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.


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.

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 fight,
  • multiple choices which affect progression and endings.

If you're stuck at Nod's or Maya's, check out our spoiler-free walkthrough.


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.


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.


We created our own universe with blackjack and hookers 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 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.

It's been a while since we posted any updates, but it was NOT for lack of activity. We were working on the game and preparing v. 0.2 demo, which is much longer and feature-rich then previous version, and launched our Kickstarter (and Greenlight) in the meantime. Not to mention first route is nearing completion!

A couple of links... Here's the demo:

And here's our Kickstarter page. If you haven't played the game yet, watch the trailer. We think it explains things nicely:

If you don't want to watch it for some reason (you don't like murder ballads, for example ), here's a short summary for you:

It's been 6 days since the beginning of our campaign, and at the moment of writing this article we've hit 30% of our €30K goal!

It was 29,83%, really, but we rounded up

We still have ways to go... But hopefully we'll get there with your help!

Let's talk about that v. 0.2 demo now. It features:

  • New content (second chapter of Nod's route, cutsenes, extras and new characters)

This is not your hovercar, but you'll need it

  • Character skills (Nod can now use "Little Helper" and "Axis vision" skills)

Using Axis vision is kind of like being able to "see" electricity

  • Integrated hint system (that's what "Little Helper" is for). No more problems with codes, hopefully.
  • Complete voice over from amazing actors — Brittany Lauda (Yandere Simulator), Chris Niosi (Reigen Arataka from Mob Psycho 100), Jill Harris (Naho from Orange), Lucas Schuneman (Tropico 4).
  • A lot of smaller improvements here and there

We hope you'll give it a go... And tell us what you think! Many things we did in V 0.2 were the result of your feedback here on Indie DB. It's certainly much more fun than playtesting on our own!

And don't forget... Minotaur needs your love to become a reality! Support us on Kickstarter, and help us spread the word.

Crowdfundingly yours,

Minotaur dev team

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!
Ollie on the bottom right :)

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 :)

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

Hi @Ashalel! Thank you! We hope you did (fall in love, that is). We're sorry that you missed Kickstarter, but yes, there'll be other opportunities ahead, so stay with us : )

Reply Good karma+2 votes

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)
