Binding of Isaac creator announces new game: The End is Nigh

The End is Nigh confirmed for Nintendo Switch release

Edmund McMillen - the brains behind cult indie titles like Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac - has revealed his latest project and it follows in much the same vain of his past work, with its tight platforming, somewhat-sinister art-style/aesthetic and evident hard from the get-go.

Are you excited for the End is Nigh?


The End is Nigh is another platformer that McMillen and Glaiel actually started during a Game Jam in December. It sounds just as out of the box as his previous projects. The player's job is to help him literally make a friend out of all the parts and pieces of people he finds.

The End is Nigh! is set to be huge with over 600 levels, 12 explorable chapters, over 20 collectible game cartridges (which you can fully play and have their own achievements), and more collectibles than you'll know what to do with. A little burn out from working on 0urboros, a procedurally-generated platforming shooter that McMillen says is still coming, the Super Meat Boy designer relished the chance to dabble in more strict, level-based design again. The PC version has actually been dated for July 12, while the Nintendo Switch version will arrive "later", and "possibly" alongside other consoles, maybe even PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The gameplay seems pretty similar to Super Meat Boy, however, the atmosphere looks a bit darker in places.
