The End, a game of death, belief and science

Tom Chatfield writes in: "The End is a free, online web-game commissioned by Channel 4 Education, and scheduled for release in August 2011. It is a game of self-discovery for 14-19 year olds which integrates strategy, puzzles and philosophical questions into a world which explores a range of commonly (or less commonly) held views about death, belief and science."

  1. Interesting stuff anyways…though once again it seems to me like proof that many, many parents should have had a license of some sort before having kids if this sort of stuff isn’t being taught.

  2. Based on the trailer the game seems to be a pretty typical platformer.  I’m curious to know if there’s anything in the MECHANICS that leads the player to a deeper understanding of death, or rather if the philosophizing is all contained in the wrapper.
