After arriving on the island of the Wild Things, Max soon stumbles upon their village. Now I'm going to spoil the rest of the game for you in this paragraph, so skip ahead if you'd like. Once Max is done being tormented and hazed by the various creatures, he soon finds that tragic events are in motion on the island. Stars are raining from the sky and are pounding the land relentlessly. Even worse: inky shadows are consuming the land and threaten to swallow everything up in oily blackness. The game ends with the Wild Things desperately constructing a tower that will reach the moon. And they do. The game actually ends with a playful dance in a moon crater.
