The End of the World as We Know It

Drenched by rain, lashed by spray, deafened by thunder, and blustered by wind, we arrive at The End of the World as We Know It tossed in a raw display of the power of nature, positioned on a boardwalk that's buckling under the waves. The storm is such that at times we can't even see, as if the ocean plans to swallow us whole. But at the end of the boardwalk we spy a life preserver (one might need to zoom quite close to actually click on it), and we somehow manage to get to the shore, our heads barely above the crest of the violent surf.

But if the waves don't get us, the fire and brimstone will: the city before us is engulfed in flames, with gas pipelines exploding as fire billows from the earth. While wrecked cars and trucks lie abandoned on a collapsed bridge, a jetliner has crashed into an apartment building, and fireballs hurtle through the skies. Simply put, it's a hell of a calamity. (Click on any image to zoom in.) Created by Sera Bellic of Lick sim designs, The End of the World as We Know It will remain on display until sometime in July, when a new design will take its place.
