A short summary of main gameplay features (0.2):

GRAPHICS



Minotaur is a 2,5D game with 150+ animated backgrounds. At the risk of sounding cocky, we think it looks really cool. And its native resolution is full HD.

STORY AND CHARACTERS



Minotaur tells a story about a group of nine characters (five of which are playable) who find themselves unable to leave their own home. Tensions rise as things start to take turn for the worse and it becomes clear that their unfortunate situation is not an accident, but a trap of elaborate design. Revealing the identity of its creator and understanding their motives is now the matter of life and death.

The story unfolds from perspective of five different characters, and although you can only unlock routes in succession, your actions and choices in each of them have universal effect and lead to one of four different endings.

SETTING



We created our own universe with blackjack and hook... sorry, demons and penguins. We called it The Universe of Seven. It's a very detailed science fantasy world with its own history, geography, rulebook and characters. We hope that Minotaur will be the first in a series of games set in U7. Other U7 projects we're currently working on are Red Crown, a novel scheduled for 2018 and a prequel to Minotaur, and a board game.

new world called The Universe of Seven. Here’s what we hope you’ll love about it:

Story and characters



Minotaur’s story is mainly focused on nine characters who come to find themselves trapped in their apartment building. Nod’s route, which is fully available in this Early Access release, follows a synthet named Nod Pikes as he attempts to escape and come to terms with his past – with help (kind of) from his lovely sharp-tongued AI assistant Ollie. Just like the game overall, Nod’s route has multiple endings. We call them: wicked, sad, very sad, brutal and shocking. Take your pick!

A couple more notes about the story:

  • All four remaining routes will be added to the game for free.
