Minit is a new indie adventure game from a four-person development team. It’s all pixelated and monochrome, like an old Gameboy game. The premise of the game is that you find a cursed sword that makes days end in just one minute.
I’ve just today found out about Minit, an upcoming indie adventure game. The development team consists of just four people of different backgrounds. Devolver Digital will be acting as produced for it. I don’t know much about it, but color me all shades of intrigued. The game’s concept seems pretty interesting, and I’m a sucker for pixel-art games. Minit got a new trailer recently, which shows off some of the gameplay, and we also learned its release date. The game is coming out on April 3rd. It’ll be available on PC, macOS, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
So, what exactly is Minit? I’ll let the game’s description say it: “Minit is a peculiar little adventure played sixty seconds at a time. Journey outside the comfort of your home to help unusual folk, uncover countless secrets, and overcome dangerous foes, all in hopes of lifting a rather unfortunate curse that ends each day after just one minute.” So, that’s it in a nutshell. Your character finds a cursed sword, which causes every day to end in a single minute.
The trailer, which is appropriately one minute long, makes the game look really engaging. If I’m seeing this correctly, after one minute is up, you are going back to the last place you rested at. So, whatever you want to do, you’ll have to do very quickly. It sounds like it can get a bit aggravating, but I’m sure the designers have implemented ways of keeping it interesting. I’ll be keeping an eye out for this one. In the meantime, take a peek at the trailer below.
