    End of the Universe is a challenging, fast-paced space shooter with rogue-like elements. Players rapidly build and break custom star fighters with every run, all while trying to survive existential horrors lurking at the edge of space.

    Designed for short, energetic sessions with a one-touch control scheme. There are dozens of otherworldly weapons and skills to discover, 1000s of meaningfully different ship combinations to create, and hordes of enemies and environments to face down.

    A branching narrative system guides players into the beyond and, the farther out you get, the more bizarre things will become.

    Key Features:
    • 1000s of dynamically generated ships to unlock and upgrade.
    • Colorful, retro-styled pixel art
    • 70+ Game--changing skills and weapons to find and master.
    • 60+ enemy and boss variations to take down.
    • Challenging endgame with secrets to unlock.
    • Dozens of unique, mind-bending environments to discover.
    • Massive replayability with branching narrative choices that can take players across entirely different ends of the universe.
    • Streamlined & deep ship modification system.
    • Challenging, skill-based combat with mobile-friendly controls.

    The crash after picking one of the choices should be fixed for those of you who had it. Please update the app and let me know if it's still a problem

    Really appreciate all the screenshots and feedback you guys are posting through testflight, it's making bug smashing super efficient.

    Just a heads up on what I'll be trying to get into the build next week:
    1. 10 more unique boss permutations
    2. 4 new level types to increase variation within each run
    3. A 4th enemy faction type
    4. Varied starter choices that unlock more as you progressively discover new environments
    5. Randomized end game storylines (doesnt look like anyone's reached the end of the universe yet, but theres a ton of endgame content after that point :))

    While Testflight is making collecting feedback and bug reports super efficient, the downside is that you guys can't see how far everyone is getting. Here's the best I've seen so far:

    It's OnePlus 6T running Android 10. It's just a Force Close. Nothing comes up just a blank screen and then back to Main Menu.

    Thanks for the latest rounds of feedback everyone! I've got the launch build primed and approved for next week. The official release date is Jan 7th (iOS and Android). If you'd like to pre-order, it's available on the app store here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/end-of-the-universe/id1448678917 (as mentioned above)

    In addition to performance improvements and smashed bugs, I've also added a few more secret zones and weapons to uncover :). I won't be accepting any more tester at this time, but those with the current build are welcome to keep playing up until release.

    Aaaaand we're live! I make these games on my own in limited time frames, and I can't overstate how helpful this community has been in getting the game where it needed to be. Thanks again to everyone who helped test and debug!

    Too bad I missed the beta and didn't hear about this sooner. But on the other hand, it's damn good to discover it now and be able to play the official release!
    Loved the Immortal Rogue game, enjoyed similar spaceships "Shmups", so I'm sure I will love this one too :)
