Edmund McMillen, one of the co-creators of Super
Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, today announced his new sprawling
adventure/platformer The End is Nigh.
You play as Ash, a blobby “thing” who just wants to make a friend (in the literal sense; on his journey, he makes a friend out of pieces of people). Just like Super Meat Boy, it’s packed with levels, fun collectibles, and brutal challenge.
The End is Nigh will be available on Steam July 12. You can check out the trailer below and read more about the game on its Steam page.
While I’m still sad about the cancellation of Mewgenics, this new project looks even more exciting. We loved Super Meat Boy, so we’re eagerly anticipating McMillen’s return to the platformer genre.
