The End is a serious game, designed to help young adults deal with difficult questions, including that of gender presentation and identity. The character creation screen in The End does not require characters to select a gender and allows a mixture of typically masculine physicalities (such as a beard) to be paired with typically feminine options (such as long eyelashes or a skirt). Due to players not selecting a gender identity or sex, the game does not refer to the player using specific pronouns.
