Minotaur is funded... but we still have a day!
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 @Sydrad! Thank you for such an inspiring comment! We're really glad that you liked Minotaur so much, and will now try even harder to match you expectations : )) Not that we've been slacking off before, of course.

Cheers and thanks again :steamhappy: :steamhappy:

I hope to see this game come to fruition and release fully as planned! I haven't been following the game for as long as I would have liked but I know for sure that this is going to be one of if not my "most anticipated game" at the moment. I would like to wish the U7 Team the BEST of luck in developing this amazingly beautiful game. I know that U7 is and shall continue to be hard at work crafting this game for not only the public, but for themselves as well. Making a Game is no easy task, but making a Game THIS beautiful is a feat all its own. You've done an Amazing job on it so far U7 and I know for a fact that expectations will only grow more and more, however, I'm sure that you can Deliver what is expected and go above and beyond. The love you show for this game is clear as day when you see and hear it as you experience the Demo (As Short as it is at the moment. (Insert Phallic Joke Here because I'm immature)) So Thank you U7 and GOOD LUCK!

@White Light Knight of the Night Thank you! We're very happy that you liked the demo : ) We will release first updates in just a couple of days, but they will only be available to Kickstarter backers... However, we're thinking about how to make beta accessible to new players - we'd love to gather more feedback, so we'll probably make some kind of announcement in the near future. Full game will cost €15 (or other currency equivalent... in Steam's exchange rate ; ) We're hoping to release in the end of this year... Or maybe beginning of 2018. So stay with us :steamhappy: Also, best of luck with your exams!

@Chrome: we absolutely love it too! It's a licensed track from "Murder Ballads" album; the song's called "Haunts Me" by David Lawrence. Now you can easily find it : ) And it will of course be included into Minotaur OST!
