Endling is an eco-conscious adventure about the last mother fox on Earth
Endling is the journey of a mother fox and her three cubs as they survive a human-ravaged planet, and it’s slated to release in 2021.
Thoughtful games about climate change are important in these times, especially as scientists warn that the impacts of climate change are only accelerating. Endling is stepping up to the crease as a game about a fox and her three cubs in a world devastated by human disregard for the environment.
As the last mother fox left, you must secure a future for your children by guiding them to the only place on Earth where they won’t be harmed by humans.

Here’s what you can expect from the gameplay:
Explore Endling’s 3D side-scrolling world and defend your cubs, three tiny and defenseless fur balls, feed them, see how they grow up level after level, notice their unique personalities and fears, and most importantly, make them survive.
Use the cover of night to sneak with your litter towards a safer place. Spend the day resting in an improvised shelter and plan for your next movement carefully since it could be the last one for you or your cubs.
The game is being developed by Barcelona, Spain-based studio Herobeat Studios, which is comprised of former game development colleagues who are passionate about environmental issues and animal welfare. Publishing the game is German label Handy Games.
Endling is expected to release sometime in 2021 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. While the developer’s website appears to be down at present, you can find more info at the publisher’s site here, and the Steam page here.
