A break-up can leave your life in shambles, the world tinged with ashen gray. Things that made you happy no longer work. Minutes grind away on the clock, time ticking so slowly and yet slipping away. It's a terrible place to be in your life, yet one many of us will inevitably find ourselves in. Sean Wenham's The End of the World seeks to capture that sensation as we join a character who's wandering his home town now that he's newly-alone.

Hand-painted, the dull shades of the world work to put the player in a depressed mindset, with past memories of the relationship filled with warm, cheerful color. It almost stings to see these bright memories in this gray world, evoking the same emotions the protagonist must be feeling. The color choice alone is enough to convey many of the emotions of the game, but there is still much more to see for those who want to explore being brokenhearted.

The End of the World is available for $2.43 on the App Store and Google Play. For more information on the game and developer Sean Wenham, you can head to the game's site or follow them on YouTube and Twitter.
