'Super Meat Boy' gets a surprise successor in 'The End is Nigh'

The End is Nigh is a new platformer from Edmund McMillen, one half of the team responsible for Super Meat Boy, and Tyler Glaiel, who previously collaborated with McMillen on The Basement Collection and is best known for his own work for Closure.

In The End Is Nigh, you play as Ash, a sentient blob that has survived "the end of the world" according to the game's Steam page. Today he unveiled that project as The End is Nigh, "a sprawling adventure-platformer where you die a lot, but that's okay because you are probably already dead anyway".

The End is Nigh boasts over 600 levels spread across 12 chapters as Ash pursues a quest to make a friend out of the bits and pieces her finds as he travels.

The reveal trailer gets very loud and sweary in spots, so depending on where you are right now, you might want to turn the volume down or throw on some headphones before you watch it, or just wait until later. You must guide Ash through nightmarish levels filled with "decaying" mutant creatures, collecting video game cartridges and tumors along the way.

100s of collectible little squishy tumors! The game will be available on Nintendo Switch at a later date, and may also see a release on other consoles too, but Xbox and/or PS4 versions are not yet confirmed. Despite a relatively quick turnaround time (McMillen says the game was born of a two-week game jam in September of last year), it's "by far, the largest game (level wise)" he's ever worked on.

The End is Nigh launches on July 12th exclusively on Steam.
