I really liked the look of Minute of Islands, the story of a DIY named Mo who lives on a chain of islands full of strange machines that keep some old threat at bay, when it was announced to the Guerrilla collective 2020. It was slated to come out later that same year, but failed to do so, and a scheduled release earlier this year was also missed. But it won't miss its most recent release date, because – surprise! "Today is today, and it's out."
The launch announcement also provides a little more information about Minute of Islands. It takes place in a beautiful archipelago contaminated long ago by dangerous spores. The only thing that keeps them at bay are the ancient antennae built by the giants when they lived next to humans. Now, with the giants gone and the machines broken, it's up to Mo to make the repairs and save his islands. But he soon discovers that not everything is as it seems and that the damage is deeper than he dared to think possible.
The vivid artistic style is what caught my eye the most, but Minute of Islands also promises "a poetic story of emotional and emotional self-exploration" set in a unique world and layered full of environmental secrets and puzzles. I’m a fool for that sort of thing, and I also enjoyed Studio Fizbin’s The Inner World adventure in 2013, so I’m really looking forward to seeing what’s going on here.
