Feature: Hang on a second

Have You Played… Minit?

This year's E3 may have been dubbed "the year of the time-loop game", but I'd argue there's nothing as tight or as satisfying in this emerging subgenre as the 60-second sojourns you'll face in monochrome puzzler Minit. You play a small, nameless duck-faced fellow who has the terrible misfortune to happen upon a cursed sword that locks him into a minute-long time-loop, and - oh,…

Feature: Be less horrid

Halloween 2018 Special: Some lovely games!

Video games, you may have noticed, are often a little bit horrid. All sorts of naughtiness, and a distinct lack of people just being kind to one another. What are we like?!

The making of Minit: how constraints led to an indie gem

"So we kind of said this is a one time thing. We're all coming together to work on this one project." That sentiment is very much the spirit of Minit itself. The adventure game where you're stuck in a loop and each life lasts sixty seconds is all about doing as much as you can in the time given to you. It's a magic gem…
