Narrative puzzle platformer Minute of Islands will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC and Mac via Steam and GOG on March 18, publisher Mixtvision and developer Studio Fizbin announced. A demo is available now for PC via Steam as part of Steam Game Festival from February 3 to February 9.
Here is an overview of the game, via Mixtvision:
Minute of Islands places players on a strange and beautiful archipelago. Polluted by dangerous spores, the only thing that keeps the islands safe are mysterious antennas that were built by Giants when they lived alongside people. Now, these ancient machines are failing, and the only person who can repair them is the young engineer Mo and her versatile Omni Switch tool. Driven to protect her family and friends, Mo sets out on a quest to repair the machines and save the islands. But not everything is as it seems, and the damage runs deeper than she could possibly have imagined. It’s a sombre tale designed to make players examine their priorities through Mo, as she delves into her subconscious and finds that her drive and ambition are not the assets she believes them to be.
Minute of Islands has a bold art style that sees each frame individually handcrafted by Studio Fizbin’s team of artists and illustrators. Every island is lovingly filled with detail, creating a world that begs to be explored as players uncover its many visual narratives.
