Minotaur is funded... but we still have a day!
:maximumeffort:
Description
Release date: Q4 2017
An adventure game with visual novel-style narrative, Minotaur tells a dark mystery story set in a newly created science fantasy world. It is a game inspired by Zero Escape and Danganronpa series, various visual novels and old-school point-and-click quests by LucasArts, Sierra and others.

GAMEPLAY

A picture is worth a thousand words! And demo is just... priceless. Download our 0.2.0 demo for PC/Mac to try Minotaur out.

GameJolt[gamejolt.com] | Indie DB | https://u7committee.itch.io/minotaur | Our website[www.uof7.com]

A short summary of gameplay features (0.2.0):

• point-and-click exploration and puzzle solving,
• visual novel-style narrative in complete voice over,
• rich and detailed sci-fi setting,
• character skills,
• hint system.

Coming in next version:

• timed sequences and boss fights,
• multiple choices which affect progression and endings.

If you're stuck at Nod's or Maya's, check out our spoiler-free walkthrough[www.uof7.com].

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[www.uof7.com] (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 hookers demons and penguins. We called it The Universe of Seven[www.uof7.com]. 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[www.uof7.com], a novel scheduled for 2017 and a prequel to Minotaur, and a board game.

...

We hope you like Minotaur demo. Let us know what you think, feedback is important. We listen and try to make the game better.

See you soon in Nova!

Hi @Warlord_Of_The_Abyss! Thank you for the love!! Don't worry about Kickstarter - it ended successfully, and your support on Steam will be very important. We'd like to release at the end of this year, but we were also thinking about Early Access in a couple of months. Either way, we'll be looking forward to seeing you there :D

I absolutely LOVED the gamejolt demo. I wish I could help with the funding on kickstarter, but I live in the U.S. so getting money to you guys is a bit difficult. If you guys were able to release on steam, you can definetly count on me buying it!! I love the art style and the character personalities (from what I have seen so far) and cant wait for the full game. When is your projected release date for the full game? Much love; A dedicated minotaur fan

@A-card Thank you!! As far as we understood, you're going to play the game when it's out (despite not playing this type of "escape" games before)... We hope you do! So don't worry about missing Kickstarter (again, if we understood correctly:-) There will definitely be a Chinese translation of the full game

这么说你们的众筹已经结束啦?sad,预约奖励还蛮诱人的。
我的英文水准很烂,所以大概还是用中文的好,但是对你们是不是有点麻烦呢,哈哈。
这个游戏出了我就会买,事实上这个游戏太棒了,虽然以前从来没有玩过这种密室逃脱类的游戏,但我愿意尝试。

Очень понравилась демка. Сразу видно, что авторы вкладывают душу в свой проект. Желаю команде The Universe of Seven успехов! Обязательно куплю игру, когда она выйдет в Steam.
