As The World Ends is a 2 page apocalypse-survival game inspired by Train To Busan.

Despite being only two pages, it's got a great crunch to it, and it does some really inventive things with character death and statlines, making every part of your character impermanent, but meaningful.

It's also semi-GMless, which works in its favor, allowing PCs who die to join in on the GMing role. And PC death is definitely a thing in World Ends. It's never triggered by a bad roll or forced through GM action, but choosing to die allows you to throw a powerful bonus onto a roll, swinging the story in a direction of your choosing.

I really dig this game. It's quick, easy to pick up, it lets everyone collaborate, and it pulls everyone into the story very effectively.

If you don't like character death, you never have to use the mechanic, so you can play an exciting but optimistic-toned apocalypse, or you can use the mechanic often and have a lot of meaningful, intense tragedy.

Basically, this is real good, it's absolutely worth picking up, and I'd recommend it to anyone.
