LifeAfter Crafting Recipes Guide

Hunger is one of your biggest foes in LifeAfter, so keep your pantry packed with this guide to all the recipes you can make.

LifeAfter is a crafting and survival game currently storming the charts for both Android and iPhone. LifeAfter pits you against a horde of zombies (although, in true Romero fashion, the game just calls them "infected"), the elements, and a variety of ever-decreasing resources that you must maintain. Although infected are dangerous, there is a far greater danger when you are first starting out: hunger.

Ingredients for food can be found while scrounging through the wilderness or from trading with NPCs. However, you won't want to waste your resources trying to figure out recipes.

That's where this guide comes in.

Here are all the different food recipes we've found so far in LifeAfter and what effects they have. They are broken into categories as best as possible, but keep in mind that there is some overlap between categories.

To create any food, you will need to find a fire. There is one in the central hub, and several you can find throughout the world of LifeAfter.
