From legendary indie developer Edmund McMillen comes The End Is Nigh, a masocore platformer where players guide Ash through the ruins of a post-apocalyptic world to find a new friend when his favorite videogame cartridge finally breaks. From its pedigree, it would be easy to assume that The End is Nigh is a monochromatic Super Meat Boy, and that’s not an unfair assumption to make; it has the same precision platforming, brutal difficulty, and instant-respawning, but Meat Boy’s signature wall jump is swapped for Ash’s ledge dangle and he is able to propel himself greater distances while dangling. You can watch Andrew (@playcritically) play through the first hour below.
