Your perfect self-isolation time waster is here

The game called called "The End of the Game" Game, and as you could expect, it takes its title from Weezer's 2019 single "The End of the Game," set to be released on their upcoming Van Weezer album.
According to the band, though, the game is impossible to win. "It's the perfect game to play while #stayingathome because you can't beat it," a press release states. "Really. We've tried. And it's not just cause we aren't that good at video games."
It further explains the game like this:
It's a computer game ode to the boss levels are that are notoriously impossible to beat, harkening back to mid-'80s and early '90s faves like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Street Fighter II and Punch Out. It's also a fairly obvious head nod to the band's song "End of the Game" from their forthcoming album, Van Weezer, which is still set for release on May 15.

And as you just read above, Weezer are still planning to release Van Weezer on May 15 via Crush/Atlantic — COVID-19 be damned.
