Minotaur is an adventure game set in a 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 current 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.

- It’s fully voiced over in English by a great cast.

GAMEPLAY

Minotaur has point and click mechanics at its core, so we’re trying to make the process of pointing and clicking as engaging as possible. In Nod’s route alone, you’ll be solving many different puzzles, fighting an ancient robot, and even climbing lots of stairs. Hm… That last one sounded much better in our heads. It’s actually one of our favorite parts!

GRAPHICS

We’re spending a lot of time on making the world of Minotaur feel alive and immersive, and we think that graphics and animations play a huge part in that. Check out our Early Access trailer – everything in it has been captured directly from the game.

MUSIC

It’s good. Really. We’ve listened to thousands of tracks, and picked the best of them for Nod’s route.

WORLD

We often say Minotaur is a cyberpunk game, but that’s just us trying to sell it. In truth, its world is more of a science fantasy setting, and we’re obsessed with having it figured out down to the tiniest detail. Why else would we make a whole website dedicated to its lore?

Are you not convinced yet? Syl, and that was us at our best. How about trying out the demo then? We’re sure that the beginning of the story will pique your interest. And if you get stuck, feel free to use our spoiler-free walkthrough.

Hope to see you soon in Nova DC! 💚🐧

Hi everyone,

I hope you're all enjoying your holidays (or that you did enjoy them if they're over already)!

Happy holidaysHappy holidays!


It's been a while since we posted here on IndieDB... And this is actually where we first started talking about U7, which now seems ages ago (wait... it actually was). Well, we've come a long way since then, and I'm very happy to tell you that we set the date for Minotaur's Early Access release to 28 March 2019. Finally! (Hopefully for you, just like for us, it's more like "Yes, finally!" than "Ugh, finally".)

Over the course of past half-year, we've been working hard on final parts of Nod's route, and created what I think are the most beautiful and emotional scenes of the game so far. We can't wait to share them with you... And I've prepared some screenshots in the meantime.

Hades, we even got a walking Armadillo mech in one of the scenes.

Nod's story also got all five endings that we originally intended for it to have. One of those is so secret I'm not sure how to get it myself.

Stop

I bet you won't


Some recent concept art for those final parts... (I really hope we'll be able to finish a companion art book to OST - a short but very pretty thing - in time for release.)

Well, time to get back to work. As usual, we're very thankful for your patience and support. I'm sorry that preparing Early Access release took us longer than expected, but we poured our heart and soul into Minotaur (and time... but you knew that one already), and hopefully it will be worth the wait. Which shouldn't be long now, so we're looking forward to discussing fates of Nod, Ollie and other residents of Royce with you really soon!

Yours,

Nick & u7committee

Hi _RedStar_! Indeed we are, Early Access should be out in a couple of weeks... It's cool that you still remember about us, by the way! Have you seen our new trailer? I hope the music this time is more to your liking : )

Yes i have seen the new trailer and i like it) the music this time fits better to the trailer and it is well matched not slow rhythm and not too fast. The music gives a sense of adventure, detective (mystery) and fun gameplay. I like it) good job. The trailer itself is well chosen, because it consists of many episodes of the game and gives a look at the parts of the plot, the transition from one episode to another gives the desire to find out what happens between the seen parts of the game. The game design is still at the same high level =) good job and i hope that you will keep this high level to the release of the game.
I wish you good health, creativity and many many different ideas) and the opportunity to realize them)).

Hi _RedStar_! Thank you for the detailed comment, I'm really glad you liked the trailer more this time :D We did spend quite some time on it, so it's cool that you liked the music, how the trailer is structured, and so on. Hopefully you won't resist you desire to find out what's happening in the game and I'll see you soon at our Early Access release : ) And thanks for you kind wishes too, hope you're having a great week and wishing you all the best as well! Cheers, Nick

It's been a while, but I definitely haven't forgotten about Minotaur! (or how much I love Ollie). The game has been delayed, but I'm sure every bit of extra time is being used to make the game even better :) On that note I see that on this page is says that the game was released on the 31st of January, which isn't quite right anymore. I've been spreading the word of the game a little bit and I had an artist I love make a small sketch of Ollie. She'll also be streaming the demo of the game!

Hi @Ahsalel! It's great to hear from you :D And we're very happy you didn't forget about Ollie. She'd be sad, you know. We promise to bring her to you soon! Thank you for pointing out release date error... aaand... fixed :) You're right, of course, we want Minotaur to be the best game it can be (provided we're the ones making it, ha-ha), so we'll continue to work on it until we're happy with the result, or until we die of starvation. Also thanks for spreading the word about Minotaur, it helps a lot! And the sketch is just great, we loved it, and it was a wonderful surprise... We're looking forward to Tsu streaming Minotaur demo (unless she hasn't already)!

I hope you'll continue supporting Minotaur... And that you'll like how it will have turned out :)

Cheers!

Nick

I'm loving the game so far! (I may or may not have fallen in love with Ollie)
I was a little late for the kickstarter, but if any opportunity arises I'll do whatever I can! Can't wait for the full release

I'll be sure to keep an eye out for those opportunities. If any Ollie merch comes out I'll be one of the first to get some :) (yes I am absolutely in love with her)
