Minute of Islands’ creepy-cozy style drew a lot of attention when it premiered at Gamescom 2019. The “narrative puzzle platformer” is developed by German developer Studio Fizbin (the team behind the acclaimed The Inner World and its sequel) and is handcrafted in an illustrative style.
In the game you play the young engineer Mo on a spore-infested archipelago. Mo’s job is to fix ancient machines that keep the archipelago’s balance in check, but as you’ve probably guessed by now, they’ll soon find that things are not what they seem. What follows, at least from the piecing together of the various trailers that have been released, is a disturbing and introspective journey.
At this year’s E3, Studio Fizbin announced a release date for Minute of Islands, and it’s … right now. At least it’s currently available for PC, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch. An Xbox version will follow on June 15th.
