Minute of Islands, an Adventure time Style Game
Minute of Islands is like an eerie Adventure Time type puzzle game, developed by Studio Fizbin. The hand-drawn style resembled a lot of the Adventure time characters and the story is set in a similar fantasy world like it. Except it is post-apocalyptic and has a poison affecting the inhabitants on the islands. It is up to the main character the ‘wielder of the omni-switch’ Mo to restore the giants who work to keep the oxygen pure and clean.
However, she notices the giants aren’t breathing at all they are in fact dying, so Mo sets off to activate each purifier, clear the air herself and bring the giants back to life so they can continue looking after the islands. Mo has her own complicated emotions and despite her great title and responsibility, she does not have the same greatness laid on the title niece, sister, or granddaughter. She tends to push her family away while being lost in her pride, work, responsibility, and expectations she’s made for herself, can you do something to bring Mo back?

Not to mention the significant detail has played a big part in Minute of Islands, things change all the time and that’s what Studio Fizbin has been conveying through the story as well as the artwork. Nothing stays the same, the small details they have in Minute of islands, such as bodies decaying, plants growing, sea levels rising and our main character’s health increasing or decreasing through body movement and expression, are fantastic. They truly bring the game to life.
Stages of whale decomposition. Minute of Islands is emotionally and visually beautiful. I can't get over it. Time for my second playthrough. #minuteofislands @MinuteofIslands pic.twitter.com/FnljYZgxgk

The atmosphere strikes up nostalgic emotions even though we live in a completely different world from the cartoon-drawn one, there’s so much to learn, relate to and understand.
Here is my personal footage of my gameplay, this is specifically a graveyard in the game. Instead of dark, eerie colours, they appear to be quite vibrant, yet the place lives in solitude, just how some of us feel after losing someone.
