Edmund McMillen, the creator of The Binding of Isaac and Super Meat Boy, has let it be known that Nintendo is getting a new game soon.
Titled “The End is Nigh” this strange story recounts the travails of Ash who like the erstwhile Meat Boy must pass through a seriously dangerous series of obstacles and hindrances.
The landscape consists of platforms, pointed objects and booby traps that mean certain death. He must make a few pals along the way as well. Already released on Steam, this game carries on the McMillen trademark of a haunted, weird and macabre atmosphere.
The echelons of rising difficulty are also a hallmark of this game. There are over 600 such levels making the competition go through the roof. The game will come to the Switch on 12th December of this year.
McMillen did get a little help from Tyler Glaiel in creating this game. The announcement of the release date was made on Twitter.
The creature named Ash in the game is shaped like an amorphous mass of gelatinous matter. In fact, he looks like a blob. There are various mini games and collectibles hidden in the mix too.
