Endling shows off gameplay in this new trailer for this touching game, as showcased during Guerrilla Collective 2021. In Endling, it is your mission to safely guide a fox mother, the last of her kind, and her three vulnerable cubs through the dystopian future of an exploited Earth, where there is barely enough room or food for them to survive.

Looks a beautiful game

The art's nice, but the gameplay looks like a 2D walking sim. There's just one path as far as I could see, and everything on it looks contextual. Not my jam, I'm afraid.

And, as a sales pitch, this certainly could have done without the heavy-handed narration.

I don't understand why this video is such a blurry mess, doesn't do it justice



Such a cool project, really asking for polished and precise animation which is where small studios often cut some corners... So far so good.

Not sure how linear this is but if it's linear as in little nightmares / inside / unto the end I'm definitely in.

Would love to see this on gamepass.

Is this because you think the studio would get more exposure/players/release coverage (read: money) if their game was part of gamepass or because it would be quick/easy* to try out if you already had a sub to the service?

I already tried it out as a demo with a very positive impression so the former. It's a tiny studio and releasing a furry adventure game on the same day as Stray didn't help them getting noticed

Endling - Extinction is Forever isn't for everyone. That's not because it's a particularly hard game to play or because it's mechanically complex- no, in terms of gameplay, it's actually really quite accessible and easy to get into. Its oppressive world and brutal story, however, might not be the sort of escapism that everyone looks for when playing a video game.

If, however, you're on the lookout for a short, well-told, uniquely captivating experience, Endling is well worth checking out. At roughly three or four hours long, its $29.99 price tag might seem a bit steep, but if you're the sort of player that can forgive a game's brevity because of its quality, Endling is certainly not lacking in quality.

Endling – Extinction is Forever for PS5 will be a completely new experience in terms of how to play this critically acclaimed indie game. Players can dive deeper into the world and can feel and hear what’s happening around them with full DualSense support. Graphics and performance have been improved as well, to deliver the best possible version of “Ending – Extinction is Forever”.

This beautiful 3D- side-scrolling survival adventure let me explore and discover the destructive nature of the human race. I experienced a world ravaged by us humans through the eyes of an animal that corrupts, pollutes, and exploits the most precious and valuable resource we have – our planet. I fed the cubs, watched them grow up and noticed their unique personalities and fears, and – most importantly – helped them survive.
