I hope you're all enjoying your holidays (or that you did enjoy them if they're over already)!
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.
A voodoo doll of Nod
Hades, we even got a walking Armadillo mech in one of the scenes.
You have 20 seconds to comply
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.
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!
