Barcelona, Spain / Giebelstadt, Germany, 06 June 2023: Being nominated as a finalist in two categories at the Apple Design Awards is already a great honor.

Endling – Extinction is Forever – originally created by Herobeat Studios – takes place in a plausible near future. Humankind has altered the biosphere to the degree that makes it harder and harder to sustain animal and plant life. Even humans struggle to breathe. In this horrendous quasi-apocalyptic scenario, you – as the player – take control of the last mother fox in this dying world. You are now fighting for survival, not only your own but the survival of your cute, clumsy cubs who depend on their mother to bring them food.

By touching on this sensitive subject matter and presenting it with creative and stylized visuals, Endling has managed to engage a multitude of players and jury members. The fact that Endling has received an award at the Apple Design Awards today shows that its experience is not compromised on mobile and is just as impactful as it is on PC and console.

For those who have gotten curios, Endling is currently up to 90% off on the Apple App Store.
