Minute of Islands

Mixtvision have announced another game for the Nintendo Switch: Minute of Islands (developed by Fizbin), releasing in early 2020 in Europe and North America.

Here’s a trailer, some details, and the list of key features:

The game places players in a strange and beautiful archipelago, polluted by dangerous spores. The only thing keeping the series of islands safe are mysterious 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 uncovers the truth of the islands and the giants living below the surface, she will begin to learn that maybe her focus and stoic ambition are not always the assets she believes them to be. It’s a journey that will have players discovering more about the islands and Mo, while also having them examine their own lives and priorities. It’s this realisation that leads Mo on a journey over the haunted islands of her homeworld and into the depths of her subconscious.

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. The world of the game is full of intricate details and tiny discoveries in nooks and crannies waiting to be explored.

  • Use the wand-like Omni-Switch to solve environmental puzzles
  • Unravel an emotional, poetic story of self-exploration
  • Explore a colourful and fantastic world across multiple unique islands
  • Meet curious characters and uncover the islands’ secrets
  • Enjoy hand-drawn comic-style visuals and deeply atmospheric soundtrack
