were Exenity, Squizz, Hinds, Vultra, Rhythmic, Waze, Bassiegames, Findexi, and Knobbelboy. It was intended to be the conclusion to the ATSOL trilogy (although it started before where Bloodbath ended) and served more as a v2 to Cataclysm rather than its own unique level, or a combination of Cataclysm and Bloodbath. This led to some debate into whether the level is really a sequel to Bloodbath or just a v2 of Cataclysm, but ultimately, it was the level that became most recognized as the end to the trilogy- there was no real competition.
The level’s first preview was published on August 18th, 2015, under the name “Afterclysm”, on Exenity’s YouTube channel. The name was later changed to “Aftermath” after December 10th of the same year, which gave it potential to be fudged into the abbreviation AA, as to follow CC and BB, abbreviations for Cataclysm and Bloodbath (although, Artificial Ascent recently stole that title. Now it’s just referred to as Aftermath).
Immediately after Aftermath’s publication on December 19th of that year, there was already a genral consensus that it was the third and last level of the ATSOL trilogy. Zimnoir12 (AKA that one guy that did those levels that were impossible), 3 days later, published an auto version of AfterCataBath, a level combining all 3.
After it was revealed that Exenity hacked Aftermath and cut the video, Exenity’s chances of getting his version rated dropped to 0. 8 months later, on August 9th, 2016, Exenity published a video saying that he would attempt to reverify Aftermath, with some nerfs and buffs. However, in the midst of Athanatos, Exenity found trouble staying with Aftermath. While he was reverifying, he put an obvious secret way in the published Aftermath that he had. Later on, he would remove the level entirely.
The story of Exenity and Aftermath drew to a close on December 10th, 2016. In the description of a YouTube video on his channel from that day, he said “My pc is dead, and I don't enjoy this game anymore so..”. As Exenity has not published any videos or given any updates on his profile, it would only make sense that he has quit GD, Aftermath unverified, and with no trace of the level on his account. The level now stands as rated on Satcho’s account.
Satcho is a player who has only recently stepped into the Geometry Dash spotlight, after being a mediocrely-high player (as in, beating demons quickly, but not doing too much that was extreme). However, after beating Bloodbath, and then beating Aftermath (which, added to Cataclysm, was beating the trilogy), Satcho’s popularity has risen as he is recognized as a great player. Overall, he has had a great 2016, beating demons such as Cosmic Calamity, A Bizarre Phantasm, Ultraviolet, Necropolis, Galatic Fragility, The Ultimate Phase, ICDX, and of course, Bloodbath and Aftermath. Hopefully, Satcho will continue to beat demons in the future!
And, in other news, the level "After Math" has been disliked multiple times, because, without math, it's hard to have geometry.
