Chasing the End is a pixel-art style puzzle platformer that unfolds in Seoul's Itaewon district as the world teeters on the brink of apocalypse.

Chasing the End is the debut installment of a planned trilogy that immerses players in a narrative-driven experience set amidst the impending apocalypse. Players must escape an eerie Seoul and uncover the mystery behind a secret government project to evacuate the planet. Players solve puzzles, overcome obstacles, and unfold a captivating story amid the city's ruins.

Chasing the End unveils a narrative-driven puzzle adventure that highlights the quest for hope through courage and bonds in a crumbling city. As the world approaches its end in six months, join Rion to uncover the truth behind a secret project within the abandoned shadows of Seoul.

In the face of an impending asteroid collision, Seoul transforms completely. Our protagonist, Rion, ventures into the unknown, tracing the steps of a covert operation intended for space evacuation.

Rion's journey takes her through the remains of Seoul in search of clues regarding this secretive project. This collapsed city is fraught with peril, from the rubble to the rogues and the remnants of rebellion eyeing Rion with hostile intent. She must overcome these diverse obstacles and threats to find the clues pointing toward mankind's last beacon of hope—the secret project.

Chasing The End releases in Early Access later this year.

"Since the game’s demo presence at various events in Korea last year, we’ve been impressed by the positive feedback it’s garnered from players,” said a NEOWIZ spokesperson. “We eagerly anticipate working closely with JINO Games on the successful global launch of Chasing the End."

"I am delighted to collaborate with NEOWIZ and appreciate their unwavering support in publishing indie gems like Chasing the End," said Kim Jinho, CEO, JINO Games. “My game started as a passion project, and it feels surreal that we’re now tracking toward an Early Access launch. I hope the first chapter of this series provides a memorable experience for players."

The demo version of the game is available through Steam and localized in English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese (Simplified), and Chinese (Traditional).

Key Features:

  • The Ruins of Seoul: With only six months left until an asteroid endangers Earth, once vibrant Seoul has morphed into a violent, lawless place. Join Rion in navigating Seoul, rendered in unique 2.5D pixel art graphics, to search for hidden clues.
  • Unveiling the Truth: As Seoul teeters on the brink of despair under the shadow of an asteroid threat, Rion faces the truth behind the secret space evacuation project. Explore the ruins of the once lively city on a quest for hope's last remnants, driven by courage and bonds in a city that's fallen apart.
  • Intricate Puzzles and Creative Platforming: In a Seoul rendered dysfunctional, danger lurks around every corner. Use all available means to navigate the obstacles laid before you. Direct confrontation isn't always necessary. Strategically use the environment to hide, divert attention, or even subdue enemies. Outwit dangerous situations both wisely and stealthily.

Chasing the End is coming to PC (Steam).
