Minotaur China Shop
Matthew Wegner of Flashbang "Off Road Velociraptor Safari" Studios dropped me a line about their forthcoming online home for their games, Blurst. He says it'll be full of prototypes and similar, and display each game they create with an eight-week development cycle. Which is great, but not something we'd link to until it was up and running properly. But on the site, I noticed that it claimed it'll debut with five games including Jetpack Brontosaurus and... Minotaur China Shop?
How could we have missed a game called "Minotaur China Shop"?
By being really stupid, as Google revealed Wegner had posted a tech-demo video last month. Those award-nominated indie-game-linking skills have failed us again.
Here it is:

First impressions? Sumotori Dreams meets Mr Magoo, leading to a fairly accurate simulation to what I used to be like when drinking in Bath. All it lacks is a final level where the lead character falls asleep in Set Menu C.
Clearly, we'll be linking to the game when it comes out. With another splendid name, how could we not?
