OverviewOverview

Unto The End is a cinematic combat-adventure where the fighting is modelled in a read-and-react style. It requires time to master the unusual system but offers many ways to take on foes. Tactics and intelligent decisions are as important for survival as quick reactions.

As you play an adventure unfolds through these individual encounters with different enemies and characters in the foreboding snow covered world. Each one features intelligent, worthy opponents. Each one has their own motivations and place in the world.

It creates a challenging experience for one player with minimal handholding. You play a father trying to get his family back. All your abilities are available from the outset but understanding and mastering those skills will take time, patience and practice.

As well as the combat there are plenty of scenarios where you can choose not to fight, and circumnavigate boss enemies or even make friends with particular enemies. These choices will result in consequences later in the game and may contribute to which ending you arrive at.

It's created by a husband and wife team who had the vision for the game many years ago. Inspired by travels in Iceland, Scotland, Chile and Pategonea. They wanted to capture that feeling of relying on your wits and the sense of adventure that comes from travel.
