Pardon my ignorance, but are they any other post-apocalyptic, dying world survival settings out there like Dark Sun?

Pardon my ignorance, but are they any other post-apocalyptic, dying world survival settings out there like Dark Sun? Don't care if they are primitive or modern.

    Pretty sure Asunder counts, and it's a very very solid game. Lots of weird stuff in it too, but the good kind of fantasy weird.

    Earthdawn is very post apoc, although its not exactly dying earth. Stuff's just a mess.
    There is the literally Dying Earth setting as well.

    Night Land. There's a thread about it right now. It's probably the closest to Dark Sun, but the sun is literally dark.

    I was sure there was some OSR game for playing in Zothique, but I can't seem to find it.

    I really have an affinity for the Gyre setting that comes with Worlds without number.

    jist is as you probably would expect. uncountable things have happened before the hear and now, numoerous alien invasions, the rise of great sourcerer-kings, etc, but has really good base flavor to it for sandbox stuff. really like the legacy of long forgotten magic and tech influencing the world.

    Numenera technically counts.
    It's sci-fantasy set on Earth 1 billion years in the future and is what I'd describe as the first NieR game if Moebius did it's art direction.

    There was a game called Darwin's World in the 2000s, I think, or it might have been a fever dream. It was set on post-apocalyptic Earth after World War III, and it's pretty heavy on the "Earth has been so cooked by nuclear radiation that we're looking at a global extinction event: what do?" angle.

    There's also Gamma World D20.
