[Rerun] Nominee: Minute of Islands
Presenting the 2020 IndieCade Nominees: Minute of Islands
Minute of Islands is a colourful comic-art adventure and a vibrant tale of transformation and exploration.
The game takes players on an adventure through an enigmatic world, set in a strange and beautiful archipelago, polluted by dangerous spores. The only thing keeping the islands safe are mysterious, mechanical-antennas built when Giants lived alongside people. But the machines are now failing, and the only person who can repair them is engineer Mo, and her versatile Omni-Switch.
Driven to protect her family and friends, Mo sets out on a quest where she encounters a cast of curious creatures along the way. But, as she explores the depths of the islands and the giants’ history, she will begin to learn that maybe her focus and ambition are not always the assets she believes them to be. It’s this realisation that leads Mo on a different journey of self-discovery, as she learns to accept her weaknesses and let others in and better look after those in her life. It’s a journey that will have players discovering more about the island and Mo, while also having them examine their own lives and priorities.
Minute of Islands is brought to vibrant life through its bold comic-book art style. It’s a look that sets the world apart from other games and adds to the charming personality of all of the strange and wonderful characters that Mo meets on her adventures.
