Game Information

Available on:PCJul 12, 2017

Developers: Edmund McMillen, Tyler Glaiel

Genre: Platformer

The End Is Nigh is a sprawling adventure platformer where the player takes control over Ash, one of few "things" that have "survived" the "end of the world". Follow Ash as he flops his way through a future of pain and suffering. Feel his stress levels rise as you throw him into an endless swarm of decaying, mutant animal-like creatures and help aid his final epic quest... to simply make a friend (out of pieces of people he finds along his journey). Oh, also you collect video game cartridges and tumors! if that does anything for ya.

A worthwhile, if familiar, successor to Super Meat Boy.

Backtracking to previous levels can be a pain, but the number of optional collectibles, secret levels, and more make it worth your time

At the end of the day, you probably already know if this game is right for you. If you couldn't get enough of Super Meat Boy and have spent the past seven years fiending for more punishing platformers, than The End of Nigh is something you should immediately inject into your veins. If you are usually iffy on super-challenging platformers, but curious if this is the one that will turn you around, keep on walking.

Edmund McMillen and Tyler Glaiel have done it again. The End Is Nigh is a new masterpiece, a statament of how to create videogame. It hooks the player and makes you an addict of this wicked plattform game.
