The End is Nigh, the spiritual successor to Super Meat Boy, is now available for PC players on Steam. Developed by Edmund McMillen and Tyler Glaiel, The End is Nigh is an action-adventure platformer, and it will likely be the nail-biting nightmare that Super Meat Boy is. The Steam page boasts several features, such as 600+ levels, lots of hidden extras, over 80 achievements, and stress. Well, that’s encouraging.
Steam is now richer for another game by Edmund McMillen, of Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac fame. The End is Nigh is an action-adventure platformer, and, judging by what we’ve seen so far, it’s the spiritual sequel to Super Meat Boy, in terms of extreme difficulty and precision platforming. The game gives you control of Ash, one of the rare survivor of the end of the world. Or, as The End is Nigh Steam page puts it:
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).
You can also collect game cartridges and tumors, which is nice. The Steam page also lists the game’s features. It seems that the game will have a lot to offer, especially for patient, resilient gamers. Here’s what you can expect from The End is Nigh:
- 600+ levels!
- 12+ explorable chapters!
- 20+ collectible and fully playable mini game cartridges! (each with their own tiny achievements!)
- 80+ achievements that will make you feel good about yourself
- 100s of collectible little squishy tumors!
- loads of hidden extras and endings that you will probably see someone else find before you do!
- and stress!
