Hello Visionaire community!
We are proud to present you our project - Minotaur, that we hope will make a solid addition to the list of games made with Visionaire studio editor!
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.
On of the first things we'd like you to know about Minotaur... is that it's on Kickstarter right now! If you liked the game, please consider supporting it:
We have just started our campaign, and your help means a lot. You can also support Minotaur by spreading the word!
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.
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 (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.
See you soon in Nova!
