This is THE END.
It all starts with you. Your end, in particular. After you meet your untimely demise the game begins.
The End is a web browser based game that is all about self discovery and helping people to make sense of some of life’s bigger philosophical questions. It encourages the debate of moral, philosophical, and practical issues all while being a fun multi-level platforming and strategy game.
You start off with a simple character creator before heading off on your adventure. The game is a simple platformer that has you utilizing the powers of light and shadow to solve puzzles and make it safely across the map. Simple enough, right?
The game will present you with various questions as you play and you must answer in order to proceed but you only have one key to unlock one door. The game is designed to really make the player stop and think and the more honest you are with your answers the more interesting the results!
Every question you answer will give you a place on the “Death Dial” which will show you where you place among famous thinkers and your facebook friends. You can read up on who you are most like and it even shows where your previous answers had you placed as you progress through the game.
To top it all off, there is a mini game included called “Death Cards”.This was one of my favorite parts of the game. Each side has a specific number of colored tiles with three numbers each. Simply place a tile down next to your opponent’s tile that has a larger number. The person with the larger number wins that tile. This will become increasingly challenging as you move on to higher and higher levels and various “powers” will be unlocked on the way that you (and your opponent) can use. Such “powers” as rotating your tile, adding more to a number to make it higher, and even breaking your opponent’s applied “power” are a few. The goal is to have the board covered with more of your own colored tiles than the opponents.
The End certainly isn’t your every day game. It’s a game with purpose; to enlighten, guide, and help people find themselves; but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable or interesting. If you would like to play it for yourself just CLICK HERE!
