Tag Archive: The End of the World

The end of the world as we know it comes in many forms. Invaders from space, from another dimension, or even inside your own body take over and upend everything. Loud, showy, crystal clear apocolypses change your world in an instant.
But sometimes you only know it was the end after everything is over. Quiet, slow, encroaching on your world until you have no space left to live in.
Pick your favorite end of the world on 600 Second Saga.
