End of Lines is an interactive graphic novel for PC/Mac/Linux & Nintendo Switch.
The sky is red. Or is it?
The air’s so hot it feels red.
When did it stop being blue?
A battered old paper with words I can’t read
and lines that fade and melt across the tears and folds.
Lines that guide us towards hope.
The hope of a welcoming land.
And yet, we don’t know what we’ll find beyond the map.
Where the lines end.
Following a climate-induced apocalypse, a group of survivors centered around a small family wanders in the devastated countryside of Southern Europe, looking for a livable place to settle.
A well-researched, environmental tale that acts as a warning about climate inaction and the collapse of ecosystems.
