The world is scheduled to be eaten by a mythological demon with the head of an ugly fish. How much can you take with you before the end arrives? Yes, it's all over for the Earth. Fortunately, lesser goddess Terra Nova has a plan: she's created a puppet, and has given it your soul and the ability to absorb whatever it touches.

The world is coming to an end later this week, when it's scheduled to be eaten by a mythological demon with the head of an ugly fish. Fortunately, lesser goddess Terra Nova has a plan: she's created a puppet, and has given it your soul and the ability to absorb whatever it touches. Now, it falls to you to rescue as much of Earth's greatness as you can before the end arrives.

You begin as a small puppet capable of absorbing only the tiniest of objects. These then become part of your body -- a glass marble you collect becomes your head and a pair of jellybeans becomes your hands. Mice, frogs and children tower over you, resisting your efforts to save them from a doomed planet. But with every object you collect, your puppet self grows larger. Eventually, you'll become a lumbering behemoth with fire engines for arms and the ability to absorb entire buildings.

The Wonderful End of the World takes you through 12 unique locations, with countless treasures to gather before the end comes. Steal some sweets from the candy store, where gummi fish swim in a blueberry river; visit a surrealist library to find that the words have literally leapt out of their books; and explore the Megalopolis, where you'll watch a lively end-of-the-world parade and then gobble it up before making your way to grab the tallest skyscraper ever built.

Hints & Tips

  • Go for the "low-hanging fruit" first. Grab all the small items you can.
  • Grab all you can from your immediate vicinity before exploring elsewhere.
  • When you're bigger, return to an earlier area to pick up objects you couldn't absorb before.

Availability and system requirements: The Wonderful End of the World is scheduled for a fall 2007 release, and will be available for purchase online from www.dejobaan.com. The game requires Windows 2K, XP or Vista; a P4 1.5GHz or equivalent; 1GB system memory; a 3D card with 128MB video memory; and Microsoft DirectX 9.0c or higher.
