McMillen took to his blog to break down the general premise of the game saying, 'Follow Ash as he flops his way through a future of pain and suffering. The player's job is to help him literally make a friend out of all the parts and pieces of people he finds. The game was revealed in a trailer on YouTube earlier today and will be coming to both PC and Nintendo Switch. You must guide Ash through nightmarish levels filled with "decaying" mutant creatures, collecting video game cartridges and tumors along the way.

The game is much bigger than Super Meat Boy, offering over 600 levels across 12 different chapters throughout the game. The End is Nigh will be released on Steam on July 12, and on Switch (and "possibly more consoles") at a later date. In addition, with each of the 20 mini-cartridges you find within the game, you'll be able to open up a plethora of new playable mini-games as well. All in all seems fairly interesting so if you're a fan of adventure platformers you may want to keep an eye on this one. They started work on this in December of a year ago as a way to get away from the constant work on another in-development title they have, 0uraboros.
