UFO: Afterlight is the third in Altar's UFO series of real-time strategy games, which are widely considered as a spiritual successor to Mythos Games and Micropose's X-Com Series. It combines the strategic geoscape of the planet and the tactical squad-based missions. It is distinguishable by the shift in the artistic style and setting of the game.

On May 2004, aliens came to Earth. Ignoring all attempts to make first contact, the aliens dropped a massive cloud of spores over the Earth, covering the skies and choking the life out of the planet. In UFO: Aftermath (2003) the player takes the role of the commander of the last few scattered humans left on the planet with the aim of overcoming the alien threat. It's sequel UFO: Aftershock (2005) follows the events of Aftermath. 50 years has passed, and after losing contact with Earth, the inhabitants of the Laputa Space Station must discover what happened. UFO: Afterlight (2007) takes place at roughly the same time as Aftershock, with the player controlling the humans attempting to colonize Mars.
